DIRECTIONS

  • 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. This will take about 10-15 minute.
  • 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. This will take quite a while, maybe 15 min, so be patient. 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.
