Now slowly add the sifted flour with the sifted dry yeast and mix with a wooden spoon. Now a pinch of salt and the chocolate chips, start kneading with your hands until you obtain an even dough giving it a round shape.
If the dough is too hard add a little more milk, if too sticky add a little 00 Flour/Plain Flour.

As soon as it is ready, on a lightly floured work surface, divide it into small rolls, place them on a baking tray (or two if necessary) covered with baking paper and spacing them out.

Cover them once again with a kitchen cloth and let them rise for another 40 minutes.

Brush them on top with a spoonful of milk.

Bake the rolls in a static oven at 180°C /350 F /Gas 4 for about 20 minutes, depending on your oven. They should be golden brown. At most, take one and check that it is cooked inside.

Let them cool to room temperature, dust them with icing sugar if necessary or leave them as they are.
