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.

Can you do this in a regular slow cooker? I don’t have slow cook function on my IP.

When did you add your vanilla? What did you change in recipe from original one?? Adult son (w background in science/tech) & I were excited to make this. We cook a LOT, but something was SERIOUSLY wrong/ missing from this recipe. While texture was “close enough” to expected, taste was Soooooooo bitter & off-putting, that even adding extra honey/white chips couldn't save. Completely unpalatable to the point we had to throw away. 4 people spit out after one bite each. Fir real. We followed the recipe, but wasted time & money. We wanted to love, but what a disappointment! We used Ghiradelli mikk chocolate chips and generic brand white chips (which tasted delicious ou of bag) so what could have gone wrong that end product tasted Sooo bitter?

I made these the other day and had one problem; they wouldn't set up just cooling on the counter for a few hours. I put them in the refrigerator a couple hours and then they were not too sticky to handle. I followed the recipe instructions but I make a couple substitutions. I used Hershey kisses for the milk chocolate and Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips for the white chocolate. Since I had no regular cream I used Silk dairy free heavy whipping cream alternative. Do you think I did something wrong or the substitutions caused the problem? THANK YOU!

I am not so sure. I feel like possibly the silk dairy free heavy whipping cream may have caused it. I am so sorry but my best suggestion would be to try again using regular heavy cream. I think the replacements on the chocolate were probably fine.

Yes as long as they melt down it should be fine.
