2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6 and place a metal baking sheet inside.

3. In a heatproof bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water melt the chocolate, then set aside to cool slightly.

4. In a mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar until well-blended, then mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
