BAck in 2012, we went to our friends’ house, did the Zombie Walk, and then trick or treated. Why success? Simple:
- Zoe wore her entire costume almost the whole time.
- She only took her wings off the last 15 or so minutes of trick or treat time.
- The girls did not cheat much.
- Zoe only had 2 bites of pretzels and one bite of milk chocolate…and YES, there was “behavior” the next day. So we went and got some gluten-remover from the health store. So far, we’re ok.
Here is my fairy angel:
And my princess:
In order to avoid an all-candy-frontal assault by my kids, I made a bunny graveyard. Actually, I tried to make super sweet chocolate cookies, and ENDED UP with a bunny graveyard:
Recipe: Gluten, Dairy, Soy and Corn Free Halloween Graveyard Candy Cake
Adapted from Chewy Chocolate Cookies in the “Special Diets for Special Kids, Vol. 1 and 2” cookbook, but it came out nearly like candy
- 1 package Pamela’s Gluten Free NonDairy Dark Chocolate Frosting Mix
- 1.5 cups of Wholesome Sweetener Organic Powdered Sugar (corn free)
- 3 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour. I made this batch with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Garbanzo Flour
- 1 box Annie’s Berry Patch Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks
- Surf Sweets Gummies and Worms
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and use coconut oil to grease a glass pan. Mix all the ingredients together and bake in bake in the pan for around 45 minutes to get get a crunchy top. Remove from oven and let cool. Cover liberally in bears, bunnies, and worms.
These are REALLY sweet, a cross between cookies and candy, and 2 other adults said they were good. They almost did the trick…my kids at least were not jonesing for candy all night after a portion of this treat.
