I thought I had ruined this but am so glad I waited it out, because a day later it's divine. Amazing it came out right because my candy thermometer doesn't seem to work... I never really got it up over 240 but it had cooked for about 20 minutes at that point and it was getting yellowish, so I just used the "drop some into cold water" method, which I am not expert at. It "seemed" like it was at the right stage, so I went ahead with recipe. Beat it forever in stand mixer but it never got very dull, went ahead and dropped some on waxed paper (very sticky), but that was difficult so I ended up greasing a square cake pan and pouring the rest in there (my Grandma's divinity was always cut little squares, not drops). It was sooo sticky for the first 12+ hours, I thought it was ruined. The stuff on the waxed paper never looked right. On a whim I cut a square out of the cake pan, and voila... perfect Divinity!! Glad I didn't try to "fix" it yesterday!
