Hi Katie's Mom,
Hope you are well. Do you ever make homemade snacks for the kids as the mother of the child with pa? Or do you just always use store bought snacks to try to set an example?
Stay Safe,
Rhonda

I have found some safe Halloween candy at Safeway. They are just born (the easter peeps people) brand. They are orange halloween marshmellow pumpkins. They look cool, but don't taste like too much in my opinion. They are about 1 inch and a good size for decorating a safe cupcake.

Hi Classmom: thanks again for posting here. I just wanted to add that I consider Tootsie Roll products (in U.S.) to be safe (although check with the mother of the child who has PA first). They make a good variety of candy,etc.

Rhonda...
I try to buy snacks whenever possible, one - to set the example, and two - I really don't like baking. But when asked, I do bake for the class.

Please give me your response to what I allow my children to have: We have never had any problems with Milk Duds, Sixlets, or Whoppers.(other brands of malt balls do contain peanuts) None of these have a "peanut" warning on the label. These 3 seem to get out of stock early. If I wait to late, they are picked over. They are the only chocolate candies I can find that are, in my experience SAFE. (without having to special order) Do you guys allow your pa children to eat them?

There was a really cool (in a yuccky way) custard cup with vanilla pudding, grapes and gummy worms in one of the ladies mags Halloween issue. It also had icing eyeballs to look really gross - great for a class party if the kids are older...

Thanks Chicago. I'll have to see if I can find that one. Sounds like something the kids would enjoy. The grosser the better you know!

Just looked it up - it is in Parents mag. (I am in the US - maybe Canada gets different content or doesn't get Parents??)The October 2001 issue. They are called "Green Eyed Pies". If you can't find the mag or the recipe via the Parents website, let me know.
Other yucky nut free ideas are the "Rotten Apple Punch" and the Hairy Daddy Longlegs Cupcakes in Disney's Family Fun mag.
Have a great party!
