Melt chocolate over a double boiler and allow to cool.
Whisk off yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Add brandy and fold in melted chocolate.
Whisk egg whites till soft peaks form and fold through chocolate mixture.
Spread mixture evenly into the tin. Bake 12-14 mins at 180 deg c.
Remover from oven. Cover with a clean cloth and allow to cool. Dust an extra piece of silicone paper heavily with icing sugar.
Turn out roulade and spread with filling. Roll up and allow to set in fridge for 30 minutes before serving.
