SOUTHERN LADY COOKS: EASY CHRISTMAS DIVINITY

By Judy Yeager

 

This divinity is so easy to make in the microwave and is so good. You won’t ever make it any other way again!  Makes a great gift, too. 

Ingredients:

2 cups white granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans or nuts of your choice, chopped

Preparation:
Combine sugar, water, corn syrup and salt in a glass casserole dish.  Cover with saran wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Remove from microwave and take off saran wrap. Stir well and return to microwave uncovered.  Cook on high for another 4 to 5 minutes until reaches hard ball stage when a little is dropped in cold water.  Remove and cool about 4 minutes.  Beat egg whites until stiff with mixer.  Pour sugar mixture over egg whites beating constantly with mixer until mixture starts to lose its gloss and holds together.  About 4 or 5 minutes.  Stir in vanilla and nuts.  Drop by teaspoonful onto wax paper.  Makes about 25 pieces depending on size you make them.  Enjoy! 

A Note From The Southern Lady: 
To clean glass bowl you used in microwave soak in warm soapy water immediately after emptying sugar mixture.
