Heads Will Roll

Chefs Maneet Chauhan and George Mendes and actor Kevin McHale step in to judge the next round of talented junior chefs. First, the kids open the appetizer basket to find something staring right back at them! A cute candy creation and a twist on garlic bread spice things up in the entree round.

Hot Potato, Not Potato

Four ambitious kids bring their cooking skills to the Chopped Kitchen as they try to impress chefs Lazarus Lynch and Marc Murphy and actor James Maslow. Ground beef and chocolate present a conundrum for the competitors in the first round. In the entree basket, an ingredient that looks like a giant baked potato is something else entirely, and a red, white and blue snack in the dessert basket is a patriotic potpourri for the finalists.
