You Won’t Smell Any Children in These Recipes from New “Hocus Pocus” Cookbook

It’s almost Hocus Pocus season––er, Halloween! If your family is a fan of the 90’s cult classic, this new book will up your family movie night.

Ulysses Press is getting ready to drop The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic, 28 years after the freaky film debuted. The 60+ collection of recipes boasts must-make meals that bring the film to life, like Mischief Night Pasta and Baked Witch Casserole.

Compiled with recipes from Bridget Thoreson, kids and adults alike will thoroughly enjoy running amok, amok, amok over William’s Wormy Bed Dirt Cake while enjoying your family movie night. Thoreson shares, “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: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic ($15.99) goes on sale Sept. 7, but you can already pre-order on Amazon.
