If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, you’re seriously missing out. It’s nearly every appliance you use all the time — pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, warming pan — in one.

We love the Instant Pot for its versatility. You can even cook a whole chicken in one in just 30 minutes! And the benefits don’t stop there; Rare partner profiled a woman who lost 125 pounds and saved $200 a month, thanks to her Instant Pot!

Still not convinced? What if we told you that you can even make candy in it?

The Instant Pot makes it a breeze to whip up a batch of homemade Tootsie Rolls. Why make your own (as opposed to buying a bag at the grocery store)? This way, you can control exactly what goes in them — no corn syrup here!

You will need:

  • 2 cups chocolate chips (either milk chocolate or semisweet)
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


This recipe takes advantage of the Instant Pot’s slow cook and sauté settings. Find it at

And go get an Instant Pot! You’ll thank yourself for it.
