unsweetened cocoa powder
dry milk powder
white corn syrup
Awesome recipe! Okay, I can see how some of the other reviewers had problems. First off, if you use powdered milk, rather than Dry Milk (used in making bread - Sanalac is the brand I used), I can imagine the taste would be HORRIBLE!
As for making them, at first my batch was dry and crumbly, so I added just a smidge more butter and it came together. Think of it like play-doh that has dried out and you have to add a little moisture (in this case, butter or corn syrup), to make it hold together again. The only real way to work it was with my hands, but it was fun and not messy! It was a BIG hit with kids and grownups alike.
I'm going to make it with my kids' 1st grade class as a 'science/cooking' project!
HELP!! The looked and felt like tootsie rolls but didn't taste like it. I think I need to used DRY milk NOT instant - can NOT find DRY only. I can only find dry-instant and the stuffs not cheap! Also, cannot find DAIRY dry creamer. Can anyone in So. Cal. tell me where to find it? Or even order it online?? Thanks!
If you have trouble making this properly, I'd check to be sure you're using "dry milk" not "instant milk". There's a difference. Dry (non instant) milk is commonly used in bread recipes for celiacs.
I made this recipe with my Brownie Troop. We put all the ingredients into a ziplock bag and passed it around for kneading. What fun for everyone to participate and the end results were delicious!!!! with no mess!!!
This recipe was a HIT at my Son's Bake Sale!! I wrapped them individually in parchment paper and sold them for a quarter a piece, the went like wild fire!! I've been asked several times for the recipe! Thanks Erika!
I loved this recipe. I think they taste better than the store bought ones. Trick too if you don't have powered milk use dry dairy creamer.... Thank you for sharing this with us.
I found this to be a really fun recipe. It doesn't taste like the real thing, but the texture is a little similar. **tip** after all the ingredients are incorporated and have turned dark brown, place the mixture in a ziploc bag and knead from the outside. It won't stick to the bag or your hands.
I think they taste great, although not exactly like a tootsie roll. I was looking for something fun and easy to make with my little brothers (5 and 3 years). This totally fit the bill. It was fun, easy and yummy! What a great thing for little kids to make.
(SMALL HINT: I had to add a little extra corn syrup)
