I understand that 两块 here means two yuan.

But how should I translate “找你两块”? Thank you!

    It means "to return ¥2.00 in change". If something costs ¥8.00 and you gave the shopkeeper ¥10.00, then the shopkeeper has 收你十塊,找你兩塊. – droooze Apr 15 '18 at 5:53
  • submit 找你 (widely used) to any number of online dictionaries (just 找 may take longer to find the proper answer among different applications of 找),e.g. bkrs :找你五毛。 Your change is fifty cents. ichacha :这是找你的钱 here's your change – user6065 Apr 15 '18 at 6:53

To take a step back, a more complete exchange between the cashier and the customer could look something like this:

Customer: 這包餅乾多少錢?

Cashier: 這包餅乾8元。

Customer: 好,這裡10元。

Cashier: 謝謝,收你10元,找你2元。

Cashier takes $10 and gives back $2 in change.

找錢 means to give change, specifically, change owed given the difference in amount tendered and amount owing.
