What is your favorite candy bar?
Mine would have to be Milky Way®. It’s the candy bar I get whenever I want to treat myself or need a chocolate fix.
You can guess then that was a little more than excited when my mom informed me that she would be making a Milky Way Cake for dessert on Easter Sunday. YES, PLEASE!! The cake was divine and was filled with so much chocolate and caramel goodness, it could have put anyone into a chocolate coma!
My mom got the recipe from Twirl & Taste. She didn’t change anything about it at all, which is probably good because the cake was wonderful just as it was. If you like chocolate and caramel, then you won’t want to miss trying out this recipe to have your own little slice of heaven.
