These are a simple yet rich and impressive little dessert. Serve with a garnish of mint leaves for an added zing. These can be dry. You might want to increase the amount of milk by 50-100%, to your taste, but I just pour a big glass on the side. The richness of the chocolate chips help balance any dryness but does add to the thirst factor. These pair nicely with my Swedish Tea Cakes. Bundle these up and present them as a gift for any chocolate lover. This is very simple; a good recipe for beginner bakers. Note: they don't make perfect balls b/c of the chips.
