"This was the only thing I remember Dad cooking around the holidays. And if HE could do it... Just remember my mom's tip: never, never, never try to make candy when it's raining. I don't know why, but it seems to be true!"

  1. Cook syrup, sugar, and water to soft ball stage (a small amount dropped into cold water forms a soft ball).
  2. Pour half of this mixture over stiffly beaten egg whites. Stir.
  3. Cook remaining sugar mixture to brittle stage (a small amount dropped into cold water turns immediately brittle).
  4. Add to previous mixture and beat until candy will hold its shape. Beat again by hand to re-aerate it. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Allow to harden as it cools. Store in refrigerator with waxed paper between layers.

This Divinity is delicious!!! And it's absolutley goof proof...Great for a quick party take-along!!!!

I have not tried this recipe as it is very similar to the one I have used for years. You are not supposed to make divinity when it rains as it supposedly will not set BUT my recipe says that if...

These are really good but I found that they took a while before they would keep there shape so I would just let the mixture sit in the bowl for a couple of minutes and then go back and finish mi...

This is a really great divinity. I added a 1/2 cup of dried blueberries and 1/2 cup of walnuts. To add a little more zip. The little blueberries made the candy even sweeter. However, I had guest...

This turned out perfect! The consistency turned out exactly like it should, and all in all, it was very yummy! I found the directions a LITTLE hard to follow, as "soft ball stage" is harder ...

Excellent recipe , but I live in Florida so I brought the temp. to 300 almost hard crack stage and beat almost 10 min. Don't stop beating until it looks dull !!

This was great! My Fathers favorite candy is Divinity and I really wanted to make some for him. This does set up fast so work it quick! Good stuff !!!
