Discovery-owned culinary cable net Food Network has ordered a new sugary edition of its cooking competition series Chopped, set to premiere next month.

Chopped Sweets (pictured) follows the Chopped formula, with four chefs competing with each other while racing the clock. Through three rounds, the chefs have to use a sweet-themed ingredient from their mystery baskets to create different dessert iterations to impress host Scott Conant and a rotating panel of culinary experts, all to walk away with a US$10,000 cash prize.

The first episode will see chefs working with adult beverages, balancing booze and baking to impress the judges.

Chopped Sweets is produced by Notional for Food Network, with Linda Lea serving as executive producer.

Chopped Sweets takes viewers on a sweet and exhilarating culinary ride, pushing some of the most talented chefs to their limits to create beautifully crafted desserts from eccentric mystery ingredients,” said Courtney White, Food Network president, in a statement. “Scott Conant brings his culinary and judging acumen as host to all the action, making Chopped Sweets a welcome addition to the Chopped family.”

The series will premiere Feb 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Food Network.
