Melt chocolate and butter in top of double boiler.
Mix rest of ingredients, except extract, in large heavy bottomed pot and cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved.
Lower heat and continue cooking without stirring to 262º (hard-ball stage).
Remove from heat, add chocolate and butter, stirring only enough to blend.
Pour into a shallow greased pan. Put flavoring in center of the mass and work carefully into the mixture. When cool enough to handle, remove from pan, divide into pieces, and pull until somewhat lighter in color.
