In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until very well combined and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the milk and vanilla. On low speed gradually add the flour and salt. Stir in the miniature chocolate chips.
Scoop the dough out onto a parchment lined worked surface. Cover with a large sheet of plastic wrap and roll it out with a rolling pin until it reaches about 1/2-inch in thickness. Freeze for 15 minutes. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out pieces of cookie dough. Place on a rimmed parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until firm, at least 30 minutes.
In a heat-safe bowl, combine the semisweet chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring between bursts, until melted and smooth. Dip the firm and very cold cookie dough hearts into the chocolate, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles, if desired. Refrigerate until set.
You could also decorate with a small amount of melted white chocolate, if you prefer!
