Ingredients for the icing:
1 cup powder sugar
1 T cocoa powder
1 T water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Whisk together the whipping cream, egg and vanilla in a bowl until well blended. In a separate bowl combine the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and the salt.

In a food processor, combine all the dried ingredients (flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and the salt) together. Add the cold cream cheese and the cold butter and pulse until the mixture becomes the size of small peas. Remove to a bowl, add the chocolate chips and mix.

Add in the mixed liquid and stir till just combined. Pour out onto a flat surface and knead a few time. Do not over knead.

Shape into a 6-inch by 8-inch rectangle. Cut into 8 pieces and place onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. When cool, drizzle with the icing.
