Sugar-Free Tootsie Rolls

 1/4 cup Whey Low
 2 tablespoons water
 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
 1 tablespoon Maple Leaf butter powder
 2 tablespoons cocoa
 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
 2 tablespoons powdered Whey Low

1

Add the Whey Low and water to a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, then microwave again for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave again for another 30 seconds. (You're basically making a "corn syrup substitute" at this point.) Be very careful. This mixture will be hot.

2

Next stir in the nonfat dry milk, butter powder, cocoa, and vanilla. Blend. Work in 1 tablespoon of the powdered Whey Low. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of Whey Low onto a "kneading surface" and turn the tootsie roll mixture out onto it. Knead the mixture until it's no longer sticky to the touch. Divide mixture into 12 "rolls."

3

Be sure to wrap the candy in plastic wrap or waxed paper as soon as possible. Otherwise, the candy will quickly dry out.
