How to Make Crockpot Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake
Can I use other fruit if I don’t like cherries?
If you don’t like cherries, you can definitely use another canned fruit filling as long as you think it would pair nicely with the chocolate cake mix. Strawberries might be another fun option to try in place of the cherries.
How do I serve Crockpot Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake?
We recommend serving it with ice cream, but you could also do something fun like adding sprinkles and whipped cream to turn it into a gooey and delicious ice cream sundae recipe. Nothing is better than a chocolate cherry lava cake recipe with delicious ice cream on top!
Can I use fresh cherries?
You could absolutely try this recipe out with fresh cherries, but I would look into how to make homemade cherry pie filling first and then use that recipe for the base of this chocolate cherry dump cake.

- Once melted, pour icing over the cake. It makes a lot of icing, so feel free to save some of it for serving.
