This shooter is SO good!  It kind of reminds me of a Mudslide taste.  It’s not overly sweet, and it has the perfect “kick” to it!

And, the sprinkles add that extra special touch that makes this drink birthday-worthy!

If you can’t find the Cake Mate brand, Wilton makes Rainbow Nonpareils, which are the same thing.
