Anyone have any recipes for treats that are able to get by Mid East customs for US Soldiers?

Published by at 2:27 am under Deserts

I was wondering if anyone has any good recipes for baked goodies that I can send to the Middle East? Recipes CANNOT have spices, pork or byproducts, molasses, brown sugar or butter in them. My 5 year old is doing a service project and we decided to send guys who are courageously serving our country overseas baked treats for CHristmas, but I am having a hard time coming up with any recipes that will be able to get through customs, not spoil and survive the desert heat. Any suggestions anyone? Have any recipes or even know where I could look to get some?

I send my friends who are over in the dessert rice crispy treats and chocolate chip cookies. We've never had an issue with the brown sugar/butter thing. Ive never even heard of that. But I wouldnt doubt it. I cut and individually plastic wrap the rice crispy treats so they stay softer longer and toss the cookies in a plastic baggie. I mail everything priority mail so it takes about 2-3 weeks to get there. According to my friends the goodies are still fresh and taste great!

    I just returned from Iraq, and we were able to have things with those items in them. (Molasses, Brown Sugar etc..). In fact, I had chocolate chip cookies sent to me. There isnt much heat in Iraq now. I returned home last week and it was 45 degrees in Baghdad. It is their winter, just like the USA. The only difference, is they get more rain than snow.

    Hope this helps.
