Once you have the base, you can start to add to this. For example, want to make it chocolate mint, add mint extract. Or swap out the milk chocolate for white chocolate; then add mint extract and green food coloring. Boom, it's grasshopper.
You can also mix in many ingredients like nuts, candy canes, etc. The possibilities are endless.
Happy Candy making!
