  • 16 oz jar maraschino cherries (drained), no pits or stems and cut in half.
  • Can of whipped Cream Topping

What to do:

  1. Make the cake according to the box directions.  Let cool.
  2. In a small sauce pan melt the butter on medium heat.  Stir in brown sugar slowly.  Cook until the mixture comes to a boil.  Stir in pineapple and cherries, cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Drain any excess liquid.
  4. Once the cake is cooled, cut it into bite size pieces.
