I saw the original recipe on Taste of Home’s email newsletter but I didn’t think the dried cherries would go over very well. If you want to use those, just use ½ a Cup and soak them in the ½ cup cola instead of the cherry chips and you’ll be fine. This is “crocked” because it uses Rum in the icing. It was the easiest cake I ever made in my entire life! Moist, warm, gooey, chocolate, cherry, cola goodness!! Try it, you will like it!
