Even though this clone recipe duplicates the tiny bite-size versions of the candy, you're free to make yours any size you like. The technique here is a tweaking of the previous secret formula that was featured in Low-Fat Top Secret Recipes, and it includes several upgrades. I found that more cocoa, plus the addition of salt and butter to the mix improved the flavor. I also found that bringing your sweet bubbling mixture to the firm ball stage 250 degrees F (you do have a candy thermometer, right?), and then stretching and pulling the candy like taffy (fun!) as it cools, will give you a finished product more like the real deal.

This recipe was realy fun to make. There a lot of pulling and steps to do that was the fun part. The tootsie rolls was great. Thanks For The Recipe......

This is awesome! I have made 3 batches since last night- given 2 away as gifts, and have gotten nothing but rave reviews. My kids said they don't taste exactly like tootsie rolls, but instead they taste more like a thick hot chocolate. And they loved them so much, they are thrilled with the idea of making them again. Kudos.
