Good recipe for old fashion divinity---I have a couple of suggestions to make it fool proof. These always work for me.
1. Cook just as the recipe says until you reach 250 degrees, pour just HALF of the syrup SLOWLY over the egg whites beating continuely, return the other half of the syrup and continue to cook to hard crack stage, 285 to 290 degrees and pour the rest slowly over the egg white mixture. Beat until mixture starts to lose it's gloss, add flavoring, vanilla, almond, etc and 1 tbls. butter or margerine. drop or pour and cut in squares or roll like a log and slice or use log as middle of caramel nut roll. I've even added some chocolate chips after the syrup and made it chocolate flavored. Good with chopped marachino cherries and pecans.
