If I’m going to eat candy, I’d much rather make it myself than buy it at a store. That way, I know what’s in the food and it tastes a hundred times better! Of course, my kids love it too. Around Halloween, I enjoy pulling out the double boiler, melting some chocolate, whipping up a caramel and creating homemade treats.
A friend recently sent me a box of Yummy Earth lollipops. My girls were thrilled! They enjoyed the little GMO-free, soy-free, artificial dye-free certified organic pops. They do have a little bit of brown rice syrup, so were very much a treat since we still don’t consume grains. I’m thinking about passing them out for Halloween. My kids also want to try a bag of their jelly beans.
I also read Lisa’s post, “20 Ways to Do Halloween without Candy” and I plan to grab some glow sticks to add to the mix. What are some of your favorite healthier or non-candy ideas for Halloween?
