Alton Brown and Food Network have cooked up a wickedly sweet Halloween treat for “Good Eats” fans: The cable channel will air a new “Good Eats” primetime special from Brown next month. And yes, of course it’s about candy.

Here’s the official description for the episode, courtesy of “Food Network”: “Just in time for Halloween, Alton Brown tells the mysterious tale of a ghoulish 100-year-old cookbook in the cinematic Good Eats primetime special The House That Dripped Chocolate. Premiering on Thursday, October 8th at 9pm ET/PT and shot in black and white, the story begins when a cook, played by Brown, buys an old candy cookbook that turns out to be cursed. Every time he makes a treat, the tricks get weirder… not to mention more painful.”

“Nobody but the incomparable Alton Brown could thrill our viewers with a ghost story about a haunted cookbook,” Food Network president Courtney White said in a statement . “‘Good Eats’ fans and chocolate lovers everywhere are in for a real treat with the tale he has prepared for them this Halloween.”

Brown added: “I’ve been itching to make a classic-style horror film for decades. I finally got to scratch it. And, the candy is darned tasty!”
