Chocolate Cherry Valentine Cake

Tanya from this blog, was the winner of the Pampered Chef Cake pan give away and she has graciously agreed to share her recipe for her Chocolate Cherry Valentine Cake with us! She even sent us a picture!

Chocolate Love Cake

What you need:

-One chocolate cake mix
-One 16 oz. container of cool whip
-Two 21 oz. cans of cherry pie filling

What you do:

1. Make the cake as directed on the box. You can pour the cake into either two round pans or if you don’t have the round pans (but can’t wait to get them from a giveaway!) you can make it in a sheet cake and cute out the round circles.
2.Next layer cake, cool whip and then one can of cherries.

3. Repeat the layering until you end with the cherries on top.

4. I garnished my cake with shaved Hershey candy bars. Serve and then refrigerate the leftovers.

Cook Tips:

-You can replace the cherry pie filling with a fruit topping of choice or crushed candy bar such as Butterfingers (this is my favorite).

-I put this cake in the Pampered Chef trifle bowl. It makes for a great display and easier to transport. You can also place it on a decorative plate, it looks really pretty with the cherries flowing over the cake.

YUM! Thanks so much Tanya! I think my boys would love this cake!



  1. Thanks so much for the shot out. The cake was a huge hit at work today.

  2. Another great way to do this cake is to actually break the cake into pieces using the same bowl you have and then to pour cherry whiskey over top the cake just to soak in a tad bit. Add your cherry topping and your whip cream and it is a huge huge hit. For the big ppl that is!
