Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake

This cake is so yummy and so easy, I'm not sure why I don't make it more often. Maybe it is because of the name. Although I've heard it called many different things, it is commonly referred to as "Better Than Sex Cake" which I think is the dumbest name ever. Who wants to tell their family or dinner guests that is what they made for dessert? Seriously. Is it just me or is that name totally dumb and trashy sounding? Call it what you will. The cake is yummy and here is the recipe:

Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake (the best alternative name I could come up with)
1 box devils food cake mix
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
6 oz caramel ice cream topping
1 8 oz container cool whip
2-3 Health candy bars crushed

1. Bake the cake according to package directions for 9x13 inch pan. Cool for 5 minutes and then poke holes all over the surface of the cake with the end of a wooden spoon.
2. In a saucepan, combine the sweetened condensed milk and the caramel topping. Heat over low heat, stirring until smooth. Pour mixture over warm cake.
3. Let the cake cool completely. Top with whipped cream and crushed heath bars. Garnish with a drizzle of caramel just before serving.

P.S. What do you call this cake?

This is my absolute favorite cake and we make it exactly the same way. I'll be having it in about a month...as this is the cake that I always have Jared make me for my birthday! I can't wait!
And yes, dumb silly name. We call it "Better than Anything" cake.
