The most bang for the buck

I love recipes that taste and look more complicated than they actually are. Recipes like this

* 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
* 1/4 cup granulated sugar
* 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.)Milk Chocolate Chips
* 1/2 to 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
* 1 cup sliced almonds, finely chopped, toasted

COMBINE evaporated milk and sugar in small, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

STIR in chocolate. Stir vigorously until mixture is smooth. Stir in almond extract. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in nuts. Cover; refrigerate until ready to serve.

And that yield this

The fancy packaging certainly helps in this case.

What are your "Wow 'Em!" recipes? If you wanted to make something special to give as a gift or special occasion what would you make?
