What You Need

1
pkg.  (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix
1
pkg.  (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
1
can  (21 oz.) cherry pie filling, drained
1/4
cup  Kirsch (cherry brandy)

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

PREPARE cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round cake layers, blending dry pudding mix into batter before pouring into prepared pans. Cool cakes in pans 15 min. Invert onto wire racks; gently remove pans. Cool cakes completely.

MIX cherry pie filling and kirsch. Reserve 1/2 cup each of the cherry mixture and COOL WHIP for garnish; spoon remaining cherry mixture onto 1 cake layer on plate. Cover with 1 cup of the remaining COOL WHIP and second cake layer.

SPREAD 1-1/2 cups of the remaining COOL WHIP onto top and side of cake. Top with dollops of the remaining COOL WHIP. Garnish with reserved cherry mixture and grated chocolate. Keep refrigerated.
