Cherry pie filling is covered with chocolate cake mix and topped with butter, all 'dumped' in one pan, and baked together for a chocolate-cherry treat.
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 12-inch oven-safe skillet. (You could also use a 9x9-inch or 9x13-inch baking dish.)
In the prepared skillet or baking dish, add the cherry pie filling and the almond extract. Mix together and spread it evenly over the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle the cake mix over the top, being careful to cover all of the pie filling.
