One of the detectives at work share a birthday with my BFF and BIL. He loves Black Forest cake and after making it for him I think it might take over first place as my favorite cake. Man was it nummy num and easy to boot.
Easy Black Forest Cake
1 package dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 can of cherry pie filling
1 to 1 1/2 tubs of Cool Whip
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 jar of hot fudge topping
maraschino cherries for garnish
Mix the chocolate cake mix together (as directed on package) and add in half of the pie filling and the almond extract. Bake according to directions. I had left over cream cheese icing but if you don't have any just ice cake with Cool Whip after the cakes have cooled completely. Then add the other half of the pie filling to the top and drizzle hot fudge on top. Add maraschino cherries if desired. Then eat it up! If you have leftovers keep refrigerated.
