Mmmm ... Chocolate Cherry Cake ...

This is one of my all-time favorites ... I actually think of it as heaven in the mouth or dessert ecstasy! Got the recipe from my good friends Katy & Mary Ellen, and the back of the Pillsbury cake box!

1 pkg. Pillsbury Moist Supreme Devil's Food cake mix (pudding in the mix)
1-21 oz. can Wilderness cherry pie filling
1 Tbs. almond extract
2 eggs, beaten
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 9x13 cake pan. In large bowl, combine beaten eggs with almond. Add cake mix and cherries, stirring by hand until well-blended. Spread in pan. Bake 25-30 minutes.
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
5 Tbs. butter or margarine
1-6 oz. pkg. (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine the powdered sugar, milk and butter in a saucepan. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips. Stir until smooth. Pour and spread over warm cake. Cool completely. Allow frosting to FUDGIFY (Mary Ellen's word ... I LOVE it!). Cut into 48 bars or serve as cake with whipped cream.
