This #Treats4All Adventure is brought to you by #CollectiveBias Inc. and it’s advertiser. All opinions are that of James Zahn, aka The Rock Father.
“Which house will have the best #Treats4All this year?” Well, Rock Father HQ is looking pretty good right about now. In fact, it’s become sort of a tradition here to break out the treats just for our family for a little pre-Halloween cheer, and that was the case this weekend as we got our Fall and Halloween decor going up in full-effect. I’m always playing with new ideas, and as much as I’d love to do “scary,” we tend to end up leaning “cute” to welcome Trick or Treaters to our home each October. Come that glorious day (which is actually taking place on October 26 in our party-pooping town), all the little ghosts and ghouls will get a chance to score some good candy like Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch and Baby Ruth.

On one of our frequent Walmart runs, the little ones and I picked up a couple of the Nestle variety bags that had been pulling me in with their irresistible Halloween goodness (why was I not aware that Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups exist?), beckoning me to make them the official “sometimes treat” (candy in moderation) of Halloween.
And, also in keeping with our decoration tradition, we needed “The Official Pizza of Halloween” to fuel our adventures, so a couple of Tombstones made their way into the cart.
But what’s Halloween without some monsters?
I started thinking about creating an “edible centerpiece” of sorts – something to break the rules of “don’t play with your food.” Monsters? How about MONSTER TRUCKS! Indeed, I crafted an edible Monster Mash – a Monster Truck Rally where everything but the trucks were edible. Brown sugar for “dirt,” with Nestle Crunch used in place of cars for the “crushing,” packaged candies as sort of the “sponsor wall” if you will, and a tube of cake icing gel to make the “bloody” inscription. Cool to look at, and a sweet treat to eat.
So what do you want on your Tombstone?
When I posted about our pizza tradition last year, the fact that I did “Pentagram Pizza” was a big hit – so whether you’re into SLAYER or Witchcraft, you can represent (or just be silly like we are) with a five-pointed star carved into your pie for horrific results. But this year I also did a “Monster Pizza,” a sort of Jack-O-Lantern face with fangs, but one that doubled as “Vampire Stake Pizza.”
A little garlic and cut the right way, #Vampire Stake #Pizza.

Yes, cut it into the right shape, sprinkle it with a little garlic, and you’re a bonafide demon hunter… or you can at least pretend to be.
