LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Valentine's Day and chocolate are a perfect match. 

Cloverfields Farm & Kitchen's Janine Washle is sharing ideas for a few sweet treats you can make for your special someone. She says chocolate truffles can be intimidating, but they are really simple. 

Basic Chocolate Truffles

Makes: Approximately 1-1/2 dozen

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1-1/2 cups milk-, bittersweet-, or dark chocolate chips (this lessens or increases intensity depending on your taste)

1-1/2 cups heavy cream

1 cup cocoa powder

Preparation:

1. In a medium-sized pan over low heat, combine semisweet chocolate chips and heavy cream, and stir until you achieve a smooth consistency.

2. Pour mixture into a rectangular bread pan.

3. Allow to sit in refrigerator for 1 hour or until mixture is solid.

4. With an ice cream scoop, form balls from the mixture (refreeze if truffle begins to melt).

5. Roll in cocoa powder for topping, and enjoy!

Mini cheesecakes are an ideal size to give as gifts. A strawberry on top adds just enough decoration to make it special. and Janine will share all these recipes with you, if you send her a request.
