I haven't been able to convert hubby to the dessert drinks he is more of a candy corn vodka or candy corn jello shot kind of person.

Now the recipe calls for vanilla frosting or corn syrup on the rim of the glasses, and I highly recommend the vanilla frosting it just doesn't taste the same with the corn syrup. The corn syrup is an ok substitute if you are looking to save on the calories but trust me it just isn't the same.
