Jennifer Garner got into the Halloween spirit with both Macbeth and tomatillo salsa.
On Wednesday, the actress shared a video of herself in full witch character as she prepped food, as if she were on a cooking show.
In the Instagram video, Jennifer giggles while reading Shakespeare’s “Song of the Witches” from Macbeth.
“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble,” she hilariously read while making salsa from scratch in a bowl.
Naturally, Jen also shared her recipe with her 3.6 million followers.
At the end of her detailed recipe, she stayed in the festive mood, writing, “Cast a spell. Yum.”
After her witchcraft was over, Jen shared a video of her wiping off her makeup.
“Sorry to see you go, Halloween!” she wrote, but added, “HelllooooChristmas.”
Jen has often used her Instagram as a faux cooking segment, which she has called her “Pretend Cooking Show.” In June, she shared her family’s chocolate sheet cake recipe.

#PretendCookingShow! This is my family’s go-to chocolate sheet cake recipe— Thank you, @thepioneerwoman ❤️🌟🍫❤️ 😁 The full episode is on the new #IGTV platform— I think the button’s in my profile 🤷🏻♀️ — let me know what you think. #ididthiswithfreshnails #spoileralerttheysurvived . . . The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever. Ingredients: 3 3/4 sticks butter, salted 1 cup water 8 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder 2 cups flour 2 cups sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup buttermilk 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 teaspoon baking soda 6 tablespoons milk 1 lb powdered sugar 1/2 cup pecans (optional) . . . .5 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 1. Melt 2 sticks of regular butter in a sauce pan. Simultaneously boil 1 cup of water. 2. Add 4 heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder to the melted butter and mix thoroughly. 3. Pour in the boiling water and allow the mixture to bubble for 30 seconds. Turn off heat and set aside. 4. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir together. 5. Pour the hot butter mixture over the dry ingredients and stir together slightly, just to cool the chocolate. 6. In a measuring cup, pour 1/2 cup buttermilk and add to that 2 beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Stir together. 7. Add the buttermilk mixture to the chocolate/flour mixture and stir well. 8. Pour the DELICIOUS batter onto an ungreased baking sheet or jelly roll pan and spread evenly. 9. Bake for 20 minutes. Time for icing! 10. If adding nuts, chop 1/2 cup of pecans. The smaller and crunchier the better. Omit for nut-free/picky kids. 🙋🏻 11. Melt 1 3/4 sticks of regular butter. 12. Once melted, add 4 heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder and stir together. Allow to bubble for 30 seconds and then turn off the heat. 13. Stir in 6 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. 14. Add 1 lb powdered sugar, or to taste. For me, 1/2 lb is plenty. 15. Stir together. Add the nuts if you have them. 16. Pour the icing all over the cake and spread evenly. Devour. YUM.

Despite that fact that Jen has fun with her social media cooking videos, don’t let her fool you: She’s got skills!
In March, “Barefoot Contessa” star Ina Garte said of Jen’s videos, “Isn’t she lovely?! I just think she’s so wonderful. I love her videos so much. She is adorable and smart and not at all performing — that’s just who she is. I just think she’s really special.”
