Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake is moist, delicious, and a lovely idea for a Valentines dinner dessert… and MAYBE there’ll be enough left over to share a little with the kids?? ; )

K… and I also LOVE that there’s not any oil in the cake!  The Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake‘s glaze is another story but WOW it’s so good!!  (You will be in chocolate heaven)

    I wasn’t so sure when you told me had a can of cherry pie filling in it, but it was really yummy. The cherries really complimented the chocolate. And it was super moist.
