‘Christmas Cookie Challenge’ is a reality TV series that presents us with a simple yet delectably interesting format. In each episode, the hosts challenge a bunch of top cookie makers to bake goodies and prove their skills to the audience. The series is judged by a panel of judges and they decide which baker gets a chance to win a $10,000 cash price.
Each round of the competition focuses on unique themes including 3D art, Christmas past and future, as well as ornaments. The bakers have to win each battle against their opponents to win the title of the best cookie baker in the country. Since it is a holiday-themed show, it has faithfully returned to its annual November slot since its launch in 2017. After spanning three seasons, the series is now all geared up to drop its 4th edition. And here is everything we know about it.

What Can Christmas Cookie Challenge Season 4 be About?
We do understand people’s fondness for holiday cookies, which are not merely edible goodies. They serve as gifts, mementos of childhood, and are created with a lot of thought and pride. ‘Christmas Cookie Challenge’ follows five confident and daring bakers as they gear up to prove their baking prowess. The best chef is crowned as the holiday cookie master for the episode and s/he goes home with a $10,000 prize!
Season 4 stays true to the Christmas spirit as well. In one episode, the bakers curate interchangeable mix-and-match cookies, based on Christmas characters. They additionally craft 3-D cookie displays inspired by holiday music. The ingredients must evoke classic Christmas songs such as pears, figs, and chestnuts.
In another episode, the bakers celebrate “piece” on Earth as they create festive puzzle cookies. Later, they are tasked with making a 3-D, standing nutcracker doll — all out of cookies! The nutcrackers also need to have a modern touch, clad in crazy, different outfits — while being embedded with walnuts, pecans, or almonds.
