Tony and Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth is hosting what looks to be a delicious confection of a 6 episode series on Food Network this November, Candy Land. The series premieres on Sunday November 15th at 9pm EST. Viewers will enjoy watching the talented teams compete on a number of culinary challenges inspired by the colorful Hasbro board game which debuted in 1949.
