Beat 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar and 1 stick butter until fluffy, then beat in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Whisk 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt; stir into the butter mixture. Add 1 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup chopped cashews and 1 cup chocolate chunks to the finished batter. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls and bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
