Beat butter and 1 1/4 cups sugar in large bowl until lights and fluffy. Beat in corn syrup, egg, and vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl- add to butter mixture. Beat until well blended. Cover and refrigerate dough for 15min, until firm enough to roll into balls.
Place extra sugar in a shallow dish. Roll tablespoon sized (1in) balls of dough in sugar to coat. Place cookies 3in apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
