Food Network’s most iconic culinary competition sweetens the pot with an all-new series, Chopped Sweets. Premiering Monday, February 3 at 10|9c, each episode features four bold chefs competing to take on the toughest tests of their lives as Scott Conant leaves the judges' table behind and takes over as host. Faced with baffling ingredients and an unrelenting clock, these sensational sugar-savvy chefs must utilize a sweet-themed mystery basket through three rounds to create a series of decadent desserts. Scott and a rotating panel of pastry chefs and culinary experts will determine which chef will be chopped, and who will achieve sweet success and walk away with $10,000!

In the premiere episode, the chefs find adult beverages in every basket as they must figure out a way to balance booze with pastry perfection. A special beer and a frozen treat are part of the puzzle in the first round, while a potent pop and a festive frosting meet in the second basket. In the third and final basket, will the larger than life cocktail win over the judges who are thirsting for truly fantastical desserts? Other episode themes feature the chefs taking on carnival ingredients as they set out to make whimsical desserts and also creating miniature sweet concoctions that prove to be delectable little works of art. And see what happens when the chefs learn they will have to make breakfast-themed desserts each round with the baskets full of reminders of the most important meal of the day, including a coffee drink, a cleverly designed candy and waffle dough.
