Black Bean Fudge

4 squares chocolate, unsweetened

1 1/2 cubes butter (3/4 cup)

1 t. vanilla extract

1 2/3 cups black beans, cooked

2 1/2 pounds powdered sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

Melt unsweetened chocolate squares with butter in pan over medium heat or in 50% power microwave. Mix in drained and mashed black beans, vanilla extract and sugar. Place mixture in large buttered, shallow baking pan. Refrigerate until set.

I pureed the beans and chocolate mixture in the food processor, then added the powdered sugar, vanilla and cocoa and processed it until smooth. I also lined the pan with greased foil.
