Hocus Pocus Sugar Cookies

It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus! Break out the black flame candle because we are making Hocus Pocus sugar cookies that look like the perfect witches brew. You won’t find any dead mans toe in these cookies, just some fun sprinkles. Get ready for some fun Hocus Pocus recipes in the coming weeks, I have some great ones to share with you. 

Hocus Pocus is my all time favorite Halloween movie. I love it so much that we started watching in August. We also bought the new Hocus Pocus book that includes a sequel story! I love the deeper look into this great story. Hocus Pocus Sugar Cookies


For these cookies you’re going to need a Cauldron Cookie Cutter and lots of fun Halloween Sprinkles. You can use any colors you like but I think the Edible Eyes are a nice touch. Decorating sugar cookies with this much icing will require some drying time so make sure you plan ahead.
