For as long as I can remember my Dad has loved Cherry Chocolates. It was not uncommon to find a box of them on his nightstand every night throughout the Christmas season. We always knew what we were getting him for Christmas and even now I when I see them at the stores I always want to buy a bunch for him. Through the years it's become one of those things we just associate with Dad. I will never be able to see or eat a Cherry Chocolate without thinking of my Dad. So of course I knew I HAD to make this recipe for him. He absolutely loved it. If you have a Cherry Chocolate lover in your family- I know they will too.
Cherry Chocolate Cake
1 box Devils Food cake mix
1 can Cherry Pie filling
1 tsp. Almond Extract
Stir cake, pie filling, extract and eggs together (stir by hand so cherries do not break up). Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool.
1 cup Sugar
5 Tbs. Butter
1/3 cup Milk
1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
In a saucepan combine sugar, butter and milk. Boil for 2 minutes- stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until completely melted. Pour immediately over partially cooled cake.
