I was teaching foods in a Texas high school when Southern Living published a luscious three-layer Milky Way Cake in Our Best Recipes, Volume Three. Editor John Alex Floyd, Jr., remembers the recipe caused a run on the candy bar at grocery stores 'round the South. More than a quarter of a century has passed, so it's about time to offer the recipe to you again. This time we transformed it into Heavenly Candy Bar Cupcakes (layer cake directions are provided as well) and developed an easy frosting. We've also included two other recipes using popular candies and cookies. Grocery store owners, get ready.

"Fun Candy Treats" is from the October 2004 issue of Southern Living.
