After Halloween, we still have a houseful of candy. Typically it is from the kids trick or treating stash, but this year it was cold and a school night.  We barely had any trick or treaters Halloween night.  I may have gone overboard with the candy buying and had a HUGE bowl of tootsie rolls just sitting by my front door starring at me.  So I hit my cook book shelf. Yes, I know I could have hit Pinterest and found something quickly, but there is something about old church cookbooks that can’t be beaten!  I came across this recipe for Tootsie Roll Fudge.  I will admit I was skeptical making it up until I cut it into bites.  It is very thick and called for a bit more sugar than I wanted to use.  But it is FUDGE, it isn’t really supposed to be healthy. ~giggle~

I was very pleasantly surprised with the end result.  The fudge is amazingly good!  You can still taste the tootsie roll a bit, but it has that classic fudge consistency with a hint of peanut butter.  Hubby said I need to hide it from him, so I am guessing that means it was a hit.

  1. The kids have plenty of leftover tootsie rolls of various sizes. Can you tell me about how many you needed? Thanks, I look forward to making this and thanks for posting. I also plan on skipping the pecans, that should be ok right?
