Tootsie Roll Fudge

 Tootsie Roll Fudge
When my husband came home with 50 pounds of Tootsie Rolls he bought at a discount store, I had to figure out a way to use them-so I came up with this recipe! A red or green M&M's candy atop each piece makes them extra jolly.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 cups Tootsie Roll Midgees

  • butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, melt the Tootsie Rolls,
  • peanut butter and remaining butter over low heat, stirring
