How to Make Divinity


  • 1Cook only on a DRY day!
  • 2In heavy-bottom pan over medium heat, boil syrup of sugar, water and corn syrup until close to done (about 10 minutes); will spin a thread to pot.
  • 3Take candy off heat.
  • 4Beat egg white with a pinch of salt until you have stiff peaks.
  • 5In a large bowl, add the hot syrup to the beaten egg white while mixing at a high speed.
  • 6If syrup starts to harden, pour a little more.
  • 7When mixture gets stiffer and warmer, can add in a larger stream.
  • 8Add vanilla extract to candy.
  • 9Stir by hand until texture dulls (seems like it takes FOREVER).
  • 10When cool, add nuts (if you add them too soon, the heat pulls the oil out of the nuts and the candy won't harden).
  • 11Drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper.
  • 12To expand the recipe, use no less than 2 cups of sugar; if you quadruple, add an extra egg white, especially if eggs are small.
  • 13Might also try stirring in 3 ounces of broken white chocolate before dropping candy (won't melt).
