1/3 cup (35g) cocoa powder

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 egg

Beat in egg and vanilla.

2 gently mix flour mixture into butter mixture. Add dark chocolate and mix until just combined. Chill for 30 minutes, until firm.

3 preheat oven to 160oc and line 2 large oven trays with baking paper.

4 using clean hands, shape dough into walnut-sized balls and arrange 5cm apart on prepared trays. Flatten slightly and dust with icing sugar.

I swear the hot gooey biscuit fell apart when I was transferring it to the cooling rack. 
Can you see the one with the bite taken out?
Try using a different flavour chocolate, my Mum likes it when I use mint chocolate.
I prefer using Lindt, chilli chocoloate.
What is your favourite flavour chocolate?
