“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.
Watch out for those Sanderson sisters! Happy Halloween, y’all!
