Some recipes are magical no matter where they take their inspiration, but what about if they’re inspired by some of your favorite witches? The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook is a collection of fun recipes inspired by the Sanderson sisters, Salem, and all of the favorite parts of that great Halloween movie. While not associated with the film directly, you can find fun recipes for your family for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
Whether you’re attending a surprise rave in town or just spending “a quiet evening at home,” you’ll enchant anyone who tastes these frightfully appetizing recipes, including Baked Witch Casserole; Mischief Night Pasta; Bones of 100 Chickens; Mother’s Scorpion Pie; Life Potion Soup; William’s Wormy Bed Dirt Cake; Dead Man’s Toes, Dead Man’s Toes; Brown Butter Booooook Blondies; Burning Rain of Death Punch; Airhead Virgin Mocktail; and much more!
“I hope you enjoy this homage to Hocus Pocus as much as you enjoy the film itself,” author Bridget Thoreson says. “While blondies are no substitute for Bette and no cocktail is quite as funny as hearing a young girl humiliate her older brother by saying ‘Yabos,’ I hope you’ll find the recipes and references fun, delicious, and delightfully spooky, and you’ll rewatch the film again and again accompanied by the goodies in this booo-ooooo-ooook.”
The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook is the ultimate must-have for fans of all ages—but don’t worry, no children were harmed in the testing of these recipes.
We wouldn’t suggest lighting the black flame candle while you cook, unless you want three extra guests. But some of these recipes are just perfect for the Halloween season and you’re going to love making them with your own family.
