The new series premieres Monday, March 1 at 10|9c on Food Network and discovery+.

Step into a whimsical world of Easter treats with host Sunny Anderson in the new baking competition Easter Basket Challenge, premiering Monday, March 1 at 10|9c. Seven talented and Easter-obsessed bakers take on culinary challenges to create tasty and imaginative holiday masterpieces. The expert bakers must impress judges Jordan Andino and Claudia Sandoval as they interpret the outrageous themes and showcase delicious Easter confections and unbelievable edible displays. Watch to find out who will win the Bunny Money prize — a golden egg filled with $25,000! For fans who can’t wait for Easter, all episodes of Easter Basket Challenge will be available to stream on March 1 on discovery+.

In the premiere episode, Sunny challenges the bakers to create jellybean-inspired pop art pastry tarts and oversized sweets that are museum-worthy. The bakers take on an Easter classic with Peeps taking center stage in a later episode, as the competitors pay tribute to the colorful marshmallow confection with an edible Easter Parade float. And in another thematic challenge, the bakers rock the runway with their tasty takes on fashion trends using Easter candy as inspiration, including a strut down a catwalk with Easter bonnets. The finale includes the crafty competitors making a three-foot tall panoramic Easter egg, with lots of cotton tails and a few Easter fails along the way, as the last baker standing takes home the grand prize and bragging rights as the Easter Basket Challenge champion.
