In the kick-off pre-heat, eight bakers must show off their decorating skills by creating Halloween candy-filled cookies. For the main heat, it's oozy fun with sublime slime desserts: bakers can make any treat, but it must be filled with a gooey slime that leaks out when cut open!
In the pre-heat, the seven remaining bakers must make witches' fingers and toes and create a sauce to dip them in.

For the pre-heat, the five remaining bakers take a light, sweet and utterly harmless dessert -- the cream puff -- and head to the dark side by creating "scream puffs."

In the pre-heat, the four remaining bakers attempt to make desserts that taste like their favorite candy bars.
