Chocolate Cherry Cobbler

"This is my 'dessert version' of chocolate-covered cherries," says Marilou Robinson of Portland, Oregon. "Our family loves it, and the preparation's quick using a boxed cake mix."

    Wonderful! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I would stick to the ingredients on the box for the cake and then pour on top of cherries and spread; otherwise, too stiff to spread. I made it for my birthday and it was gone in 3 days! Just me and sis! Great w/Rocky Road Ice Cream!
