~Tootsie Roll Mousse!

I confess, that in the world of candy choices, I will dig around through piles of Tootsie Rolls to get down to the Kit Kats!  Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate a good old Tootsie Roll now and then, but they always leave me pondering that nagging question, “hmm..am I in the mood right now to chew, and chew, and chew…and, chew?”   Usually not, even though I really love that one of a kind Tootsie Roll flavor!  Well, I think this recipe solves all of my dilemmas, and it’s so easy and simple. 

It’s a smooth as silk, packed with flavor, and oh-so-spoonable Tootsie Roll Mousse!  It’s so thick and creamy, yet somehow still has that classic chewy feel to it, even though it’s not chewy at all! 

For a unique way to enjoy all the greatness of a classic Tootsie Roll, and none of the missing fillings, give this a try! :)


What you’ll need:

40 mini Tootsie Rolls (midgees)

1-14oz  can of  Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 container of Cool Whip Topping..reserve about a 1/2 cup for garnish


In a medium sauce pot add the sweetened condensed milk and all the unwrapped tootsie rolls, melt them together over medium heat, stirring constantly!

Mmm..spoonable Tootsie Rolls!

When it’s combined and smooth, let it cool, almost completely and gently fold in the Cool Whip!  Don’t over mix it, a few streaks is fine!
Serve it in some cute bowls and top with some Cool Whip and a Tootsie Roll!  Dig in to the best mousse you’ll ever have!  It’s all the incredible flavor of a Tootsie Roll, without any of the work!  Your jaw will thank you!  And no worries..it’s still thick and almost chewy..but NOT!  ~Enjoy! :)
