Easy Black Forest Cake

On the Menu Today~
Easy Black Forest Cake~

I found this fantastic and easy recipe in:
Fast Fixes with Mixes Cookbook from Taste of Home.
It became a fast, family favorite!
All you need are 6 ingredients...and
you'll have a dessert everyone will love!

During baking,
the marshmallows and cherry pie filling trade places.
The cherry pie filling sinks to the bottom and
the marshmallows rise to the top.
The marshmallows melt and become slightly toasted.
You can "frost" the cooled cake with whipped topping or
serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
