  • 8 Milky Way candy bars
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • Melt candy bars and 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently. Once completely melted, remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the sugar and 1/2 cup of softened butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mix well.
  • Add the salt and baking soda to the buttermilk and then add to the butter/sugar mixture. Add the flour and mix until well combined. Add the melted candy bars and vanilla and then pour into a well greased bundt pan and bake for 65 minutes at 350.
  • Make sure that the center is done and then cool the cake completely before inverting onto a serving plate.
  • To make the frosting, combine the sugar and evaporated milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook to soft-ball stage (234-240 degrees) and then remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Blend in marshmallow creme. Spread over the cake.
  • Top with additional chopped Milky Way candy bars if desired. Enjoy!
