My daughter is 10 yrs old and I have had the roughest time finding candy during the Halloween season that is safe for her to eat. She is severely allergic to all nuts/nut oils. if anyone has any recipes or knows of some candy out for retail could you let me know. Thank you

  • they said peanut and tree nut free I'm not sure about the oils I would hope that they wouldn't contain the nut oils if they put them on a list like that.

  • If it's severe I'm guessing you avoid food with a "made in shared facility" warning. You can buy ELF chocolate chips, chocolate molds and colored foils and make your own bars.

  • yes actually we have to because of the nut oils that could possibly be transferred in a made in shared facility. only problem with making own chocolate is that I've never seen that brand before and the brands that are available here share facilities. but thank you for the advice i'm going to look for that brand. hopefully i'll find it somewhere.
