What a Crock: Cherry Chocolate Dessert

What a Crock: Cherry Chocolate Dessert

Cherry Chocolate Dessert--a pretty vague name, but I was intrigued. This recipe consists of only three ingredients, making it a high-risk venture. The reviews were solid, and I was under a time crunch, so I gave it a whirl.

The rundown A box of chocolate cake mix, a stick of butter, and a can of cherry filling--that's it!

The taste If you enjoy the taste of slightly baked brownie batter, this recipe is for you. It's a complete train wreck for the rest of us. The end product was thick, rich, dense, and way too sweet for my liking. But again, there is a segment that enjoys this sort of thing. I prettied the presentation up with a little cool whip.

The ease Just melt the butter and add to the cake mix. Spoon the cherry filling into the crock pot and top with the butter/cake mix. Set on LOW for three hours. This is a perfect recipe for inexperienced cooks who are looking to impress a significant other with a romantic meal. It looks the part, says "you're special," and is good for a bite or two. Take your glasses over to the couch and keep the party rolling.

The tip If romance isn't your thing, I guess this would also work well for a small kids' party. It yields a good amount, and a little goes a long way.
