  1. Does anyone know where to buy a box of it? I have been looking for years and the closest I come to finding it is divinity which is definitely not the same!


  1. Been looking for this recipe forever - I remember this candy from my childhood. Thank you so much MEANCHEF for sharing it. Its some work, but sooo worth it! You can't believe that these three simple ingredients can make something this creamy and sweet. You really need to try this - you've never tasted anything quite like it.
  2. How long do you pull it?
  3. I am SOOOO happy to find this recipe!! As a child in Kentucky, I absolutely LOVED to sneak this candy from our church potlucks!! For some reason, I thought it had real cream in it,but am happy to try this recipe.
  4. Thank you so much for this recipe. I have searched forever for it. I can remember as a little girl my great-grandma making this. I am so happy to have found it. You brought back many childhood memories. Thank You!!!!!!!!
  5. This takes pratice, and even then it might not always turn out!!! Making this is an art and should be treated as such. The marble slab is absolutely necessary because it cools the candy at the proper speed. Good luck and don't take good batches for granted, they're to be savored!!!
