Every year I think about making cookies for Halloween treats, but I always worry that people will just throw them away. Would you let your child eat home made trick or treats if they were labeled with the address and ingredients?
... although the name, address and ingredients MIGHT help....you could always candidly ask the parents first if they'd let them eat it if you provide that- and have a back up treat for those who decline....I know only the little one's come with parents though...
I would be SO grateful to be able to accept homemade cookies as trick or treats, as I just loathe all that candy garbage that comes home, but, all the news stations in all the places I've lived for the past couple of decades has advised parents to forbid their children eating anything but individually wrapped candies. But what a wonderful world it would be if we could only go back to those days when homemade cookies came home in the trick or treat bags. I remember getting homemade popcorn balls, too! Little homemade brownies wrapped in saran wrap... oh, man, those were the days!! You're so sweet to think of giving of yourself that way, though.

One of the ladies on my street when I was growin up did carmel apples!!! I can't image how many she must have made every year. They were awesome.
We used to go trick or treating for hours while our parents stayed home and handed out candy. No one thought that school aged kids needed an adult to walk around the neighborhood. Gosh, those were the day!
