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.

  2. Pour hot mixture over stiffly beaten egg whites, beating constantly
  3. Cook second mixture to hard ball stage; slowly add to egg mixture, beating constantly.
