Rating: 1/5

On "Chopped After Hours", the judges are tasked with creating dishes out of baskets filled with the same ingredients that were given to the show's contestants. It's not a competition, though, as it's a laid-back demonstration of what the judges can create. The judges taste one another's dishes when they're done.
