In large bowl, mix oil, chocolate, and sugar. Blend in eggs, one at a time, stirring. Mix in vanilla. In small bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt. Stir flour mix into oil mix. Chill 4 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spoon 1 tablespoon dough into a ball. Coat balls in confectioner's sugar. Place on baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool on the sheets for about three minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
