Chocolate Cherry Bars
Rich, fudge brownies stuffed with cherry flavor and topped with a homemade chocolate icing! They are super easy to make because they started with a boxed cake mix.
- 15.25 oz pkg Devils Food cake mix
- 21 oz can cherry pie fruit filling
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2 c. sugar
- 8 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1 1/4 c. chocolate chips
Grease and flour a 15" x 10" jelly roll pan. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl mix cake mix, cherry pie filling, almond extract and eggs together and completely combined. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into middle of brownies comes out clean.
As soon as you take the bars out of the oven prepare icing. In a saucepan boil sugar, butter and milk for 1 minute then add chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted. Spread on warm bars.
Let bars cool completely and icing harden before cutting.
How to Store Them
You can make these bars a day in advance - just make sure they're completely cooled before you wrap them with plastic wrap. They will keep well at room temperature for a few days.
