Peanut Free Easter Candy

With Mister’s peanut allergy, peanut free symbolwe have to be very careful about what candy we allow him to have.  Unfortunately, I was unable to find a single chocolate bunny that wasn’t made on shared equipment this year.  I don’t know why it came as a surprise to me, as I’ve never been able to find one before.  As prevalent as nut allergies have become, though, I thought perhaps one would hop out at me.

Typically, I would just put some Smarties and Jelly Belly Jelly Beans in his basket (both are guaranteed peanut free), and not think twice about it.  That is what I have done in years past.   This year, however, is the first year that Mister has cared whether or not his basket included a chocolate bunny.

We had been grocery shopping when, of course, all those chocolate bunnies called to him from eye level.  I cautioned him not to touch them and proceeded to pick up box after box.  Not. One. Peanut. Free. Bunny.  He was just devastated when I told him that they were all made on shared equipment.

So, I did what any other rational mother of a child with a nut allergy would do…

chocolate bunny lollipop

I made my own.  I had candy molds stashed away (albeit, I had never used them… shame shame), so I dug through them and one was a bunny lollipop mold.  SCORE.

I melted peanut free chocolate in my Wilton Chocolate Pro and poured up some lollipops.

I cannot wait to see his face when he sees a chocolate bunny in his basket!

  13. Try this store: http://www.naturalcandystore.com/category/peanut-free-candy It’s my go-to place for vegan candy and they cater to other special diets. I checked a few from their peanut-free section and they were made on clean machines.

    But yours look great, too! 🙂

  14. You did an awesome job! I must say, I’m glad my son doesn’t have a peanut allergy. But it’s good that there are peanut-free options out there.
