TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + cooling Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 5 Milky Way candy bar (2.05 ounces each)
  • 1-1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • FROSTING:
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • Chopped walnuts, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • 2. In a heavy saucepan, stir candy bars and remaining butter over low heat until melted. Remove from the heat; stir in buttermilk.
  • 3. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with buttermilk mixture to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in nuts.
  • 4. Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 5. For frosting, lightly grease the sides of a large saucepan with 1 tablespoon of butter; set remaining butter aside. Combine sugar and milk; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Boil until a candy thermometer reads 234° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in marshmallow creme, chips and remaining butter.
  • 6. Transfer to a large bowl; cool to 110°. Beat on medium speed until smooth, about 5-7 minutes. Spread frosting between layers and over the top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
