White Chocolate Party Mix
this is always a hit with the younger crowd. a classmate dubbed it "super cereal". however adults seem to find it a little too sweet. i use reese's peanut butter pieces instead of M&Ms, and reduce the amount of white chocolate slightly.

Easy Decadent Truffles
these taste delicious, with the adjustments others suggested (2c. confectioner's sugar, 2c. semi-sweets). mint was everyone's favorite. i used the dark chocolate mint candy melts from Michael's and splattered green tinted white chocolate on top. i also double-dipped to give a nice thick shell on them. a few things that helped me tremendously with dipping: 1. if they're lumpy/puffer-fish like after rolling, put them in the freezer for a while and give a quick roll prior to dipping. 2. use a floral block/foam to stick the tooth-picked truffles in to set between and after dipping. toothpick comes out clean after they have cooled completely. 3. add paraffin to the dipping chocolate. i added 1/3 block to 2lbs of dark chocolate.
