      Very good! Turns out everytime! Just a hint to make spooning it easier. Have a cup of cold water ready and dip your metal spoon in it when scooping it. Slides right off. (My Grandma taught me this)

      I love Divinity! My granny and I make it every Christmas and instead of stirring in the nuts we place a singel pecan on each one which makes it very pretty! This recipe is a good one!! I have one small change though, I decreased the sugar to 2 cups because my first batch was very stiff. My second batch was perfect! Like little pillows of goodness! My granny also says never to make it on a rainy day, too much humidity!

      Yummy! Just like my Auntie used to make. I used my Kitchen Aid and only needed to beat it at the 8 speed for about 3 minutes. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly.
