I was happily and busily at work in the kitchen, trying to come up with a new concoction for the Art Shoppe, when I accidentally made Tootsie Rolls!
Quite the accident, if I do say so myself. I love Tootsie Rolls! They are chewy and chocolate and they were named after a cute little girl, Tootsie, by her loving father. Like many wonderful things, they came out of New York City and are over 100 years old! Not to mention they are still a best selling candy!
Surely this isn't the "Tootsie Roll Industries" recipe, but it bears an uncanny resemblance:
Complete Step 1 of candy fondant recipe
Begin Step 2, but when it comes to adding flavor simply add a combination of 1/2 Chocolate Sweet Sauce, and melted chocolate
Thoroughly knead together
Shape and allow to air dry for several hours
