-1 package of chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients needed to make the cake)
-1/2 cup butter (softened)
-1 can of cherry pie filling
-2 tablespoons sugar
-3/4 cup heavy cream
-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
-1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare your cake mix according to the package instructions.
2. Grease and flour a 9″x13″ cake pan. Pour in the cake batter and bake for 20-25 minutes until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

4. In a small bowl, mix the butter, pie filling, and sugar together until fully incorporated.
5. Spread the mixture evenly over the cake.
6. To make the ganache, combine the heavy cream and chocolate chips together in a medium saucepan over low heat until melted and combined. Stir constantly and remove from heat when it reaches a glossy, creamy consistency.
7. Pour the ganache over the cake until it’s completely covered.
8. If desired, top the cake off with chopped nuts and a little more cherry filling.
9. Cut into squares and serve.
