Eat, Drink and Be Scary! For the first-ever October issue, the Taste of Home pairs some of the some of the spookiest classic films with complementary and delicious recipes.

Gather some friends to watch Hocus Pocus and whip up a pitcher of Witches' Brew with Witches' Brooms, a kiwifruit and mint cocktail with pretzel and licorice brooms. Or, for the braver crowd, turn on Dawn of the Dead and serve a platter of Bones and Blood, meringue cookies with chocolate-strawberry dipping sauce.

Last but not least, for those with a little less time to plan the perfect Halloween party is the Ghostly Pirate Cake. Made with a mix, it takes have the time and will still be the perfect centerpiece for any spook-tacular event!
