Sara Snacker's Handmade Tootsie Rolls for V. Day?

Still exhausted from making all those holiday treats? We are. No. More. Sugar. Cookies.

While trolling half-heartedly for a recipe for homemade granola the other day, we landed on New York-based Sara Snacker, whose mouth-watering array of cute treats had us filling up an online shopping cart before you could say chocolate-dipped Devil Dog.

We are particularly intrigued by the handmade Tootsie Rolls -- at $18 for 24, they better be darn tasty (and large!). We'll give it a shot. Can you imagine trying to make Tootsie Rolls at home?
