Love Cupcake Wars? Can’t get enough of the Kids Baking Championship? Then your mini master chefs will be very excited to check out Food Network’s Halloween line up.

Food Network has just revealed it will be launching a whole slate of Halloween-themed programming to kick off the holiday season. While the channel has featured Halloween shows like Halloween Wars in the past, this year there will be even more spooktacular fun to enjoy.

“Food Network is the ultimate destination for Halloween-themed content, showcasing the holiday like no one else can with nail-biting competitions and jaw-dropping creations that viewers just can’t get enough of,” Courtney White, President, Food Network and Cooking Channel, said in a statement. “With Halloween Baking Championship and Halloween Wars both seeing series-high ratings last year, we knew we had to deliver even more tricks and treats this holiday season, upping the ante across both networks.”

The programming will kick off on Sep. 23 with both the return of Halloween Baking Championship and the new series premiere of Halloween Cake-Off. On Sep. 26 the fun continues with the launch of Kids Baking Championship: Tricks & Treats, which features hosts Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman challenging young chefs to create the spookiest spider web desserts.

Other new series premiering in September and October include Halloween Wars (Sep. 29), Outrageous Pumpkins (Sep. 29) and Haunted Gingerbread Showdown (Oct. 6). There will also be special sweets and treats-themed episodes of Barefoot Contessa: Cook Like a Pro, Chopped, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Girl Meets Farm, Guy’s Grocery Games, Guy’s Ranch Kitchen, The Kitchen, The Pioneer Woman and Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.
