During Hanukkah season, it can often be difficult to find nut free Hanukkah treats. I put together this list, which should help you whether you’re searching for yourself, your family, or your friends. Here are some options I hope you enjoy!
This vanilla flavored Hanukkah House Decorating Kit by Manischewitz comes with everything you’ll need to make an edible cookie house. It won the best nut free house kit contest by a landslide. And because it’s manufactured by Manischewitz, you know it’s coming from a leading brand of Kosher products.
This was the only kit from the list that I felt was actually dedicated to Hanukkah. There are a few other plain kits that you could turn into a Hanukkah house, but this is the only one that I found to have specific details dedicated to celebrating the season. It comes with four colors of frosting: white, navy blue, light blue, and yellow.
It also comes with a few extra toys like a Hanukah Dreidel Spinner, dark chocolate gelt coins, and five plastic dreidels. All the decorations you see in the picture are included in the kit so that means blue and white sprinkles, mini beads, sugar decorations and a six point star or two. It also includes instructions on how to assemble the cookie house base. You can replicate the design used in the photo on the box, or you can decorate the cookie base to create your own design for a Hanukkah House.
I like the idea of making this with the family. It creates a fun bonding activity. And gives kids something to do with their cousins or their friends. (Certified Nut Free & Certified Kosher)

Runner-Up: Nut Free Hanukkah Lollypop
This Hanukkah lollipop is made by Amanda’s Own Confections. It’s dairy free, nut free, peanut free, gluten free, wheat free, soy free, egg free, corn free, sesame free, mustard free, shellfish free, crustacean free, and vegan. It would be a great lollipop to share with friends since it’s free from all of the top eight allergens. It says Happy Hanukkah in chocolate on a lollipop stick, tied and decorated with a white satin bow.
The chocolate company was started by Amanda, a mother of a daughter with a life threatening allergy to dairy and egg products. Because dairy is in so many chocolates, Amanda decided to turn to making their own cookies. Then she started making chocolate that was free from the top 14 food allergens. Before she knew it she was sharing it with friends, and then it developed into a food company. All of the raw ingredients Amanda’s Own Confections uses are Kosher certified, but the facility has not yet been Kosher Certified as it is still in the certification process. See Amanda’s Own Made in a Dedicated Facility page for information regarding their commitment to allergy-safe practices.
