    personalchef's Note:

    You MUST have a heavy duty stand mixer to make this. It is my absolute all time favorite Christmas candy. Please make sure your walnuts are very fresh. This is a delicate candy and any off taste in the nuts will ruin it. 3 c. sugar 1/2 c. light corn syrup 2/3 c. water 2 egg whites 1/8 tsp. salt 1 tsp. vanilla 1 c. chopped nuts Bring sugar, corn syrup, salt and water to a boil. Cook to hard ball stage, (250-265 F) wiping any crystals from side of pan from time to time. While syrup is boiling, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Very slowly pour a thin stream of syrup into the stiff egg whites keeping mixer at med high speed for as long as possible, reducing speed to med as mixture thickens. Add Vanilla Continue beating until mixture is very thick and loses its gloss. Stir in nuts with spoon. Drop by spoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Allow to cool completely at room temperature. Store at room temperature for up to 1 week. Can be refrigerated. I have never tried to freeze Divinity, it has never lasted long enough.
