- 1 chocolate fudge cake mix
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
- 1 cup sugar
- ⅓ cup milk
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Mix first four ingredients and pour into a greased cake pan. Bake at 180 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
- Bring sugar, butter, and milk to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips and continue stirring until melted. Frost cake immediately.
Two variations: Make this in individual sized ramekins. Adjust baking time to about 15 minutes, or until top springs back when touched. Cut cake or mini-cakes in half, make a little extra frosting (1.5x), and add a layer of frosting in between the layers of cake.
