I've never tried to cook divinity, but I've heard stories about others trying and failing, so when I saw this recipe I had to post it for safe-keeping. Cooking time is the drying time overnight. Haven't tried it yet---I bought a box of old Quick Cooking magazines at a flea market and am posting the recipes I want to keep as I go through them.

  2. Gradually add sugar, 6 tablespoons hot water and nuts; mix well.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature overnight or until dry to the touch. Store in an airtight container.

This is the recipe I always use and it works perfectly for me. Everybody loves it. However you cannot make this when the weather is humid. I was going to make this Christmas again this year but I can no longer find the frosting mix.
