I've read a lot of "Allergy-Free" blogs and see that many are posting online stores that sell allergy-free Halloween treats. Well. I look at the price and think it's just not worth when you tack on shipping (and the fact that a child might not like it or eat it all). I get it's about providing fun treats for kids with food allergies and I greatly appreciate the effort and hope someday that we will just find these treats next to the bags of candy in the aisles full of dangerous candy. Maybe we'll get out own aisle someday. But for now, I choose to find what is available and safe to eat and work with.
All this week I will be sharing Halloween treat ideas that don't take a lot of time, are cost effective and lots of fun to eat. Hold on to your seats but many of the items I will share will be (big sigh) processed foods. Guess what I think it's okay in moderation, especially during the holidays.
Today's Fun Halloween Treat is:
Halloween Trail Mix
(You can use any variation of cereal, dried fruit, pretzels, etc. -- make it your own)
1/4 cup Cheerios
1/4 cup Kashi Heart to Heart Cereal
1/4 cup Kashi Honey Sunshine
1/4 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch (I sent my husband to the grocery store to get a General Mills deal and he brought this home for snacks)
1/2 cup Craisins
2 Tbsp Enjoy Life chocoalate chips
leftover Teddy Grahams (I think there were five left and a few arms and leg pieces)
2/3 cup Ghost Marshmallows
2. Store in zip lock bag or air tight container.
**My daughter told me that the Craisins were spiders and the teddy grahams were puppies (dressed in costumes I presume). It doesn't take much to turn something into something else. Plus when you're 3 years old everything is a great idea. **
