While we bake all year-round, there’s something extra special about breaking out the pots and pans for the holidays. Whether you’re looking for something to whip up for Halloween or Christmas, the new Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Official Cookbook & Entertaining Guide will inspire you to

The frighteningly delightful cookbook is divided into two parts. The first includes over 50 recipes, ranging from appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks that were all inspired by the movie. The second part gives blueprints and planning instructions to throw The Nightmare Before Christmas-themed parties. From DIY decorations to activities to favors, there are creative crafts to bring the celebration to life in a way only Halloween Town can. There are also free downloadable templates for invitations, decorations, and other printable ephemera.

Although there are many recipes, which makes it hard to choose what to make first, some of the ones that caught our eye include: Sally Sweet-n-Salty Popcorn that’s colorful like Sally’s patchwork dress, Igor Cheesy Breadstick Bones that offer a chilling bite, and Oogie Boogie Lemon Meringue Cupcakes that look as good as they will surely taste. What better time to gather your friends for a movie night with on-theme treats to match?
