The two stars have worked together several times in the past, with the most recent being “Snoop and Martha’s Very Tasty Halloween.” The stars welcomed skilled bakers who split into groups of three, called “scare squads,” and were tasked with building a “full-sensory 12×12 Halloween world” that’s equally spooky and tasty, according to the streamer.
Fans first got a glimpse of Stewart and Snoop, 49, on the screen together in 2008 when the rapper appeared on “Martha.” They later teamed up for “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” on VH1 and continue to star in spots together.
