How to Make Divinity


  • 1In a 2 quart saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt.
  • 2Cook to hardball stage, (260 degrees), stirring only until sugar dissolves.
  • 3Meanwhile, as temperature of syrup reaches 250 degrees, beat egg white till stiff peaks form.
  • 4When syrup reaches 260 degrees, very gradually add the syrup to egg whites, beating at high speed with electric mixer.
  • 5Add vanilla and beat until candy holds its shape, 4-5 minutes.
  • 6Stir in the chopped nuts or cherries, if desired.
  • 7Quickly drop candy from a teaspoon onto waxed paper, swirling the top of each piece.
  • 8Let cool.
  • 9The trick is to make sure you reach the temperature to hard ball stage. If it's not hard enough you will have icing and if it's too hard than you will have divinity brittle.
