In a medium size skillet warm 8-10 Candy Corn. Note, you don’t want them completely melted, just warm enough to work with. Once warm, place Candy Corn on a sheet of wax paper. Coating your fingertips with a little coconut oil, roll out thin slivers of Candy Corn. Working in sections, rim the martini glass.
