Chocolate cake

I wanted to share the recipe for the Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake I brought to Danielle's on Sunday.  I know a few of you had asked for the recipe.
 
 Cake:
 1 pkg devils food cake mix
 1 can 21oz cherry pie filling
 2 eggs
 1 tsp. almond extract
 
 Frosting:
 1c. sugar
 1/3c butter
 1/3c whole milk
 1c semi sweet chocolate chips (you can add more to make it really chocolaty- I measured mine out with a mounded top).
 
 heat oven to 350 degrees
 mix cake mix, pie filling, eggs and almond extract on low speed for 1 min.  Make sure all cake mix has been incorporated and then increase the speed to medium for another minute or 2.  Bake in 9x13 pan for 30-35 min (just until the cake springs)
 
 make the frosting using a saucepan on medium-low heat.  Add sugar, butter and milk and stir constantly until it boils.  As you stir, let it boil for a minute.  Then remove it from heat and add the chocolate chips and mix well.  Pour it over the cake and use a spreader to even out the frosting.  It will start to solidify after a bit so work kind of quickly.

THANKS Sara
