Homemade Tootsie Rolls

Ingredients: 6 tbsp. of baking cocoa, 1 tsp. vanilla, ¾ cups of powdered milk, 2 tbsp. butter, 3 cups of powdered sugar (divided up), ½ cup of corn syrup, cooking spray

Instructions: In a sauce pan (on med) heat butter, cocoa, and corn syrup until smooth and melted. Stir in the powdered milk and the vanilla extract. Remove from heat. Add a cup of the powdered sugar and stir until it is incorporated. Once that sugar is mixed in, add a second cup of powdered sugar and stir to mix. At this point the dough will start getting stiff and it might be difficult to stir more powdered sugar into the candy. Dust your work surface with powdered sugar (using the remaining cup of powdered sugar. 1/2 cup at a time), and knead the candy until it is smooth. If it is still very soft, knead in more powdered sugar until it is firm but not dry or crumbly.

The dough might be a little sticky, but it dries as you work. Once the Tootsie Roll candy is smooth and a perfect firm, break off a small piece and roll it into a long, thin rope. Using a sharp knife, cut it into small pieces and place them on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat until you have formed all of the Tootsie Roll dough into small pieces. Refrigerate the tray of Tootsie Rolls until they firm up, for about 1 hour. Wrap Tootsie Rolls in waxed paper to keep them from sticking to each other. They will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (courtesy of gluesticksblog.com)
