Tootsie Roll Fudge

Tootsie Rolls rank high on my list of favorite candy. 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!

Yield: About 25-36 fudge squares
