Black Forest Dump Cake with Ice Cream


1 - 21 oz. can of cherry pie filling
1  - 16 oz. bag of frozen pitted sweet cherries thawed
1/2  - cup of sugar
1 -  box devils food cake mix
2 - sticks of butter sliced
1-  square of chocolate bark


Empty frozen cherries into a bowl and stir in the sugar, let the cherries thaw.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
In a 9 x 13 inch cake pan, spread the cherry pie filling evenly in the pan and then pour the thawed cherries, juice and all over top of the cherry pie filling.  Open the cake mix and sprinkle over the cherries lightly spread evenly over cherries and juice.  Do not mix into cherries!  Put all butter slices on top of dry cake mix.  The slices will be about ½ inch apart. Place pan in preheated oven and bake for 1 hour.  Serve warm with Ice cream.

To make the choc. curl shavings, I took 1 block of choc. bark and a vegetable peeler.

This is what the cake looks like as it comes out of the oven.
