These Hocus Pocus Cupcakes will put a spell on you this Halloween season! With a rich dark chocolate base, peanut “boo-tter” filling, and homemade vanilla buttercream frosting, these fun Halloween cupcakes are inspired by Disney’s latest seasonal desserts and the infamous Sanderson Sisters!
When it comes to Halloween, we have some of the best recipes that not only look spooky and fun, but taste amazing too! Some of our other popular Halloween posts include Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Monster Cookies, Graveyard Dirt Cake, and Poison Apples.
This trio of not-too-spooky cupcakes are delightfully fun for all you witches out there obsessed with Winifred (Winnie), Sarah, and Mary and their exploits on Halloween night. Hocus Pocus is one of our all-time favorite movies and one of the most quotable films ever made! You’ll also love our Hocus Pocus Marshmallow Pops!
We are thrilled that a sequel is in the works and when we saw that the Grand Floridian at Disney World was offering these Hocus Pocus “Amuck” cupcakes filled with “peanut boo-tter” filling, we thought it would be fun to recreate a copycat version of them here for those of us who can’t make the trip to enjoy them in person this season!
The orange frosted cupcake reminds you of the powerful Winnie Sanderson, played by Bette Midler, the yellow is to represent the ditzy Sarah Sanderson, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, and the purple frosted cupcake with the lopsided top is meant to portray Mary Sanderson who has the ability to sniff out children, played by Kathy Najimy.
