Never Fail Divinity

No recipe image available.Fluffy, sweet and creamy—sounds divine! Here's an easy basic divinity recipe, a great backdrop for your own personalized variation.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts

Cooking Directions:

  1. Grease a 9x9x2-inch pan; set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, water and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the syrup reaches the firm ball stage, 250° to 265°F on a candy thermometer. (A small ball of syrup, when dropped in cold water, will be firm to the touch but still able to be flattened slightly.)
  3. While syrup is cooking, beat egg whites with salt until stiff.
  4. Gradually add half the syrup to the egg whites, beating constantly.
  5. Return the remaining syrup to the stove until boiling again, then gradually beat into the egg whites. Stir well, beating until dry.
  6. Beat in vanilla and chopped nuts.
  7. Pour into prepared pan and allow to cool. Cut into squares when firm.

Makes 16 confectons.
