  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13” pan with cooking spray.
  • Add all cake ingredients to a large bowl and mix, according to package directions, until smooth, about 2 minutes. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature before topping.
  • In a small bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk and ¼ cup Cherry Coke.
  • In another small bowl, heat hot fudge until liquid, but not too hot. Stir in remaining ¼ cup of Cherry Coke.
  • Poke several holes in the top using the handle of a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk mixture evenly over the top, being sure to get it in the holes.
  • Do the same with the hot fudge mixture.
  • Spread cherry pie filling over the top of the cake. Spread Cool Whip evenly over cake, cover with plastic wrap and chill for several hours before serving.
  • Top with sprinkles before serving, if desired.



  • Diet cherry coke will also work
  • Use any kind of cool whip you prefer
  • This tastes better after it sits for at least 4 hours.
