Hocus Pocus – A Halloween favorite of many, Hocus Pocus is a must-watch every year. The Sanderson Sisters are beloved Halloween icons, so naturally they have a snack created in their image. These Hocus Pocus cupcakes are adorable and delicious.
It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown – This one is a family favorite. It’s the perfect seasonal yet not-so-scary movie to watch with kiddos. What better way to watch The Great Pumpkin than with (great) pumpkin bars?! These melt-in-your-mouth pumpkin bars are the epitome of fall goodness.
Halloweentown – Halloweentown is another wholesome family-oriented movie that defines the season. Gather the whole family and curl up with a steaming mug of tasty and brew-tiful Witch’s Brew Hot Chocolate!
The Nightmare Before Christmas – Some may argue this is a Christmas movie, but you must admit, it sure does put you in the spooky spirit. Regardless of what time of year you watch it, Sally Sugar Cookies are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Casper – It’s not Halloween without everyone’s favorite friendly ghost! Capture Casper’s spirit with these easy and cute ghost brownies! They’re sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
The Haunted Mansion – How can you not love this early 2000s Eddie Murphy gem? The only thing that could make it better is a matching snack! As a nod to one of the kid’s fear of spiders in the film, try these easy-to-make Reese’s Pumpkin Spiders.
Ghostbusters – If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, you know exactly what movie to cue up. Some of you may remember Hi-C Ecto Cooler punch, although it hasn’t been seen in stores for years. It seems you’ll have to settle for homemade Ecto Cooler Punch unless Hi-C decides to bring the elusive flavor back.
Beetlejuice – Perhaps not the most family-friendly movie but beloved by many! This film and snack may be more of an after-the-kids-go-to-bed kind of occasion. Mix up a boozy Beetlejuice cocktail and unwind after a long night of trick-or-treating.
