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.
