Now I have a delicious treat to share with you.  I call it Cherry delight.  

It all began when I found crock pot cherry cobbler recipe at Budget Savvy Diva.   I read through the recipe, shared it with my Mom and then couldn't wait to make it.  After purchasing the ingredients I went to town to make it without rereading the directions.  OOPS!

 Here's what I did. I added cherry pie filling to the crock pot.  Then I dumped my cake mix right on top.  Then I said "wait a minute something just is not right,." Uh OH.  So , I scooped as much of it back out without getting the cherries as possible. 

So, then I headed to the recipe at Budget Savvy Diva.  Reread and thought OK got it. Easy.

Sadly, I messed up again or I think I did because my mix didn't look a thing like the one showed there. 

Here's what I did.  I melted my butter, mixed my vanilla and cake mix together.  OK from the directions I should have had a crumbly dough mix.  I had cake batter.  From here I thought what the heck I'm going to give it a try anyway. I dumped the cake mix right on top of the cherry pie filling and kind of swirled it around a bit.  Put it on low for 4 hours.

I ended up with a kind of ooey gooey cake and it was AWESOME Yummy!  My pictures do not do it justice because they are after I put it in the refrigerator.  Of course it was not complete until we added a big spoon of Cool Whip.  Cool Whip makes anything Yummy right?


I used the entire cake mix and the entire can of cherry pie filling.
This is the first dessert I ever made in the crock pot.  I'm excited to try more now.


You can decide whether to make it like a cake mix or make it crumbly. I know I will remake it my way again, but I want to try out the other also.

You can of course use any kind of pie filling. You can totally play with this one.
