It’s almost time for Halloween which is enough to make those of us with food allergy kids cringe. At first, Halloween was a holiday I dreaded but, thanks to allergy friendly candy like Smarties, Halloween has become a family favorite. Every single year we pass out ‘safe candy’ which always includes Smarties. Our school also has parties for our kiddos which means I usually bring an allergy friendly treat to hand out too.
I thought I would get creative this year and incorporate Smarties into our Halloween party treats. Recently, I found Birthday Cake Popcorn and I fell in love. The problem? It’s not necessarily allergy friendly. I decided I would take that oh-so-amazing recipe and make it work for my kiddos and I went a step further and added Smarties.
1 Bag of “safe” Popcorn
Dairy Free Magic Shell (1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips & 1 1/2 TBS Coconut Oil, simply melt & stir.)
Cake Mix (I used a box allergy-friendly mix)
1 Cup of Smarties
Directions: Pop the popcorn and spread it evenly on a cookie sheet to remove any less than perfect pieces or kernels.
Add 4 teaspoons of cake mix and mix together in a bowl. Then, pour the homemade Magic Shell over the popcorn and add sprinkles and Smarties.
Place the popcorn mix into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. The Magic Shell will harden, you can then break it apart in pieces and place it into cupcake holders for extra bits of cuteness. Perfect for a class party!
Congrats! You’ve just made an amazing allergy friendly snack and the cupcake holders are the perfect portion size for kiddos. I love the look of the chocolate especially for Halloween. Next time, I’m going to add even more chocolate…because you can never have enough!
