    Peel the potatoes and cut them into ½-inch cubes. Combine in a Dutch oven with the milk, cream, butter and garlic.  Bring to a boil over medium heat, lower to a simmer, and let cook until just tender, about 15-20 minutes.  Remove and discard the smashed garlic cloves.  Season with salt to taste, then stir in the fresh chives and serve immediately.
