Tootsie Roll Art

Did you know that you can use Tootsie Rolls like edible Play-Doh? Yup! It turns out that they are good for more than just removing your fillings or unhinging your jaw (giggle).
Tootsie rolls will go from a solid to a soft, malleable state with just a minutes or two of kneading in your hands or by heating it briefly in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds. Once they are soft, you can make just about anything you can think of! Now that Tootsie rolls come in a variety of flavors and colors, such as yellow, orange, white, green, and the traditional brown, it gives you a great palette to work with too. So the next time you make a cake that needs that little something on top, whip up a few of these.

Here's a few examples of things I made in about an hour... Pineapple, orange, and coconut

Rolling pin and cookie dough


Teacup and saucer

And look at the beautiful sushi that my son made!

You can even write with it!

So get out the Halloween candy and dig out all the Tootsie Rolls and gather the kids around the table and make something fun! Heck, it's not like anyone actually eats Tootsie Rolls any way, right?:-)


  1. I didn't know that! Cool! That sushi is so fun!

  2. WOW! I great idea. You guys did a terrific job. Your babyboy obviously has your creativity! I don't think my children eat tootsie rolls. I'll have to dig them out, give it a try, and see what we can come up with.

  3. so freakin cute! i love tootsie rolls! i'm one of the few...

  4. What a great blog! Fabulous pics too! Fun!

  5. I used them last Halloween to make spiders for the top of my cupcakes. How thankful I am the store was out of black gumdrops like the recipe called for!

  6. Yeah, I thought it was gross when my brother started randomly sculpting his tootsie rolls, but actually it is a little cool... especially the colorful ones!

  7. I love these! I will definitely make these!


Your comments really make my day. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave one!
