Hocus Pocus Book of Spells Cookies

“Oh Booooook” !

Who doesn’t love them some Winifred Sanderson and Hocus Pocus at Halloween?! It’s a classic, for sure.  I watch it every year and it’s honestly, one of my favs.

I remember being totally freaked out by the eye ball in the Book of Spells when I was a kid.  Now, watching it as an adult, it seems so fake, but still, really cool…and creepy.  Creepy enough to turn into a Halloween treat?  Sure!

And super easy.  Like, almost, too easy.

Get a box of chocolate covered cookies. Any kind that are square or rectangular. I found peanut butter filled chocolate covered cookies and mint chocolate cookie chocolate covered cookies (think Girl Scout Thin Mint knock-off, but square!).

Add pre-made black colored frosting in a tube and a package of candy eyes and you’re ready to roll!

Put a blob of black icing on one side (right side) of the cookie, or dot on the back of the candy eye.  Overfill it a bit so that when you press down on the cookie, it oozes out and makes a black boarder.  Use the black frosting tube and draw a squiggle on the opposite side (left side).  Add some stitch marks and extra lines and BOOM, you’ve got a spell book that old Winnie herself might come after.

The lumpier and uglier the cookie, the more realistic it is that it’s a book with skin stitched together as a cover!  Ewwww, gross, right?  I bet it will taste delicious.  And it will make a great treat for Halloween parties.
