Ever wish that Candy Land was a real place while playing the beloved childhood board game? Well, you're in for a treat.

Candy Land, Food Network's new whimsical baking competition show hosted by Kristin Chenoweth, invites five teams of professional bakers and sugar artists to tap into their childhood imaginations and compete in sweet challenges.

Throughout the six-episode series, the teams will venture through a life-size, edible version of the board game complete with "giant candy canes in the Peppermint Forest, life-size gumdrops at the Gumdrop Mountains, a real life gingerbread house at Chocolate Mountain, enormous and luscious lollipops in the Lollipop Woods, and lemons growing right off the vines in the Lemon Lime Springs," according to the press release.

In an exclusive preview of the show (above), Chenoweth surprises the teams, then instructs them on how the "game" will play out. "You'll draw from a deck of cards that will send your team to one of our five unique lands of candy magic," she explains after naming a captain for each team.

"Candy Land is what the world needs right now – oh, and also sugar," says Chenoweth. Similar to the contestants, she loves making sweet treats all year round — especially her very own "chocolate dippers." Get her 3-ingredient recipe below.

“I like anything that I can dip, so if I can dip a wafer into chocolate, I’m going to be really happy," she tells PEOPLE.

Candy Land premieres Sunday, Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. ET on Food Network.
