This is an extremely awesome recipe!! the divinity comes out light and fluffy!! It never fails!

Also, I've made this on a rainy day and unlike most divinity recipes, this one works!

I will only make this when my daughter helps me. You have to work fast when it firms up. Drop the candy fast on to wax paper.
