Divinity has been a Challenge for me, Until I found this recipe, In the 70's, A friend, & Neighbor Gave me this recipe. It is very easy, but You do need a "CANDY thermomter".
It needs to Boil to SOFT BOIL STAGE @ 240 on your thermometer. after this its a cinch to make.

TIP:Measure all ingredients out and set a-side and have ready to pour into mixture, as this sets fast..
