Cream butter and brown sugar till pale and fluffy
Add vanilla and egg and mix well.
Sift in flour, cornflour, baking powder, cocoa and dessicated coconut. Mix well.
Add chocolate chips and mix well.
Line baking trays with greaseproof paper. Roll small teaspoonfuls of
cookie dough in to balls and arrange on baking tray with 1cm space

When cooked, remove from heat and leave to cool.
