Chocolate Cherry Cake...

Every time that I have made this cake it's been a hit with every one. I prefer Duncan Hines Cake mixes, especially for this cake. Devil's Food was just a little too dark chocolate for me. I really like German Chocolate the best. This picture is made with a German Chocolate cake mix. Enjoy!

1 pkg Chocolate Cake mix, any chocolate cake mix.
1 can Cherry Pie Filling
1 tsp Almond Extract or vanilla I prefer almond
2 eggs, beaten

Mix all together and pour into a greased and floured 9x13 cake pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. it works best if you mix it by hand and reserve a third of the can of cherries until the last minute so that you will have some whole cherries in the cake.

Prepare frosting while cake is baking.
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter

Boil for 30 seconds and then add;
1 cup mini marshmallows, heaping
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix until everything is melted and pour over the cake as soon as you take it out of the oven.
Cool and serve.
