For many of us mortals, mummy sausage wraps, pumpkin bread, butterbeer, and caramel apples are typical Halloween delicacies. But if you've ever wondered how the supernatural feast on the other side, just take a peek inside this Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook, by Bridget Thoreson, and the Sanderson sisters are sure to ask for a seat at your table. Packed with over 60 frighteningly good Halloween recipes, the book includes savory dishes like Life Potion Soup and Mischief Night Pasta, all guaranteed to be tastier than the "little children" the Sanderson sisters have on the menu.

If your taste buds err more on the sweet side, the cookbook also includes recipes for Chocolate-Covered Finger of a Man Named Clark and Clever Little White (Witch) Chocolate Chunk Cookies inspired by Allison and her makeshift salt protection circle. There's even a recipe for a tuna biscuit dinner that any familiars furry friends, Binx included, would want to get their claws on. Personally, I can't wait to snack on the indulgent Brown Butter "Booooook" Blondies while Winnie Sanderson serenades me to the tune of "I Put a Spell on You" this Halloween.

Whether you were born in the '90s or you've seen Hocus Pocus too many times to count, carefully brew yourself a fiery Black Flame Cocktail (recipe below) and flip through some of the spookiest concoctions in The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook ahead.
