The recipe I see has the cake ingredients from 16 fun-size Milky Way bars (or 6 regular-size) to 1 1/4 cups buttermilk and all of the frosting ingredients below the buttermilk.

Where in the recipe did you find out what kind and how much chocolate to use? krm

Where is the rest of the recipe? I don't see anywhere about the ingredients for the frosting. The milky way mixture that is heated goes in the cake...Help! I'd like to try this!

German Sweet Chocolate is available in with the baking supplies. Baker's is the brand they sell at my store it is a large bar.

This looks good where do you get the Bar of German Sweet Chocolate?
