If you’re a parent to a food allergic child, what are your feelings about Halloween? Excitement? Anxiety? Sadness? Stress?
Or maybe a mixture of all those feelings. Sure, some parts of Halloween are exciting in spite of food allergies. Seeing your kiddos dressed up in super cute costumes is always fun. Getting together with friends and family is always fun.
But…there are the un-fun parts about Halloween as well. The fact that 99% of the candy your children receive isn’t safe for them and has to be whisked away as soon as they come home – that’s the opposite of fun. Of course, you may have already prepared for this scenario, and have a stockpile of safe treats or toys to trade for the unsafe candy.
Well, there’s something new and exciting that you can add to your stockpile of allergy friendly treats. Enjoy Life Baking Chocolate Snack Packs!
Mini bags of delicious chocolate chips that are free of the top 8 allergens (plus some more) – what could be better? These mini snack bags come in two varieties – the mini chocolate chips and the dark chocolate morsels. These delicious allergy friendly chocolate chips are made in a facility that’s nut free and free of many other allergens, too.
Just to make things even more fun, I created a little owl printable to wrap around these snack packs. You can download the printable right HERE. Simply cut them out and secure with a piece of tape.
These chocolate chip snack packs are perfect for Halloween of course, but are also great for packing in lunches, taking to the movies, and ideal for tucking into your purse for any kind of emergency chocolate situation you may have. :)
They’re also perfect for topping this homemade pumpkin ice cream.
This dairy free pumpkin ice cream is creamy, decadent and delicious. It’s lightly spiced and pairs perfectly with a sprinkling of chocolate chips. It’s a great treat to enjoy Halloween or any time!

How do you make sure your children feel included on Halloween? What special treats do you make at this time of year?
Looks delicious! What size ice cream maker did you use?
1.5 quart…I use this one: https://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-ICE-21-Quart-Frozen-Yogurt-Ice/dp/B003KYSLMW/ref=sr_1_4?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1478610644&sr=1-4&keywords=ice+cream+maker
Where or which brand you get for nutmeg and pure pumpkin puree?
I use Libby’s pure pumpkin and McCormick nutmeg. But if you have questions about allergen statements, you should call the companies. Hope that helps! :)
Pumpkin ice cream is my favorite treat this time of year! Yum! I love that your recipe is dairy free too. AND kudos to ELF for their snack packs, love it.
Yum! Pumpkin lovers are going to really like this recipe!

Yummy, that looks so good! I need to make some this weekend – my whole family can have this! We usually buy non-dairy ice cream every Friday as a treat but I should start making my own
If you try it, I hope you love it!
Is it possible to make this recipe without an ice cream maker?
I’m not sure! If you did, I think it would be quite hard, so you would have to let it partially thaw before it would be scoopable. Please let me know how it works if you try that.
