Healthy Homemade Tootsie Rolls

Posted by Jane Dizon in Syrup
Thanks to Lisa at Low Carb Yum for creating this VitaFiber® IMO candy recipe. This recipe is completely sugar-free and it is modified to be a healthy low carb candy treat.


  • 4 Tbsp (60g) VitaFiber® IMO syrup
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa
  • 1/4 cup of whey protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup of sweetener
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 2 Tbsp of melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract


  1. Blend sweetener in food processor or blender until powdered
  2. Mix cocoa, whey protein powder, powdered milk, sweetener, and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat VitaFiber® IMO syrup in microwave until bubbles form (about 30 seconds).
  4. Add melted butter and vanilla.
  5. Stir dry mix into wet and mix until crumbly. Using hands, knead mixture until a dough is formed.
  6. 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.
  7. Wrap each roll in small rectangular pieces of wax paper if desired. Store rolls in refrigerator so they will be firm.
  8. Makes 3 dozen rolls.
