Homemade Tootsie Rolls
12 oz. chocolate chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. orange flavoring – optional (You can use other flavorings or just vanilla)
Melt chocolate chips. Then add the remaining ingredients. Line a pan that is about 13×17 with wax paper and spread the mixture on it until it is about 1/2 inch thick. It won’t go to the edges of the pan. Cover and let set overnight. It will be stiff but flexible. Now just roll it into pieces the size or shape you want. When they are all shaped, cover and let set again until they firm up again. They are ready to wrap in individual papers like wax, paper, plastic wrap etc.
