  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Put the butter and caster sugar in a bowl and cream with an electric whisk or wooden spoon until light and fluffy. Add the condensed milk and whisk until combined. Stir through the flour. Add 150g of the chopped chocolate and work through with a wooden spoon.
  2. Roll the dough into about 25-30 balls. Flatten slightly and place, spaced well apart, onto lined baking sheets. You will need to bake in batches. Bake for 12-15 mins until lightly golden.
  3. Leave to cool for 10 mins on the baking sheets to harden slightly, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. To decorate, line 2-3 baking sheets with baking paper. Heat the remaining chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, remove the pan from the direct heat but keep the bowl over the saucepan. Half-dip each cookie in the chocolate and allow the excess chocolate to drip off back into the bowl. Hold the cookie over another bowl and scatter over a spoonful of desiccated coconut, allowing the excess coconut to drop into the bowl. Place the cookies onto the lined baking sheets and leave for 15-20 mins to set.
