Chocolate Crinkles

4oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted

1/4 cup palm sugar
1 egg

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Yields ca. 20
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler. Remove from heat once melted.
Beat sugar and egg until fluffy. Stir in the chocolate mixture. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder. Add the flour mix to the chocolate mix. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, so that the batter is firm enough to shape into balls.
Preheat oven to 165C/325F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill a shallow bowl with powdered sugar. Form balls size of a walnut. Then roll the dough balls in the powdered sugar until they are completely coated.
Place the balls on the baking sheet about 1 and 1/2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are firm but the centers are still soft. Cool on wire rack.
