Homemade Rolo Candy


My favorite childhood candy was Rolo Chewy Caramels in Milk Chocolate. I ate *a lot* of them! Now that I’m a real foodie and not a fan of conventional chocolate (or chocolate companies) I look for alternatives. 

These homemade rolos are better than the originals because they don’t contain any of the junk. I used this cute little mold that I found on Amazon, soy-free chocolate chips and homemade caramel. So good!

Homemade Rolo Candy



    To Prepare Chocolate
  1. Melt chocolate and coconut butter or oil.
  2. Fill candy molds halfway up with chocolate mixture and place in refrigerator to set.
  3. To Prepare Caramel
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or oil.
  5. Add coconut sugar and stir until melted with butter/oil. It will have a taffy-like consistency if using butter but if using coconut oil it will just looked mixed.
  6. Add egg yolks, coconut cream or cream.
  7. Whisk thoroughly and bring to a boil.
  8. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract.
  9. Allow to chill in refrigerator.
  10. Place a small amount of caramel in the center of the chocolate, being careful not to let it touch the sides of the mold.
  11. Fill the rest of the way up with chocolate and place back into the refrigerator to harden.
  12. Pop out of molds and enjoy!

These are so fun! Bet you can’t eat just one!
