This cherry chocolate cake is not only incredibly simple to make, but it is absolutely delicious. Anyone you serve it to will want a second piece!

Cake:

1 package devil’s food or chocolate cake mix

1 can cherry pie filling

2 eggs

Frosting:

6 Tbsp butter

1/3 cup milk

1 c. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 package semi sweet chocolate chips (12 ounces, or 2 cups)

Step 1: Combine

Preheat oven. Spray a 13×9 pan with nonstick baking spray containing flour and set aside. {If you’re opting for a fancier presentation, use a 10″ spring form pan like I did. It works beautifully!}

In large bowl, combine cake mix, cherry pie filling and eggs. Stir together with large spoon or rubber spatula. (Do not use a mixer; it will break up the cherries).

Step 2: Bake

Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350-degrees 30 to 40 minutes, or until cake is set.

Step 3: Frosting

While cake is almost out of the oven, combine sugar, butter and milk in large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. {I like a thicker frosting, so I boiled mine for 2-3 minutes.} Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir with a wire whisk until the chips are melted and frosting is smooth. Pour over warm cake and spread to cover. Let cool on wire rack before serving. 16 servings.

Step 4: Enjoy

Enjoy!
