Introducing The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic by Bridget Thoreson [ISBN: 978-1-64604-241-8; $19.95; Ulysses Press; September 2021], a marvelously spooky cookbook featuring delicious recipes based on your favorite cult classic film from 1993. 

Hocus Pocus first premiered 28 years ago in the golden age of ’90s cinema- and has since achieved cult-classic fame, with both children and adults as a loyal fanbase. Fans fall in love with the delightful, demonic, and diva-esque Sanderson sisters and the sleepy New England town they torment. 

Now, as you plan your annual viewing of the family favorite flick, you can also conjure up your own spooky treats and bewitching drinks to celebrate Halloween. 

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 

Bones of 100 Chickens 

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.
