Recipe by Ambervim
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 1 Batch




  • Sift together the cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar, dry milk and salt.
  • Whisk together corn syrup, melted butter and vanilla.
  • Stir the wet into the dry.
  • At first it will look like there isn’t enough liquid. Keep going.
  • Then, using your hands knead the mixture together for a few minutes.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into managable pieces and roll it into a long, thin rope; cut the rope into 1-inch "tootsie rolls."
  • Transfer the cut tootsie rolls to a baking sheet or cooling rack.
  • Repeat until done.
  • Place them in the fridge for 1 hour and until firm.
  • Wrap the "tootsie rolls" in parchment or wax paper that are about 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch rectangles.
  • Yeild depends on how thin your ropes are. Time does not include chill time.
