We'll also try to finally settle how many licks it takes to get to the center of the iconic Tootsie Pop.
Damaris' sister Morgan lives in a neighborhood where they're crazy for Halloween, so she asks for Damaris' help carving up pumpkins, decorating her house and making sweet treats. Damaris rises to the occasion and creates a stunning Red Velvet Lava Cake, as well as Cornmeal and White Chocolate Biscotti to dip into a hearty Roasted Chicken White Chili.
Four chefs receive their first culinary curveball when they're told to make a stir-fry using only ingredients from even-numbered aisles. Next, they have to turn the main ingredients of lemon bars into a dinner. Then, the chefs must make their best dish featuring a collision of two international cuisines.
For the final battle, two teams — each made up of an expert pumpkin carver, cake decorator and sugar artist — go head-to-head to create terrifying and screamworthy displays of an undead dinner party. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, serves as the special guest judge and helps determine which team wins the $50,000 grand prize.
One chef takes Manhattan ... clam chowder, that is. Then, someone gets shell-shocked by an opponent. Finally, it's a cold, cold winter when one chef feels the heat.
