  • 15.25 oz box chocolate cake mix dry
  • 21 oz can cherry pie filling
  • 4 eggs beaten well
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the frosting:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Combine cake mix, cherry pie filling, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl, stirring until all ingredients are moistened.
  • Pour into a bundt pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Remove cake from pan and place onto a wire rack.
  • Once cake is cooled slightly, heat sugar, butter, and milk over medium high heat in a saucepan.
  • Heat to boiling and continue to cook while boiling for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips.
  • Keep stirring until completely melted (you may need to return pan to low heat for a completely smooth and melted frosting).
  • Pour frosting over cake and allow frosting to set and cake to finish cooling.
