Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Pour pineapple with juice into prepared pan, spreading evenly to make the first layer. Spread cherry pie filling over the pineapple layer, then spread the cake mix over the cherry pie filling. Sprinkle the cake mix layer with pecans and mint chocolate chips, then distribute the sliced butter evenly over the top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

This recipe was great! I used milk chocolate chips on top instead of the mint and topped it with walnuts instead of pecans. I also used a whole stick of butter cut up on top. When I checked it after it had baked 40 minutes, I noticed that some of the cake mix was still dry and crumbly. I just put some pats of butter on those spots and baked it about 5 more minutes. I will definitely be making this wonderful dessert again!!


Wonderful taste but mine just didn't "set" properly. Even for a "mud" cake it stayed too loose. Maybe it was me?

YUMMY! I have had this before, only it was with a yellow cake mix and I liked it. But wow with the devils food made a huge difference. It was even better. I will be making this again. Thanks.
