Macbeth witches

A childrens misquote?

MMDE: Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble

Current: Double, double, toil and trouble

Shakespeare's famous 1606 play, Macbeth, featured the 3 witches who's various prophesies to him included the message that he shall be king. They were best known for this, and the spells they cast as they tossed various horrible artifacts into their cauldon.

But many people recall this as either "Hubble, bubble" or various combinations such as "Hubble, hubble" or "Bubble, bubble" etc - none of which contain the word "double". Is this a Mandela effect or just a misquote from children seeing the scary witches and associating the phrase with the sound their big black cauldron makes?

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
