1 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 squares semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup prepared Idahoan® original mashed potatoes, cooled
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk

Heat the oven to 375°F.
Beat the shortening and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
