Yes!

Here's mine:
Black Forest1 box BC chocolate fudge cake mix     
3/4 c flour  
1/4 c cocoa powder    
1 c sugar      
1/2 t salt      
1 pkg chocolate instant pudding
2 6 oz containers cherry yogurt      
1 c melted cherry ice-cream (or vanilla creamer)
1/4 c brewed, cooled, coffee
3 eggs
2 T oil
1 dram LoRann cherry flavor oil
2 t Nielsen Massey chocolate extract
1 c chopped maraschino cherries, if desired
*Optional - 1/2 c mini cherry chips (KingArthurFlour.com has them)
* plus 1/2 c mini-chocolate chips

Blend everything until well mixed; bake at 325 according to pan size.

Filling
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 c chocolate chips, melted and cooled slightly
1 dram LoRann cherry (or 2 t other cherry extract)
½ c cherry jam
2 c Bettercreme mixed with cheesecake pudding (or Cool Whip)

Cream the cream cheese; blend in the melted chocolate well. Add flavoring and jam. Fold in whipped cream. (I just beat mine in).

I just looked at the previous recipe link to JellO...
I just experimented with a cherry cake yesterday using a recipe that called for JellO and it was horrible! Weird texture and overly sweet.
