Divinity, The Easy Way

Jeanne Benavidez


I got this recipe from my sister 25+ years ago. At holiday time, we would always get together and make all kinds of candies, cookies and other treats for christmas giving. We haven't made as much the last few years because everyone is trying to eat healthier but this one is stil requested every year.

How to Make Divinity, The Easy Way


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry frosting mix, corn syrup, vanilla and boiling water.
  2. Using an electric stand-mixer, beat on high speed until stiff peaks form (about 5 minutes). Light hand-mixers aren't usully powerful enough.
  3. Reduce speed to low and gradually blend in sugar.
  4. Gently stir in the nuts.
  5. Using a teaspoon, drop the mixture onto waxed paper. When outside of candy feels firm, turn over; dry at least 12 hours (depending on the humidity).
  6. Store in airtight container.
