Dutch Oven Cherry Chocolate Magic

So, we got rained out on our last camping trip and we didn't get a chance to make this Dutch oven recipe. We decided to do it on our deck ... placing the oven and briquettes in the BBQ. Sounds little nuts but it worked out great.

1 chocolate cake mix; prepared as directed
1 can cherry pie filling
3 T. sugar
1 brick cream cheese (8 oz.)
1 t. vanilla

Pour prepared cake batter onto a pie tin in a 10" Dutch oven. Spoon cherry pie filling over cake batter. In a small mixing bowl cream together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and drop on top.

Replace lid. Bake with 8 briquettes under the oven and 12 briquettes on the lid for about 50 minutes or until cake is springy and done.

And like magic, the goodies you put on top of the cake, magically become a part of the centre of the cake. Magic.
