Tootsie Rolls

Homemade Tootsie Rolls
2 TBSP Butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c clear corn syrup
3 c powdered sugar
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (melted)
3/4 c powdered milk (carnation has the best flavor)

Blend butter, corn syrup, chocolate and vanilla in a medium bowl.  Combine sugar and milk, stir in chocolate mixture.  Mixture will be crumbly.  Knead until well blended and smooth.  Roll into 4 long rolls, then cut into bite size pieces and wrap in wax paper.

I've tried this with a couple of different brands of powdered milk and found that carnation has the best flavor.  Also, as a time saver I put everything in my food processor.  Then I roll it out by hand.  Less mess.  This is a quick project and my kids love it.  You could try a some different variations on this recipe and substitute a flavor, like strawberry or cherry in place of the vanilla and use white chocolate squares instead of regular chocolate.  These are easy to make and super fun for birthday parties or a simple treat for the kids.
