Directions

  1. Mix sugar, corn syrup, and water together in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Cook sugar mixture in the microwave until mixture is 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), or until a small amount of sugar mixture dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball, 3 minutes.
  3. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks.
  4. Stir sugar mixture into egg whites until no longer glossy, about 7 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Drop candy by teaspoonfuls onto a sheet of waxed paper. Let stand until cooled, 15 minutes.

I grew up making Divinity with my grandmother for ever holiday that came along plus. It was definitely a labor of love. As someone helped themselves to my KitchenAid Mixer and double boiler when I was moving, I thought this might be an easier way to bring a bit of old home into the holiday. It took 8 1/2 minutes in the microwave, checking temp and stirring every three minutes, not just 3 as stated. While it doesn't compare to the tried and true full recipe, it is good. A nice variation is to take maraschino cherries. dry them so no excess moisture remains. Chop them up and add in after the vanilla,it is all mixed. It turns the divinity a pale pink and makes for a nice change.
