Parents and kids know that navigating Halloween with a peanut and tree nut allergy is no easy task. While you can find plenty of nut-free candy in stores, the easiest way to control what treats end up in trick-or-treat baskets is to make them yourself. In our ghoulishly delightful recipe collection, we’ll show you how to fill your home with the heavenly aroma of fall ingredients, sans the nuts. We’ve also included clever ingredient swaps, such substituting sunflower seed butter for nut butters, or pumpkinseeds in place of chopped nuts. When shopping for ingredients, always check package labels before you purchase any ingredients. The U.S. Food Allergy Labeling and Customer Protection Act (FALCPA) requires any major food allergens (milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat and soy) to be listed on all packaged food labels, whether in the ingredient list or in an accompanying statement.
