Spud Fudge

I am watching Food Network, waiting for Bobby Flay to come on, and they are talking about potatoes-and one place they visited is a company making spud fudge. I found a recipe online, looks interesting

Spud Fudge

3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup unseasoned mashed potatoes (if using leftover seasoned potatoes, omit salt)
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup chopped nuts, toasted (optional)
  1. Line a 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking pan with lightly buttered waxed paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in top of double boiler. Remove from heat.
  3. Transfer chocolate/butter mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add potatoes, salt and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. On low speed of an electric mixer, using paddle attachment, blend in sugar and mix thoroughly. Add nuts and knead until smooth. Press into prepared pan.
  5. Cool in refrigerator before cutting into squares.

Makes about 2 pounds candy.

Of course I would need to use the darkest of chocolate. any of you make this before?

and here is another really good recipe, and a link to the original company making these

Here is a photo from the company that makes these
