1. Measure flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda into sifter.
2. Beat butter or margarine and brown sugar in a medium-size bowl, until fluffy; beat in melted chocolate, egg, vanilla and milk. Sift in dry ingredients, one third at a time, blending well to make a soft dough. Chill several hours, or until firm enough to handle.
