How to Make Jello Divinity
- In a medium saucepan over a low burner, combine sugar, Karo, vanilla and water. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Heat to 250-265° or to a hard ball stage.
- Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff; slowly add gelatin while beating until stiff peaks form. Continue beating and slowly pour syrup mixture in a thin stream over the egg mixture. Beat until mixture thickens and loses its gloss. Stir in nuts.
- Work quickly and drop by teaspoons onto wax paper. These will stiffen quickly. After cooling, place in an airtight container.
