When I was in college I had a roommate that made this incredible Milky Way cake that used melted Milky Way, and an amazing frosting. I was so excited to try making this Milky Way bundt cake out using Simply Caramel Milky Way BITES. These little BITES of goodness are amazing people. I’m not even kidding. They’re perfect little snack to pop in your mouth and enjoy when things get a little crazy around the house (or is that only me?). However, they’re super fun for baking with too.
Grab the ingredients that you need for the cake.
You’ll take your Milky Way Simply Caramel BITES , and butter and melt them in a pot together. This will take a little while, and I’d do it on medium heat. I’m totally guilty of doing things like this on higher than I should, because I’m impatient. However, don’t. 🙂
Once you’ve gotten that all melted, then you can add your dry ingredients. Spray a bunt pan (or any other kind you’d want) with cooking spray, and pour the batter in.
When you cake is done and cooled, you can get your frosting going.
You’ll just combine the evaporated milk, sugar, and butter in the a sauce pan and let that boil for a few minutes. Once that’s done, remove from heat, and add your chocolate chips, marshmallows and vanilla. Stir until combined.
WATCH carefully while it’s boiling and turn the stove down accordingly. If you don’t pay close enough attention …. this might happen to you. I promise having a smoke filled house with windows open, and having to scrub a stove that has caramel is really hard, and not a lot of fun. However, it’s real life sometimes. 🙂
When the cake is done baking, let it cool for a bit. Then I just drizzled the frosting on top of the cake. I love how it turned out.
I wanted to liven it up a bit though, and make it festive for Easter. I love the pop of color. I used the Easer M&M’s (they’re speckled and perfect). You could easily use jelly beans, or any other candy you love.

- ** Keep an eye on the cake. It make take longer, or not. You don't want the bottom to burn though, so be careful with it.
- Let the cake cool in the pan for 30-60 minutes. You can try to dump it out of the pan at that point. Don't pry too hard or it may end up in pieces.
- Combine evaporated milk, sugar, and butter in a sauce pan.
- Let it come to a hard boil, and keep it there for 4 minutes (make sure to stay by it and turn down the heat if it gets going too high, you don't want to over boil).
- Remove from heat.
- Add in chocolate chips, marshmallows and vanilla. Beat until it's a spreading consistency.
- This will thicken as it cools, so you'll want to get it on the cake sooner than later.
