Chocolate Cherry Bars

This great recipe was a Pilsbury Bake Off winner in 1974. It tastes a lot like a Black Forest cake but easier to prepare and a little richer thanks to the chocolate frosting.


Chocolate Cherry Bars


1 (18.25-oz.) pkg. Pillsbury® Moist Supreme® Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 (21-oz.) can cherry pie filling
1 teaspoon almond extract
3 eggs, beaten

Frosting
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
5 tablespoons butter
1 (6-oz.) pkg. (1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips


1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 15x10x1-inch baking pan or 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, combine all cake bar ingredients; stir until well blended. Pour into greased and floured pan.

2. Bake at 350°F. until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. For 15x10x1-inch pan, bake 20 to 30 minutes; for 13x9-inch pan, bake 25 to 35 minutes.

3. In small saucepan, combine sugar, milk and margarine. Bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Pour and spread over warm bars. Cool 1 1/4 hours or until completely cooled. Cut into bars.
