  • 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


  1. Combine cake mix, cherry pie filling, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl, stirring until all ingredients are moistened.

  2. Pour into a bundt pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray.

  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

  4. Remove cake from pan and place onto a wire rack.

  5. Once cake is cooled slightly, heat sugar, butter, and milk over medium high heat in a saucepan.

  6. Heat to boiling and continue to cook while boiling for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  7. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips.

  8. Keep stirring until completely melted (you may need to return pan to low heat for a completely smooth and melted frosting).

  9. Pour frosting over cake and allow frosting to set and cake to finish cooling.
