Cake on Crack

Due to popular demand, I am posting the recipe for “Chocolate Cherry Bars” mentioned by Peter in an earlier post. This is an anonymous recipe that i received at my bridal shower in September 2002. I believe that it is from the Lyttle family, but I’m not 100% sure. Happy baking!

Chocolate Cherry Bars


* 1 pkg. devil’s food cake mix * 1 21-oz. can cherry pie filling * 1 tsp. almond extract * 2 eggs, beaten


* 1 cup sugar * 1/3 cup milk * 5 T. margarine * 1 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 13″x9″ pan. In large bowl combine all bar ingredients; stir until well blended. Spread in pan. Bake until toothpick in center comes out clean (25-30 mins) In small saucepan, combine sugar, milk and margarine; mix well. Bring to a boil. Boil 1 min.; stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Pour and spread over warm bars. Cool 1 1/4 hours or until completely cooled.
