    Well I could not find the Milky Way Ice Cream Topping either. I called Smuckers and was told that it has been discontinued. I asked the woman on the phone if there was a recommended substitution and she said "I can only tell you that it tasted like a Milky Way in a jar". I ended up buying Hershey's caramel and Smuckers Milk Chocolate and mixing 6 oz of each. Very good and very rich!

    My daughter selected this cake out of a bunch of other cake recipes I had to make for her 10th Birthday. The cake was very good. Could not find the Milky Way Ice Cream topping. Used caramel ice cream topping instead. Next time I may try the Reese's Peanut Butter topping, and sub in Reese's Peanut Butter cups for the candy bars.

    I made this cake today. It was very good! I could not find Milky way ice cream topping so I used Hershey's caramel topping instead. And I used the fat free sweetened condensed milk.
