You'll love our version of this popular German dessert! Our Black Forest "Quickie" calls for some of our favorite shortcuts, including devil's food cake mix, cherry pie filling, and vanilla pudding mix. The great thing is, that even though we start with shortcuts, we end up with a homemade-tasting cake that's really impressive!

- 1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling

- 2 cups sour cream
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 (1.55-ounce) chocolate candy bar, shaved
- 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 15 fresh black cherries, with stems
What to Do
