    Last tear we gave the kids a few small eggs then sent them to a kids Easter cupcake decorating class- it was a massive success- they loved it.

    How about gf/df cupcakes or cookies decorated to look like hot cross buns, bunnies, eggs? If you have a good recipe you all like at least you know it will turn out, and you can decorate them in easter themes to make them more exciting. Or a large cake in the shape of a bunny/bilby/egg?

    I can understand about not wanting to make them!! I'm so glad DDs having gluten again because it was so much more expensive and the recipes were fiddly as!!
    I'll check for them at coles when it's closer to it. DD has coeliac disease, so she has to be gluten free for life. At least we found out early so she is used to gf food because I know heaps of people who can't make the transition from wheat bread to gf bread.

    This year she is getting 2 books, a small craft set, a movie, 1 bunny chocolate (think it was 40g) and maybe a new outfit. I was also thinking of getting a fish. We have the accessories, so just need fish and some food for him.

    For others with kids who won't get chocolate, what do you do?

    Also what do you have in place of hot cross buns?
    Sounds like what your doing is great. This is ds2's first Easter. Ds1 can eat chocolate but we are quite strict on the sugar content of foods in general so opted not to buy large quantities of choc for Easter, he gets 1 small egg only and we buy him pajamas or something else he needs/wants. We always encourage family members to do the same but our requests are ignored and he ends up with ridiculous quantities of chocolate which gets thrown out and the mil thinks we are cruel for not giving him a lot of sweet foods.

    This thread has been great to get some ideas from. We are wheat, soy, nut and dairy free, with limited egg. So Easter will be pretty much a chocolate and hot cross bun free zone here. If it doesnt have dairy and/or wheat it usually has soy. . Time to think outside the box

    Soy would be hard, it's a lot easier now to be gfdf but soy seems to be in sooo many things. I've always done book, dvd, set of clothes, and maybe craft or games.

    You poor thing. DD grew out of her wheat and soy intolerance at 18 months thankfully, now it's just egg and dairy. I have a recipe for home made chocolate (I use oat milk) MSG me if you'd like it.

    Plamil chocolate use sunflower lecthin and are vegan, they even do a sugar free one. We love it, or just raw chocolate has NOTHING bad in it!

    Maybe one of the excellent cooking Hubbers could make them for you and send them up? Are they less available because of your location? I can look around for eggs as I'm in based in Sydney??
