1 Devils Food Cake Mix
1 jar Maraschino cherries drained and chopped coarsely
1 8 oz pkg. of cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 pkg. of 12 oz bag miniature chocolate chips.

1 12 oz bag chocolate chips
3/4 cup sour cream


Mix cake according to directions only adding 1 additional egg. Pour into two greased and floured cake pans.

Mix the cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth and then add chips and cherries. Drop in tspfuls across the cake batter distributing evenly--DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SMOOTH.

Bake until set about 40 min or until cake tester comes out clean. Once cool, frost the cake.

Melt chocolate chips in microwave just until melted according to package directions. Stir until smooth. Add sour cream and mix well.

Mixture will have chemical reaction that will cause it to become a beautiful dark color and get very glossy.

Frost/ice rather quickly as this icing will set up but never loses the wonderful smooth texture.
