Slow Cooker Cherry Dump Dessert


Slow Cooker Cherry Dump Dessert

2 (21 ounce) cans cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
2/3 cup butter, melted

Spray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray.  Pour the cherry pie filling in the bottom of slow cooker.  Sprinkle the dry cake mix over cherries.  Drizzle butter over top.  Cover.  Cook on high 3 1/2 to 4 hours.  Serve with ice cream.


This is a great dessert for the 4th of July.   Serve the bright red cherries and creamy vanilla ice cream on a blue plate, and you have all the colors of our flag.  You make this dessert in the slow cooker, so you don't have to worry about heating up your kitchen.  It is a perfect recipe to have your kids make all by themselves!

  1. This sounds fantastic and so easy, problem for me is getting the cherry pie filling. Wonder what would happen if I use some of my frozen cherries? Diane

  3. Diane, make your own pie filling using the frozen cherries. I would be delicious!

    JeriLyn, I do the same thing with the pears. I guess great minds think a like. LOL! Every time I use cherry pie filling I think of Dave. That man loved cherry pies! I still miss him!

  12. My husbands family makes something similar for basically every family get together! But they always bake it in the oven. I guess I will just have to make both and try them side by side. The ultimate dumb cake contest! ;)

  19. I guess my crock pot needs to be replaced. Made the peach cobbler version and all the cake mix burned. The middle was tasty though.
