"Tootsie-Roll" Fudge

Yes, my husband and my children said that this "fake fudge" tastes just like Tootsie Rolls.  We all remember them from childhood, right?  If you loved it then, you will love this now!  Warning:  this is extremely filling, you only need one piece, it will fill you up!

As this recipe does contain honey, this is a rare treat.  I believe in using raw, local honey from kind beekeepers as it does have medicinal purposes and our family is prone to some environmental allergies.

"Tootsie-Roll" Fudge

1 1/3 Cups Local Raw Honey
1-15 oz. Container Joyva Sesame Tahini, stirred well to get the natural oil and lumps mixed.
1 Cup Enjoy Life Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

  • Heat honey in a sauce pan on low heat until it is a watery liquid.
  • Add the tahini and stir well for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and mix until well blended and until the mixture is a bit tougher to stir.
  • Pour into an 8x4 loaf pan with parchment paper on the bottom.
  • Refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
  • Carefully remove from the pan onto a cutting board.
  • Makes 12-16 pieces.
