Instant Pot Tootsie Roll
You will love these tasty Tootsie Rolls. Slice into long logs or do midget size rolls. The choice is up to you! I wanted to do smaller sized ones, and I used parchment paper to wrap each of my rolls.
Are Tootsie Rolls Made Of Real Chocolate
You will use milk chocolate and white chocolate chips together for this recipe. Then the mix of honey truly combines all the flavors to make it a chewy Tootsie Roll! Trust me, I know it sounds crazy but it works really well!
Can I Make These Ahead Of Time
Absolutely! You need to allow the Tootsie Rolls to set up in the fridge, so making them in advance is a great idea. You need to factor in all the time you need for making, setting up, and then rolling each candy.
You can then keep each candy wrapped in parchment or even wax paper. This will help them to stay fresh and not stick together.
Is This A Chewy Recipe
Yes, you will find these candy Tootsies do offer a bit of a chew just like the classic recipe. Similar to a caramel, but a bit chewier in this texture.
Best Way To Store
This is up to you. Feel free to store on the counter wrapped individually or place them in the fridge. You will find storing the candies in the fridge will have a harder texture than storing them on the counter.
Variations To Tootsie Rolls Instant Pot Recipe
Feel free to add in a flavored extract to change up the flavor. Orange or even raspberry would be an amazing combination next to the sweet chocolate.
You can also chop up nuts really small and mix them in if you want a bit more of a crunch factor to your tootsie rolls.
Can I Double This Recipe
Absolutely! Feel free to double the recipe if you want to make a bunch. These are great to make for everyday snacking or even a fun dessert to serve up at the holidays.
Feel free to make as much as you would like, as long as you follow the max fill line on your Instant Pot.

- 2 Cups Milk Chocolate or Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips*
- 1/2 Cup Honey
- 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
- 1/2 Cup White Chocolate Chips
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- Add chocolate chips, honey, and heavy cream into your pot
- Cover with the lid, set to vent, and set to SLOW COOKER, (High) for 60 minutes. (You can also use a glass lid)
- When done, remove the lid and add in the white chocolate chips and vanilla.
- Turn the pot to saute. Start to stir really well with a spatula continuously while on saute.
- Keep stirring until all of the chips have completely melted and you have a nice smooth consistency.
- Line an 8 X 8 pan with parchment paper. I used clips to hold my parchment paper in place for safer pouring.
- Pour melted mixture into your pan. Let cool on the counter for 1 hour.
- Once cool, cut into 1 inch thick rows. Than cut each 1 inch row into 1/2 inch thick pieces.
- Wrap each piece in a square of parchment paper.
*Since supplies are tight right now, I used a combination of both milk chocolate and semi sweet chocolate chips. Still delish!
