I love Milky Ways, so it was only a matter of time before I made my own version at home.  Smooth chocolate, creamy, chewy nougat, and soft gooey caramel. What’s not to love? You’ve got to make these!

What’s your favorite candy bar? What would you like to see me create a copycat recipe for next?

Learn how to make Homemade Milky Ways with just 5 ingredients! These are so easy to make, and they taste just like the original!


  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff (7 oz)
  • 2/3 cups chocolate spread (I use Hershey's, you can also use Nutella)
  • 12oz chocolate candy coating
  • 7oz caramels
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk or cream


Step 1
In a microwave safe bowl melt 6 oz of the chocolate candy coating and stir until smooth. Spread evenly into a parchment lined loaf pan. Refrigerate until set (about 5 minutes).
Step 2
In a separate bowl mix together the fluff and chocolate spread. Microwave for about 30 seconds, stir, and pour evenly over the chocolate in the loaf pan.
Step 3
In a microwave safe bowl melt the caramels with the milk. Stir until smooth and pour over nougat layer. In a separate bowl mix together the fluff and chocolate spread. Refrigerate about 20 minutes or until firm enough to cut.
Step 4
Remove the candy from the pan and peel off the paper. Cut into 8 bars for full size candy bars or 16 for fun size bars.
Melt remaining candy coating in a bowl and dip the tops and sides of the candy bars until completely coated. Let the chocolate set and store in a sealed container.

  26. I don’t like chocolate (at all), but I have a weakness for caramel so am willing to overlook the stuff that surrounds it, especially in Milky Ways. That looks fantastic.
