How to Make High Altitude Divinity
- Stir sugar, corn syrup, and water over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring, to 245 degrees on a candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a hard ball.
- In mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Continue beating while pouring hot syrup in a very thin stream into egg whites. Add vanilla and beat until mixture holds its shape and becomes slightly dull. Mixture may become too stiff for mixer.
- Fold in nuts. (Note: divinity will not set up if nuts are added before candy is stiff.) Drop mixture from tip of buttered spoon onto waxed paper.
