Blue Plan (Freestyle) SmartPoints® value 7*

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 2 1/2 hours

Ingredients:

3 cups frozen pitted dark sweet cherries

2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand that’s about twice as sweet as sugar)

1 tbsp. cornstarch

2 tbsp. whipped butter

1 3/4 cups (about 1/2 box) devil’s food cake mix, or HG Alternative below

1/3 cup canned pure pumpkin

Directions:

In a slow cooker sprayed with nonstick spray (a 4-qt. slow cooker is best), combine cherries, sweetener, and cornstarch. Mix well.

Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 10 seconds, or until softened.

In a medium-large bowl, combine cake mix, pumpkin, and softened butter. Stir until crumbly and uniform. (Batter will be thick.)

Transfer cake batter to the slow cooker, and evenly cover cherries. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours, or until cherry mixture has thickened and cake batter is fully cooked.

Enjoy hot, warm, or chilled.
