Now that fall has arrived (and with it all kinds of fabulous fall decor), you may be trading in backyard cookouts and ice cold beer for pumpkin-spiced seasonal sippers and slow cooker comfort food dinners. But there's another seasonal favorite to eagerly anticipate as the weather begins to cool: Halloween, and with it, all things magic are front and center.

People who love Halloween and the spooky season likely are already fans of Hocus Pocus, a 1993 Disney movie that has had a cult-following status for nearly 30 years and is a great accompaniment for a movie night set to the theme of the season. But each year, new fans emerge, and the love for all things Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson are shared again with a new generation of delighted fans.

Whether you're an original fan of Hocus Pocus or new to the fandom,  the Sanderson sisters have inspired a brand-new cookbook, packed with recipes for treats and cocktails perfect for the season, any Halloween parties, or just a movie night with the flick on repeat.

The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic by Bridget Thoreson was released last month, just in time for prime Halloween cooking. The new cookbook is full of bewitching recipes inspired by the classic film, such as  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; and many more.

"I hope you enjoy this homage to Hocus Pocus as much as you enjoy the film itself," author Bridget Thoreson says in a press release. "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."

Grab your own copy of the Hocus Pocus-inspired cookbook today, and get to decorating and dressing for the occasion. We're certainly ready to try some bewitching cocktails, or maybe an Airhead Virgin Mocktail, if it's a weeknight.
