PINTO BEAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE

1 can (15-oz) pinto beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 tbsp vanilla extract
7 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts

Place the beans in a microwave-safe dish and mash with a fork until smooth. Cover the dish and heat in microwave 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Remove dish from microwave. Add the cocoa powder, butter, and vanilla. This will make a thick mixture. Slowly stir in the confectioners' sugar. Stir in the nuts. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate until firm.

Yield: 3 1/2 pounds

Note: The pinto beans replace some of the butter normally used to make fudge. This fudge is creamy and the walnuts add crunch. No one will believe you made this fudge with beans!
