See this recipe? Looks easy, right? I wanted to make something to bring to family and friends we are visiting this weekend. First batch, the chocolate chips melted easily and everything was going swimmingly until I added the 3/4 CUP of water instead of teaspoon. I wondered why it was so watery so I double checked after I had poured the batch into the pan. Um, yeah. Not supposed to be that watery. So, even though I was now upset with myself for wasting $2 worth of chocolate chips, I attempted another batch. And promptly burned the chocolate chips even though I put them in the microwave for 1/2 the time as the last batch. So I have decided that homemade tootsie rolls will not be making the trip to Canada with us this weekend, although I will try them again as soon as I figure out a way to master melting chocolate without burning it.
