If you’re a fan of the Disney movie, Hocus Pocus featuring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters, then you I know how excited you are at the return of Winifred, Sarah, and Mary in Hocus Pocus 2!

Hocus Pocus is a Halloween cult classic, and 29 years after the first movie’s release in 1993, the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters are back for more comedic mayhem in Hocus Pocus 2.

Three young women accidentally bring back the 17th-century sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world.

The movie is released on September 30 on Disney+, so it’s the perfect time to make a batch of Hocus Pocus Popcorn to enjoy while watching the long-awaited sequel!

Popcorn is a classic movie snack, and in this easy recipe, it gets a magical upgrade!

Popcorn is drizzled with melted candy melts, sprinkles, and candy eyeballs – perfect for witches everywhere!

Halloween Treat Idea - Hocus Pocus Popcorn

Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. Staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., aren’t always included here as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ALL ingredients with measurements is found on the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, that you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, liters, etc.,).
