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 is a great recipe! Most has to be done by adults but the kids loved watching us stretch and pull the tootsie mixture lol. As for the woman who would rather buy store bought; yes they are very cheap because they're not made from natural ingredients like this recipe. So go ahead ingest your chemicals made in a lab, while others enjoy real natural tootsies.
