Following in the footsteps of her first book – Push-Up Pops – the brand spankin’ new Candy Making for Kids is packed with beautiful imagery and adorable sweets. This time, however, the treats are tailored just for the little ones, which means fun and easy ideas with no candy thermometer required! Check the entire book out right here.

    My son is almost two and already loves “helping” me in the kitchen and pretend cooking and he most certainly inherited my sweet tooth so this would be so much fun to share with him!

  2. Dawn Pleet says:

    My daughter wants to have a candy-themed birthday party this year and this book would give us tons of creative, yummy ideas and other candy-making fun to share with the whole family.

    I would love to win this book. My little angel is about to turn one and would love to have some cute things for her birthday party that I could make out of the book and then have it in the future for when she’s able to help me out in the kitchen and show off her cooking skills. :) Such a cute book. Would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would love to win this book because I’ve been looking for activities I can do with my daughter that will bring us closer together. She is very creative, and I think we would have a lot of fun trying out recipes from this book.
