Today I’m sharing how my family organizes our Halloween candy over at Ask Anna (come visit me there). Several years ago we had friends with children who had peanut allergies. I learned how complicated and disappointing Halloween can be for children with peanut allergies. It also occurred to me that much of the candy I have been handing out wasn’t appropriate for young toddlers out trick or treating. I now make sure that I include candy alternatives to hand out on Halloween and these adorable peanut free Halloween treats are a favorite.
These little jack o’lanterns are easy enough to make with younger kiddos.
