1/2 cup milk
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 box super moist chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup cherry pie filling (I used the whole can)
1 tsp almond extract
Mix eggs, milk and cream cheese until smooth. Add cake mix and almond extract and mix well. Pour half into a well greased 6 quart slow cooker. Add a layer of pie filling then remaining cake batter. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
Originally, this was a dutch oven recipe. It sounded really good so I thought I would give it a whirl in the slow cooker. It was quite a bit like the chocolate cherry cobbler. Although, I liked this was a bit better with the cream cheese addition. I didn’t love this dish and was actually a little disappointed. I wouldn’t waste my calories on this dessert if I were you. There are so many better desserts out there. Like the cream cheese brownies, the peanut butter hot fudge sauce, the graham cracker cookies, or the caramel chocolate cake. If I do make a cherry dish again, I will probably make the cherry delight, which I liked much better than this one. 2 stars.
