1 tsp vanilla
200g plain flour
25g Bourneville cocoa
½ tsp baking powder

Make it

  1. Place chocolate and butter in bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the chocolate mixture and stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 160C. Line a baking sheet with non stick paper.
  4. Place icing sugar in a bowl. Form heaped teaspoons of dough into balls and roll in icing sugar.
