Chocolate Cherry Cake

Feeling inspired by the upcoming Valentine's Day, I thought I would share this amazing dessert!!! It is super easy to make with only 3 ingredients for the cake and 3 ingredients for the topping. I debated about what to name this recipe…3 plus 3 equals amazing…..or The BEST Chocolate Cake….or Valentine's Day Delight…. No matter what you call it the taste is a blend of so many wonderful decadent flavors!!!
I've made many versions of "dump" cake before….often using any flavor cake mix along with a can of pie filling. This recipe couldn't be any easier with a rich Devil's Food cake and the tart cherries mixed in. You could easily substitute a yellow cake mix with yummy results!
Equally easy is the mix of whipped topping with softened cream cheese and then topped with a can of cherry pie filling. You could leave the cream cheese out if you prefer the lighter taste of Cool Whip. The cream cheese just adds a richer creamier frosting which compliments the tart cherries.
Chocolate Cherry Cake

1 can cherry pie filling
1 box Devil's Food cake mix
3 eggs, beaten

*Mix all 3 ingredients together in a big bowl with a large spoon until well combined. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch glass pan. Bake according to directions on the cake box…until done. 

1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 can cherry pie filling

*Whip the cream cheese in a medium bowl until fluffy.  Blend in the cool whip. Spread over the top of the cooled cake. Top with the cherry pie filling. Enjoy a delicious piece immediately and then keep refrigerated.
