Candy Making for Kids with GIVEAWAY!

Ready to have a bit of a sugar coma just from looking at a cookbook?

That, my friends, is Candy Making for Kids by Courtney Dial Whitmore, the author of the popular entertaining site


Candy Making for Kids


From the Skittles-colored backgrounds to the powdered sugar-heavy concoctions, everything about this small cookbook spells fun. Thirty recipes are included, and none use a candy thermometer, making it easy for your little helpers to work alongside you in the kitchen.

Sweet holiday treats like peppermint patties and marshmallow candy corn make way to candy play-dough and rice cereal caterpillars. The book ends with elegant candied rose petals, for a special party touch.

This cookbook would be great fodder for a birthday party or give you something to do on a rainy afternoon. Either way, your kids will go ga-ga … and, let’s be honest, probably have an insane sugar high.

We’re thrilled that the publisher has given us one copy of Candy Making for Kids to give away to our readers. So answer this question in the comments for a chance to win: what is your favorite thing to cook with your kids?

A winner will be selected at random August 31, 2012. LifeWay employees are not eligible to win.
