Food Network Challenge

Hosted by Claire Robinson

Haunted Gingerbread Houses

There goes the neighborhood! Santa Claus and his reindeer are out, and ghosts and goblins are in as a Christmas classic gets a Halloween makeover. The art of gingerbread building takes a giant leap forward as four pastry chefs build not only haunted houses, but a spooky slime-filled cave and a Spanish Galleon manned by skeleton sailors. Who knew something so sweet could be so...scary!
