    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you are a chocolate and cherry lover then the chocolate is for you, this also is equally wonderful using a white cake mix with cherry or strawberry Jello, cherry pie filling and white Cool Whip or Whipped cream, I make the white version with my Kittencal's White Cake but boxed is fine

      Wow sweets, wonderful cake! This was DD's birthday cake and she loved it along with the family. I used black cherry gelatin and two regular sized cans of cherry pie filling. frosted with chocolate Cool Whip and sprinkled chopped nuts on top. A very moist cake that any chocolate and cherry lover will enjoy. Fantastic! I will be making this again for DD and my family! Thank you Kitten for a very nice birthday cake! Make and reviewed for KK's Recipe Tag Game.

      I made this today and used a butter chocolate cake mix, dark cherry jello and the cherry pie filling . I thought it was good but not fantastic...it seemed to need something but not sure what...I did enjoy it though as it was very moist and I love chocolate.

      I made the white version of this, as listed in the description and it was wonderful!!! The only recommendation I have is that you use a sharp knife and wipe it off (or rinse in a cup of water) as you are cutting the pieces as the cake tended to stick to our spatula. Will definitely make this again! Thanks! :)
