Fantasy Divinity

Recipe by  

"This recipe is fast and easy and taste better than from the bakery. I struggled for years trying to make divinity and had almost given up when I found this recipe from an old family cookbook. I like to make it pink, but use any color you like."

Directions

  1. In a large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven, stir together the water and sugar. Bring to a boil, and heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  2. Remove from the heat, and stir in the marshmallow creme, vanilla, food coloring and pecans. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes until slightly cooled and thickened. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Chill until firm before storing in an airtight container.

I tried this recipe and the candy would not firm up - it was very runny. I'll try making it one more time since it is much simpler than my usual divinity recipe. The only change I will make will be to increase the temperature. I heated to 238 degrees -- next time I'll bring the temperature closer to 250.

Fantastic and so easy!! I tried another divinity recipe and it was difficult and did not turn out like this one. It is a super recipe!

Yes, divinity will turn out grainy and runny if you make it on a humid or rainy day. That is true with any candy or fudge.

This did not firm up well and the texture was too sugary.

No one in my family can make divinity so year before last I tried it and it was a flop. Last year I tried this recipe and it worked wonderful. It was soo good and soo easy to make. Anyone can make this!!!!!
