Line two oven trays with baking paper. Sift the flour, cacao and baking powder into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture forms a sandy consistency with no large lumps of butter. Slowly add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring, to form a dough – if the mixture is too wet then add a little more flour. Wrap the dough into plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas4 and place the powdered sugar into a bowl. Remove the dough from the fridge and form into small balls approximately 3½cm/1½in in diameter. Toss in the sugar so that they are completely coated and place the balls onto the prepared oven trays and bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.
