Tootsie Roll Fudge

Tootsie Rolls rank high on my list of favorite candy. It’s chocolate-y.. but not as fattening as real chocolate. Though all of that goes out the window now that we’re going to make fudge out of them! Anyway. Did you know that Tootsie Rolls were the first penny candy to be individually wrapped? Or that 64 millions Tootsie Rolls are made each day? Or that the Tootsie Roll was invented in 1896 by Leo Hirschfeld (he used his daughter’s nickname of “Tootsie” to name his candy)? I’m also a big fan of Tootsie Pops – the grape flavor being my favorite. Does anyone know if the company will actually send you free candy if you find a wrapper featuring the Indian and the shooting star? I’m sure it’s just an urban legend.

In any case, here’s a new twist on chocolate fudge. Tootsie Roll fudge!

    I made these this week and it was sooooo good! I really love chocolate tootsie rolls. Vanilla is my favorite of the others and I’m very tempted to make this recipe with them. However, considering my husband and I ate this whole batch, there probably shouldn’t be a next time :)ReplyCancel

    When working as a cashier a child would appear ever so often with a indian wrapper. Its not true it is a urban legend, but once the manager gave a kid a pop any way.ReplyCancel
