My son's class (in the United States) has a new pa student. We sometimes have class parties (per the teacher) and ask for donations from parents. I would like to be able to send as specific as list as possible, especially about candies (not the manufacturer but the specific candy name), home to the families. We don't want to make it a big deal on the day; telling him he has to stay away from something and would rather not leave the label reading up to parents.

Swedish Fish
Mike and Ike
Tootsie roll lollipops as well as any other tootsie roll products like:

Thank you for the additional info. I don't know how it makes the pa/tna parents feel but I know it sure makes me feel A LOT better.

Watch out for Hershey Kisses! I read in another thread that while the regular plain Hershey Kisses are safe, the "holiday" plain kisses can be made from the same batch of chocolate as the ones with nuts.
Hershey is good with labels, so if the kisses "may" contain nuts the package will say so, but you do have to check.

[b]Lifesaver[/b] products (gummies, jellies, etc) are fine too. As for kisses, Hershey always puts a warning on if there is a risk - the holiday kisses IUhave seen this year are all fine - no warning (but always good to check labels anyway) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

This pure food recipe is pure joy. It is loaded with the sensational tastes and benefits of raw chocolate and coconut. Note that this dessert is a powerful energy source. If you wish to go to bed early, you might want to be sure to eat them before 5pm.
Ingredients:
2.5 cups organic, raw, dehydrated, large coconut flakes
1.5 cups organic, raw cacao/chocolate powder
1 cup of raw agave nectar
1/3 cups of organic, raw coconut oil or coconut spread/butter
2 tsp organic, raw vanilla powder
1/4 tsp of ground sea salt
Preparation:
If coconut oil or spread is hard, place in a dehydrator at 115°F until soft.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Place a non-stick dehydrator sheet on a dehydrator rack.
Using your hands or a spoon, make small macaroon balls (1.5" diameter) and place on non-stick dehydrator sheet.
Put rack with macaroons in dehydrator.
Dehydrate with thermostat at 115°F until desired dryness (12-24 hours).
Keith,
sour candy
