Melt chocolate in double boiler over hot water. Set aside to cool slightly. Drain beet juice into small bowl. Chop beets into very small pieces (can do in food processor). Add to beet juice and set aside.
Beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until very fluffy -- about 5 minutes. Beat in chocolate. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.
