Peanut Free Easter Candy

Once upon a time, my oldest child was allergic to peanuts.  He’s since been healed from that allergy, but we learned the hard way that we had to be very careful about what candy we allowed him to have.  Some of our favorite candies were off limits in our house, but we found several others to enjoy. These are some of the nut free candies that we came to love.20 Nut Free Easter Candies at thatbaldchick.com

One year, at Easter time, I was unable to find a single chocolate bunny.  I was a bit perplexed at first, because nut allergies had become pretty prevalent and I thought surely a peanut free chocolate bunny would hop out at me.  None did.  In years prior, I’d just put some Smarties and Jelly Belly Jelly Beans in his basket and didn’t think twice about it.  That year, tho, he actually cared whether or not his basket included a chocolate bunny.  We’d been grocery shopping, and of course all those bunnies called to him from eye level.  I’d had to caution him not to touch them and then I examined ever brand.  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 rational mother of a nut-allergy kiddo would do when her child says  “I don’t get a bunny”  and had those puppy dog eyes.

I bought the supplies and made my own.  LOL

You should have seen his face on Easter morning when he got up and found a chocolate bunny in his basket.

It was absolutely priceless.

He has since passed his peanut challenge, and actually has to eat something with peanuts in it every week, but I remain very conscious of nut allergies and how hard it is to find allergy safe candy! Please be sure to read all candy packaging labels prior to giving to your child!

  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.
