Makes 48 truffles.
8 ounces good-quality semi- or bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
Your choice of flavoring (see below)
Your choice of coating (see below)
Heat chocolates, butter and milk in a pan until chocolates and butter are partially melted. Remove from heat and stir until completely melted. Whisk in desired flavoring until creamy-smooth.
Transfer to a bowl and let stand until firm enough to hold its shape, about 2 hours.
Using a tablespoon (a spring-action 1 Tb. scoop is ideal), mold chocolate into balls, 1 level Tb. at a time, and place on a cookie sheet lined with greased parchment paper.
Place desired coating in a small bowl. Working one at a time, drop truffles into the bowl with greased fingertips. Shake bowl back and forth so truffles are completely coated. If necessary, roll truffles by hand to make round. Return to parchment. (Can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 5 days or frozen up to 1 month.) Before serving, let stand at room temperature to soften slightly.

How do you make a candy volcano out of clay plus, how to make the candy volcano erupt.?
For the eruption, the traditional thing is a mixture of baking soda and vinegar - you have a plastic cup inside the volcano, full of baking soda. When you pour vinegar in the top, the baking soda foams and bubbles and "erupts"
You could try mixing candy in with the baking soda...I suggest you try it at home before your daughter takes it to school.
What type of candy and gumballs should I put in my gumball machine?
I worked in vending , and it really does matter which specific location.
Since you only have 1 , I would just go with the best colors.
The grape , orange and watermelons move well , but more as a second machine.
Here is an site that you can choose any candy well sell if it taste good\
A candy mixture that is great is called kibbles and bits
You take chex mix, peanuts,pretzel Styx's. marshmallows (small) combine in bowl then take candy bark any flavor melt it microwave then pour it over mixture
