Now that Hunter is dairy and gluten free, allowing him to eat just whatever wasn't even an option. But this mama refused to give up the fun without a fight. And I must say that I rocked the Halloween fun this year and Hunter didn't end up eating one forbidden piece of candy. How did I do it? I'm glad you asked. I started the month of October off with researching gluten free Halloween recipes. Then I made some lists for the grocery store. Then I planned a Halloween feast. Leading up to the big feast, I created a couple special Halloween-themed desserts. Such as...
Candy Corn Parfaits: This particular parfait included fresh pineapple on the bottom, thawed organic peach slices, and a dairy/gluten free whipped topping from the freezer which we only had because the Captain found it on closeout for a dollar and knew it would make a special treat for our upcoming desserts. I topped the parfaits with a few chocolate chips and a couple grinds of this stuff.
On Halloween morning, all. three kids woke to buckets of Halloween treats. Yummy Earth lollipops and gummy bears, and some gluten free dairy free dark chocolate coconut bars that I found at Marshalls and they were amazing (Hunter even said they were better than any candy bar he'd ever had, including Kit Kat). We had a great Halloween and no one felt as if they were lacking in the treat department, despite regulations and restrictions.
