Cherry Chocolate Cake

This is my most favorite chocolate cake EVER! I got the recipe from a roommate years ago and have made it so many times. I actually like it better the next day, after it has gotten moist from the frosting. You won't be able to stop eating it!

For the cake:
1 box chocolate fudge cake mix
1 21-oz can cherry pie filling
1 tsp. almond extract
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch pan and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk eggs and almond extract. In a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix, then mix in the eggs and almond. Add pie filling last, gently folding into the batter (by hand). Pour batter into sprayed cake pan and gently shake to level.

Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes. Cake will be spongy. Cool slightly and poke holes all over with fork.

For the frosting:
1 cup sugar
5 Tbsp. butter
1/3 cup milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

In small saucepan combine sugar, butter and milk. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Add vanilla and stir. Pour immediately over cake, and spread evenly with a spatula. Cool completely.
