Cherry Delight-Crock Pot Dessert



Cherry Delight


Ingredients

  • 1-large can of Cherry pie filling
  • 1-Box yellow cake mix
  • 1-Stick of butter-melted
  • Walnuts-Optional

Directions

  • Dump the pie filling in the bottom of the crock pot. Next mix together the butter and cake mix, crumble over top of pie filling. Top with walnuts (if desired). Cook on Low for 3-4 hours. 


Amy's Notes:

Personally I would not add the nuts next time, but that is all personal preference. I also served this with vanilla ice cream. I also think it would taste great if you sprinkle some cinnamon on before cooking. I think you could also substitute the cherry pie filling for whatever fruit filling you prefer, Peaches, blueberry, apple etc.
