Halloween Cookie Challenge, a new Food Network program, will debut on September 26 at 10 p.m. ET. The program, which was created just for Halloween, aims to promote unusual cookie-baking methods for this frightening time of year. Season 1 of Halloween Cookie Challenge will run for six episodes and will challenge competitors to bake Halloween-themed cookies. By the conclusion of the sixth episode, the participant who has impressed the judging panel will be crowned Halloween Cooking Champion and will receive a large financial award.
According to the show’s official synopsis:
“This Halloween, candy will not be our only delicious delight. Expert chef Jet Tila and baking queen Rosanna Pansino gather four of the country’s greatest cookie makers to compete in two rounds of baking, decorating, and 3D cookie creating to establish who is the cookie to fear! The victor will get a trick-or-treat bag containing $10,000 as well as the title Halloween Cookie Champion.”
Chefs Rosanna Pansino and Jet Tila, who will also serve as judges on the program, will present the Halloween Cookie Challenge. Rosanna is a baker and YouTuber, while Jet is a star chef and restaurateur. This is their first time being matched together.

The competition will be conducted in two rounds for the first episode of Halloween Cookie Challenge, dubbed Halloween Costumes and Haunted Houses.

Contestants will be assigned the challenge of creating two outfits out of cooked dough in the first round. This round is described in the episode’s official summary as follows:
“Halloween is quickly coming, so don’t worry if you haven’t chosen what to dress up as yet! In the first round, presenters Jet Tila and Rosanna Pansino entrusted four skilled cookie bakers with making two outfits entirely out of cookies!”
To spice things up in the second round, contestants will be required to create 3D cookie structures. Aside from that, the cookies will need to be infused with unique tastes. This round is described in the episode summary as follows:
“Things become eerie in round two when the cookiers create 3D haunted buildings. They use spirits such as black raspberry liqueur, melon liqueur, absinthe, and orange aperitif to ensure their displays have a hauntingly delicious taste.”
