Sunday's are Chocolate

I never thought a cake could be so easy here it is. The cherries add so much flavor and make the cake so moist. I would call this a cake not a bar it is moist like a cake. When I think of bars I think more like a brownie. The night I made this cake it was really late, I only covered it with a towel. All night I thought that it was going to get dried out. Oh was I wrong it was moist to the touch. The next morning I iced it with the canned frosting just like the recipe called for. Usually I prefer to make icing. But I had already made a cake that day to give away that I had already shared on my blog. Sometimes I just hate doing any more dishes. This recipe came from the back of a Betty Crocker Cake Mix box. MMMMMMMMMMMM GOOD oh that's Campbell's soup. Sorry

Triple- Chocolate Cherry Bars

1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist chocolate fudge cake mix
1 can (21oz) cherry pie filling
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 bag miniature semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
1 container Better Crocker Whipped chocolate frosting

Heat over to 350 F Grease and flour, or spray with baking spray with flour, 15x10x1 inch or 13 x9 inch pan.
In large bowl, gently mix dry cake mix, pie filling, eggs and chocolate chips with rubber scraper, break up any undissolved cake mix by pressing with screper. Carefully spread in pan.
Bake 15x10x1 pan 25 to 30 minutes, 13x9 inch pan 35 to 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Frost with frosting. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. 48 bars. No change for High Altitude 3500 to 6500 ft

That cherry chocolate combination is hard to beat. As to the prepared frosting - if it works, it works.

This is one of my "go to" cakes for the past 15 years at least. My only change is using THREE eggs. I make variations of this too...chocolate cake with raspberry pie filling and spice cake with apple pie filling. I put everything (including fruit) in the bowl and beat the heck out of it. The beaters will break up the fruit just enough to distribute it well throughout the cake. It is the BEST.
