Instructions

Step 1

In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

Step 2

In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until lightly and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract, almond extract and milk. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and almonds. Place dough in freezer 30 minutes to set.

Step 3

Remove dough and form round balls using about 1 tablespoon of dough for each. Place dough ball on cookie sheet covered with wax paper.

Step 4

Melt dark chocolate in microwave or a bowl set over simmering water until pourable and smooth.
