1 pkg (18 1/2 oz) German Chocolate cake mix
4 eggs

2 pkgs (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1 pkg (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

1 can (30 oz) cherry pie filling, drained.

Preheat oven to 300. Reserve 1/2 C of the dry cake mix.

Personal Notes:
I used to make this spectacular dessert for special occasions. Then I lost the recipe for 15 years or so, hidden behind another recipe in a plastic recipe cover.
I only found it as I was typing these recipes into the cookbook-creation tool. To my great delight, there it was, lurking behind my wonderful Trifle recipe. Oh frabjous day!

This is wonderful -- makes any occasion seem splendid and somewhat over-the-top -- which is my preferred way of entertaining.
