Tasty cherry chocolate dump cake combines sweet and tangy cherry pie filling with chocolate cake mix for a fudge brownie-like topping! It's a classic combination of chocolate and cherry that is sure to be a new family favorite dessert!
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and generously butter or spray a 9x13 pan or baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Pour both cans of the cherry pie filling into the prepared baking dish, add the almond extract, and gently mix to combine. Spread the filling evenly throughout the pan.
42 oz cherry pie filling, 1 teaspoon almond extract
Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the cherry pie filling so that all of the filling is covered. Pour the melted butter over the chocolate cake mix, trying to moisten as much of the cake mix as possible.
15.25 oz chocolate cake mix, ½ cup butter
Bake in the center of the middle oven rack at 350°F (175°C) for 1 hour or until the filling is bubbling and the cake layer is chocolate brown in color (no patches of dry cake mix left).
Remove the baked cherry chocolate dump cake when done and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
You can replace the butter in this recipe with cherry cola to increase the cherry flavor! Use 1 cup of your favorite brand.
