Homemade Tootsie Rolls are simple to make and talk about a special treat. Plus know what goes into making them is always a plus around our home. This recipe makes quite a few of these little goodies. There are no fancy ingredients, I always have everything I need sitting in my pantry.
2 Tablespoons butter softened
1/2 cup cocoa powdered
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup corn syrup
3 cups powdered sugar
In a medium size bowl add all the ingredients. Stir until you can’t stir anymore.
Now using your hands start turning and kneading everything in the bowl. You can do this in the bowl or on your counter top. The cocoa powder will start to come out and will turn everything a nice chocolate color. Just keep kneading until everything is completely combined.
Divide the dough into 4 to 6 equal parts. Using your hands roll the dough into a long rope.
Cut the Tootsie Roll ropes into the size you would like. Roll them in wax paper and twist the ends tight. ENJOY!
Kiwis were on sale and well I can’t pass up a deal. Plus I am always looking for ways to make healthy treats to have on hand for family, friends and guests. Plus dehydrated fruit goes well into gift baskets.
Dried kiwi taste a bit tart. If you would like a sweeter treat sprinkle with fine sugar as soon as they are done dehydrating. Let them cool before packaging.
Gather up your supplies kiwi, knife, dehydrator or you may use your oven.
Wash kiwi. Peel kiwi and slice into 1/4 inch slices. If you have an egg slicer this works really well. Just don’t slice them to thin, they will burn.
If you want to keep the bright green color of your kiwi make a simple ascorbic acid dip. One cup water and 2 tablespoon ascorbic acid. Stir to mix. Dip your kiwi slices into the mixture.
Place kiwi slice onto your trays. Don’t overcrowd or overlap slices.
Dry on 135 degrees. Watch so they don’t burn. We like our somewhat chewy not crunchy. I like to check mine every 30 minutes. They should be dry to the touch.
Store in airtight container or bag. Don’t refrigerate.
You now have healthy snacks that you will feel good about giving your family. ENJOY!
This is a recipe that has been made over. Instead of using cocoa in these cookies I decided to try some Nutella I had sitting in the cupboard. My grandson loves Nutella anything. So Remington these cookies are for you. Make sure mom makes a batch of these yummy cookies. I know you will be in the kitchen helping along with your brother.
