Homemade Chocolate Tootsie Roll Logs
I was bored so I wondered how to make a homemade tootsie roll and my mom and I got together and started tasting tootsie rolls. We started guessing what the ingredients were and we started putting it all together. We had to try over 3 times before we got it right. But when we did it was just perfect.
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon margarine
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (fine)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In a 4-cup microwave-safe measuring cup, microwave chocolate and margarine on High for 1 minute; stir and continue till melted and stir till smooth. Add corn syrup and vanilla.
Microwave on High for 1 minute; stir till smooth. Add 1 cup sifted powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs; blend well.
Pour mixture out onto waxed paper or wooden board; knead in remaining 1/3 cup of powdered sugar and walnuts.
Divide mixture into 4 equal parts. Roll each part into 10-inch long log-shaped strips. Cut each log shaped strip into 10 pieces. Wrap each piece in waxed paper, plastic wrap or candy papers.
