HURRICANE MILKY WAY CAKE

This is an old recipe from the 60s.

8 Milky Way candy bars (not the large size)
3 sticks butter or margarine
4 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup chopped pecans
1 small can evaporated milk
1 6-oz pkg chocolate chips
1 cup marshmallow creme

In a saucepan combine the candy bars and 1 stick of the butter or margarine. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted. Set aside.

Cream two cups sugar and 1 stick of the butter or margarine in a bowl; beat in the eggs, one at a time. Sift the flour and the baking soda together; add to the sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in the candy mixture. Add the pecans and mix in well. Pour into a greased and floured oblong baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Combine the remaining butter, sugar, and the evaporated milk in a saucepan and cook to the soft-ball stage, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips and marshmallow creme. Cool slightly. Beat until thick and spread over the cake.
