For those of you that like working with tootsie rolls and are in a bind and don't have any here is a recipe to make them.

Tootsie Rolls
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup light corn syrup
2 Tablespoons shortening
4 teaspoons cocoa
2 Tablespoons evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a bowl, combine sugar, shortening and cocoa. Mix well, and
pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then simmer until
temperature reaches 275 degrees (you will need a candy thermometer).
Allow to cool for about ten minutes; add the evaporated milk and
vanilla. Use an electric mixer to beat until very thick. Scrape
candy onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and allow to cool.
When cool, mold pieces into desired size and shape.

enjoy
