Peppermint Divinity

From Country Living. I made my first divinity this Christmas and can't wait to make more. This Peppermint version sounds like a good option for that second try. Note: Have everything ready before you start because once the candy reaches temperature it will immediately begin to harden.

  • Combine the sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan with 3/4 cup water and cook over medium heat until the mixture reaches 260 degrees on a candy thermometer, about 20 minutes.
  • Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks in a large bowl using an electric mixer set on medium-high speed.
  • Reduce speed to medium and slowly pour the sugar mixture into the egg whites.
  • Add the peppermint and continue to beat until the mixture is very thick and fluffy, about 12 minutes.
  • Immediately transfer to the prepared pan and smooth using the back of teh oiled spoon.
  • Dot the Divinity surface with red food coloring and drag a skewer through to create a marbled effect.
  • Let stand at room temperature until firm, about 2 hours. Slice into 1-inch squares.
