Original recipe makes 5 to 6 dozen Change Servings


  1. Line a 10x15 inch cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Set aside.
  2. Beat frosting mix, corn syrup, vanilla, and boiling water in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Mixture will be very thick, and it is helpful to use a stand mixer.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl and gradually beat in sugar; stir in nuts. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto lined pan. Let stand about 4 hours or until firm. Turn candies over and dry at least 12 hours. Store in an airtight container.

I have made this several times and had no trouble as long as I used "Betty Crocker Home Style Frosting Mix - Fluffy White". When I tried to used mixes from different companies it did not work. When I compared the ingredients, the BC mix has egg whites in it and the others did not so that may be the reason. My mom made this type of divinity when I was growing up and I know it came from a Betty Crocker cookbook! In San Diego, I found the mix at Albertson's and Stater Brothers markets. Contact General Mills customer service to find out if any stores in your area carry it - they gave me a list of six!

I think there must be something wrong with the amount of boiling water for this recipe - 1/2 cup seems like too much. I could not get the frosting mix, boiling water & corn syrup to whip up into anything but runny sweet syrup. I added the confectioners sugar, and continued beating. Nothing. I finally put the entire concoction in the microwave to try to boil it, hoping that it probably needed some additional heat. I then continued beating. It finally beat into something so hard that I had a hard time getting it out of the bowl and into a container. I ended up rolling the final concoction into small little balls. I feel this was a waste of ingredients, including the frosting mix, 4 cups of confectioners sugar, and 1 cup of chopping pecans! Has anyone else had problems with this recipe????

Like other suggested I reduced my water to 1/4 cup. Turned out great!

I also used the BC frosting mix. It turned out excellent. I was scared after reading previous ratings about it not whipping to form a stiff peak. I used my Kitchen Aide mixer and it whipped up in about 5 minutes. This one is a keeper for my family...My mom loves divinity!!

Very leary after reading the reviews but it turned out great and I used the water it called for and about 2½ cups of powdered sugar. I never measured it I used it as it was needed so I just poured until I felt it was right. But the recipe was on the frosting box. It was Betty Crocker and it said after dropping it on the cookie sheets one needs to bake it at 325°for 5 minutes. I did this and it set the candy up immediately. For one that has never been able to make divinity no matter what I tried I was estatic with glee that I finally made divinity that I did not have run all over the place....I will definitly use this recipe again and the neighbors were thrilled too! Merry Christmas with five star joy!!!!

pretty good, was surprised at how well it turned out. very sweet...

I ike the ease of this and is good too. I followed the previous writers advice and onl6y put 1/4 cup boiling water in and then gradually added the powdered sugar until the candy would hold its shape. It took al four cups of the powdered sugar. I would suggest dusting the wax paper with powdered sugaf before dropping the candy onto it. I will make this again. v ery creamy and very,very sweet.
