Think Valentine’s Day – think chocolate! However, for the allergy population, there are additional thoughts and concerns about food safety. The allergy sensitive population needs to know that the treats for Valentine’s Day will be peanut free, egg free, milk free, etc., as needed. These tasty treats can be enjoyed at home or brought to other events to ensure that allergy concerns are zapped!
Apart from store-bought items that may be allergy-free, home creations with allergy-free ingredients can provide safe, worry-free and delicious treats to enjoy! Here are Two Fantastic Valentine Treats to Enjoy!
Get your kids to help make these for added fun!
