Halloween goodies
Not everyone likes to wear a costume for Halloween but just about everyone enjoys a good Halloween treat. Here are some recipes to try to treat yourself or others you know with food sensitivities/food allergies.

Chocolate crunch cups


•1 cup chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life) or broken-up chocolate. Or make your own by melting 1 cup coconut oil and mix with 3 T. cocoa powder and sweetener of your choice.

•1/2 cup to 1 cup rice crispy cereal

•optional 2 tsp oil if using chocolate chips

•sunflower seed butter or allergy-friendly substitute

•add-ins such as sunflower seeds, raisins, coconut flakes (or ideas of your own)


Start by carefully melting the chocolate. Stir in the oil because it will make the melted chocolate chips much smoother. Stir some nut butter in with the chocolate now. Stir everything together with the rice crispies. Smooth into a lined muffin tin or mini muffin tin, OR use a mini cookie scoop and place on a parchment-lined plate. Refrigerate or freeze to set. Top with more seed/nut butter, if desired. Store leftovers in the fridge.
