1

Heat oven to 400° F. Grease 15-1/2x10-1/2x 1-inch jelly-roll pan; line with parchment paper. Place large piece of parchment paper on counter top; sprinkle with granulated sugar.

2

Beat eggs and sugar together with electric mixer in large bowl until thick and creamy and spoon pulled through mixture leaves a trail (about 12 minutes). Sift flour and cocoa together; carefully fold into egg mixture along with 1 tablespoon hot water. Spread batter in prepared pan.

3

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in center. Immediately invert cake onto prepared parchment paper.

4

Make a dent along one narrow edge about 1/2 inch in from edge. From this end, roll cake with the paper in the middle. Place on wire rack. Cool completely.

5

Beat butter and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in melted chocolate. Unroll cake; remove paper. Spread 1/3 cup of the frosting on cake; roll cake back up.

6

Cut off 2-inch portion of rolled cake; place to one side of log to form a branch. Frost entire cake with remaining frosting. Mark frosting with fork to look like a log. Decorate as desired.
