Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Melt the chocolate pieces and butter in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stove top, and allow to cool.
With an electric mixer, beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence until thick and pale.
Pour the melted chocolate into the beaten eggs and sugar and stir through.
Sift in the flour and baking powder, and stir through before adding the chopped chocolate and mix until well combined.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the mixture onto the lined baking trays. Without flattening the mixture too much, press smarties into the top of the cookies.
Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes and cool on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack. Note: If you put the cookies onto the cooling rack while hot they will become marked by the wires from the rack.
