Sugar Free Tootsie Rolls
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 3 dozen "Tootsie" rolls
These easy to make healthy homemade tootsie rolls are sweetened with stevia and an all natural high fiber sweetener. You won't believe they are sugar free.
Powder granular sweetener in blender or food processor.
Mix cocoa, whey protein powder, powdered milk, low carb sweetener, and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
Heat fiber syrup in microwave until bubbles form (about 30 seconds). Add melted butter and vanilla.
Stir dry cocoa mix into wet fiber syrup mix until crumbly. Using hands, knead mixture until a dough is formed.
Shape dough into a ball, then flatten out. Cut into strips and roll out each strip into a rope about the diameter of a Tootsie roll. Cut dough rope into Tootsie roll size pieces.
Wrap each roll in small rectangular pieces of wax paper if desired. Store rolls in refrigerator so they will be firm.
Can replace vanilla extract with other flavor extract such as orange or mint.
May be able to replace the fiber syrup with maltitol syrup or another thick low carb syrup, but added low sweetener used would need to be reduced.
The granular sweetener can be replaced with a low carb confectioner sweetener to eliminate the need to powder it.
