This recipe was posted in reply to a thread request for no-cook divinity, but in preparing, I (and others)have found it does not harden like a typical divinity. It is delicious, but does have the consistency of a cream-cheese middle. When I made it, it was a substitute for the cream cheese middle for a dessert and worked wonderfully. If you're aiming for this to make divinity candy, it doesn't work as even another reviewer had the same outcome as I did. I didn't whip the candy for as long as the recipe states on purpose for my benefit, but obviously when doing it exactly as the recipe states it doesn't work either.
- 1 (2 5/8 ounce) envelope Dream Whip topping mix
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- 1⁄3 cup karo corn syrup
- 1⁄2 cup boiling water
- Combine the Dream Whip, corn syrup, vanilla, and boiling water in a 2 quart mixing bowl. Beat on highest speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.
- On low speed, gradually blend in the powdered sugar.
- Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Allow to dry at least 12 hours.
Wow, I don't even know what I could have possibly done wrong, the directions only have 3 steps, how easy is that! I didn't give up easy, I tried 3 times, and the last time, left mixer on for 14 min. till I couldn't stand listening anymore. I could not get the mixture to fluff, it stayed in liquid form. I have a big heavy duty kitchen=aid mixer at that. I couldn't try it at all. Thinking about the directions for Dream Whip, you do use cold milk, so don't know if the boiling water prevented it whipping or what, but I give! I have a huge mess, on high it was flying out of the large bowl all over the place. Sorry, I have never given a rating this low, but after 3 times, I felt it was the right thing to do.
