You really need a candy thermometer for this recipe.

This is Tish's husband. I have grown up with divinity fudge. My grandmother used to make it every year for Christmas and it was always worth waiting for. I could eat half the batch myself!
This recipe is exactly the same as hers. It turns out light and fluffy, not chalky and grainy. If you're a divinity fan this is the right recipe Thanks!!!

This is the same recipe my grandmother used except she used 1 cup chopped pecans instead of the walnuts. It's a must have at Christmas at our house! VERY SWEET!
