I love pumpkin rolls but I would like to make a dessert similar to that only using chocolate. Does anyone have a recipe?

Here is my recipe and I fill with Ice Cream for X-mas.
4 Eggs
1 cup Sugar
1/3 c water
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3/4 cup Flour (no self rising)
1/4 cup Cocoa
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Beat eggs until thick and lemon colored, beat in sugar. Beat in water and Vanilla on low. Gradually add the remaining 4 ingredients.

Bake at 375 on lined & greased Jelly Roll pan 12-15 minutes. Remove right away and roll in powdered sugar towel to cool. Unroll and fill.
