While I was browsing their web site, I was happy to find some great recipes! The one that caught my eye was Chocolate Cherry Cola Cake. It looked yummy!

1 jar (10 oz.) Clover Valley® maraschino cherries, drained, 1/4 cup liquid reserved

1 box devil's food cake mix

1 cup cherry cola carbonated beverage

1/2 cup Clover Valley® vegetable oil

3 eggs

1 container (12 oz.) whipped white frosting

1 cup marshmallow crème
24 maraschino cherries with stems, well drained, if desired

Prep Time: 30 Min.

Start to Finish: 2 Hr 15 min.

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour. Chop cherries; set aside.

2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, cola beverage, oil, eggs and 1/4 cup reserved cherry liquid with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed beat 2 minutes. Stir in chopped cherries. Pour into pan.

3. Bake 35 to 43 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

4. In small bowl, mix frosting and marshmallow créme until smooth. Frost cake. Top each piece with 2 cherries.

Special Touch: For chocolate-dipped cherries, melt 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening in microwave; stir. Dip well-drained cherries with stems into chocolate; refrigerate to set.
