  1. Melt chocolate and butter together. Blend into mashed potato with the salt and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  2. Sift sugar. Add a small amount of sugar to potato mixture, a little at a time, blending until no sugar is visible.
  3. When a spoon is no longer able to mix, knead in the remaining sugar with well-buttered hands.
  4. Turn out on a board and continue to knead until mixture is smooth, pliable and glossy, buttering hands as necessary. No crumbs should remain.
  5. Press into a buttered 8-inch square pan.

Yield: about 1 1/4 pounds candy
