Cherry Crunch
1 can cherry pie filling 1 yellow cake mix
chopped pecans 1 stick of butter
In a 9x13x2 pan spread the cherry pie filling. Sprinkle and spread the cake mix evenly over the filling. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the cake mix then cut the butter into pieces and spread evenly over the cake mix and nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 30 mins. You want this to be a golden brown when done. You can omit nuts and it is still very delicious. You can also serve with whipped cream. You can serve this warm or completely cooled. Great recipe for the kids.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake
1 Duncan Hines Devils Food Cake Mix 1 pkg Toll house Chocolate chips
Mix the cake as directed on the box. You can bake this in a 9x13x2 or in 2  9in. cake pans or a bundt pan. When you have the cake mix ready stir in half of the bag of toll house chips. Pour into pan(s) and bake as directed. Use the rest of the toll house chips to make the icing. Just melt them in milk to a make a pourable  but somewhat thick mixture. When the cake is completely cooled pour the icing over the cake. Sounds super simple for something that tastes so great =) Milk is a MUST with a slice of this cake!
