Checking In and Halloween Question

I've got 2 new recipes two post about later tonight. Hopefully, I'll have cooked up my Halloween cookies by then, so you will have 3 photos to look at.

There is candy all around the office today. I guess they have designated today as a day where every one can bring their kids in and they can trick or treat around to certain cubes that have candy. This is my first year as a vegan on Halloween. I supposed the only thing I really miss is peanut butter cups. I can make some pb squares if I get desperate.

How do you all handle trick or treaters on Halloween? Do you get vegan treats like pretzels or oreos to give out? Just curious as I have not dealt with this issue before and have been wrestling with buying regular Halloween candy or getting some other stuff.

Well, i think Jody more than answered your question, lol! :-)
Its a real non-issue for me cos we don't celebrate Halloween in Aus - a few attempts have been made at getting it going, mainly by companies with profit in mind, but it hasn't happened.
A while ago, Miriam (knocked up vegan) made peanut butter cups and I think the recipe is oin fatfreevegan.com
