Note: This is another recipe from the Lady from North Carolina. It uses rum instead of vanilla because this cake resembles a popular milk chocolate rum flavored candy. Use 8 oz. milk chocolate candy bars for the cake and for the frosting.
Tip: Melt chocolate in a microwave at 10 second intervals or in a double boiler.
Cake can also be baked in a 10 inch by 4.25 inch tube pan for 60 minutes and dusted with powdered sugar.
