2 In microwave or double boiler, melt 7 Milky Way ⢠candy bars with 1/2 cup butter. Stir until smooth, and set aside to cool.

3 In a large bowl, cream sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in the melted candy mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.

4 Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for about 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out dry.

5 To make the glaze: Melt 3 Milky Way ⢠candy bars with 6 tablespoons butter. Pour glaze over top of the cake, and let it run down the sides. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired
