  • Stand Mixer (optional)
  • Baking Tray


  • 50 grams Butter unsalted
  • 220 grams Dark Chocolate
  • 210 grams Hard Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100 grams Sugar
  • 15 grams Cinnamon ground
  • 100 grams Powdered Sugar


  • In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter together until smooth.
  • Using a stand mixer (or by hand if you want the workout) mix together the eggs, sugar, and 5 grams of the cinnamon powder until a foamy mixture is created.
  • In another bowl sift the flour and baking powder.
  • Add the melted chocolate into the egg mixture. I left my stand mixer running at a decent speed to prevent the eggs from cooking. Then add the flour slowly making sure everything gets combined well.
  • Pour the batter into a resealable container and press down plastic wrap at the top so no part of the batter is exposed to air. Seal and place in the refrigerator for at minimum 3 hours (best overnight).
  • Using a teaspoon or a melon baller scoop out a tsp worth of chocolate and roll into a ball using the palms of your hands. Roll the balls in a bowl of powdered sugar and the rest of the cinnamon powder making sure every bit of the surface is coated.
  • Place the balls on a parchment lined baking tray and place in an oven preheated to 180 C for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes on the baking tray before touching them. You can use a spatula to lift them, but they don't tend to stick, so can just use two fingers to lift them off to plate.
