Christmas Divinity


If you love light and fluffy sweetness, here's a yummy recipe to make this Christmas Season!

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup corn syrup
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch salt
1 cup chopped pecans

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water, and corn syrup and cook until sugar is dissolved and comes to a boil. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 250-265 degrees (hard-ball stage). Remove from heat. 

Meanwhile, beat egg white in a large mixing bowl, until stiff peaks form. On high speed, carefully pour hot syrup in a slow, steady stream into the egg whites. Add vanilla and salt. Beat on high speed until candy loses its gloss and holds its shape, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in pecans. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Makes 36 pieces.
