Tootsie Roll Fudge


Do you have a childhood memory of a special candy?
Mine is Tootsie Rolls.

I always have a candy dish full of Tootsie Rolls.

Take a peek at how you can make your own
 Cheery O Bowl

I found this wonderful recipe from Camie at
Home Cooking For Six

Ingredients:1 teaspoon plus 2 Tablespoons butter, divided
2 cups Tootsie Roll Midgees
2-3 Tablespoons peanut butter
3-1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
2 Tablespoons milk (or to desired consistency)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (if desired)
Candy to decorate or mix within
(Heath bar, M&Ms, Peanut Butter cups, Reese's Pieces, etc)

Line an 8" square pan with foil.  Grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter, set aside.
In a heave saucepan, melt the butter, Tootsie Rolls, peanut butter and remaining butter
over low heat, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Gradually stir in the
confectioner's sugar, milk and vanilla (mixture will be VERY thick). 
Mix with hands on counter top.

Fold in nuts or candy (optional).  Spread into prepared pan.
Top with candy, if desired, OR using a sharp knife, score the surface into 1" squares.
Press candy into the center of each square.  Cool.  Using foil, remove fudge from pan.
Cut into squares.  Store in an airtight container.
