This cake is simply delicious and way over the top for decadence. Made specially for Valentine's Day and your favorite Sweetheart, you'll only do this about once a year, so go ahead and treat you both. For this one day, we will not count calories.
Mix chopped cherries into the cake batter along with the cherry juice mixed with water to equal amount called for in directions on box.
Bake cake in a greased and floured 13x9x2 inch pan. Bake cake as directed on box, but be sure to test for doneness. After baking, do not remove cake from pan.
When the cake has cooled, make holes in the entire top of the cake using a large fork or the handle of a wooden spoon. Pour (one at a time) fudge, butterscotch, and condensed milk over the top of the cake and let each flavor soak in before adding the next. Crush 3 of the Heath bars and sprinkle on the top. Frost the cake with the whipped topping and crush the 3 remaining Heath bars to sprinkle over the top.

Source: The cake is a mixture of two recipes. One is a Creole Valentine cake which has the maraschino cherries in it, and a chocolate boxed cake made on the order of a Red Velvet Cake. Then somewhere I saw a cake recipe using the ice-cream toppings, and I just scrambled them all together and came up with this idea, tried it, and we all loved it. It is really rich and we don't want it all that often, so now we only make it for Valentine's Day, and call it our Sweetheart Cake.
