pumpkin maple gooey cake

i found a pumpkin cake that was similar to my gooey cakes that i swoon over.  i'll eat an entire gooey cake myself if left to my own devices.  thankfully that's never happened though, because everyone else seems to be just as crazy about these amazingly gooey and delicious desserts.  want to check out the other gooey cakes - try here, here, or here.  yeah, variations of the gooey cake are endless.  i have to say this is one of the best yet.  i've had four pieces so far (writing this is making me hungry for number five).
you need:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 can pumpkin
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tub cool whip
1/2 bag heath bits
maple agave nectar (or maple syrup)
pumpkin pie spice

preheat oven to 350.  mix the cake mix with the pumpkin & 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (nothing else).  place in greased 9x13 baking dish.  bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.  use the end of a chopstick or wooden spoon and poke holes all over the cake.  pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake and refrigerate for 30 minutes.  once it's cool top with cool whip and heath bits.  sprinkle with more pumpkin pie spice and drizzle with maple agave nectar.  if you can wait, the longer this sits the better.  but don't worry, if you can't wait, it's still to die for.  (and for the record, i did not wait.)
