Easy Black Forest Dessert

Deb Elliott


The original recipe called for canned pineapple as the fruit, a yellow cake mix, and walnuts instead of the almonds. But I like chocolate and cherries together and almonds go well with cherries.

Be sure to let this cool to set up after baking.

I also tried it with a brownie mix, and it was pretty good!
