    High Altitude Divinity

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    • 2 2/3 cups sugar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
    • 2 egg whites
    • 2/3 cup broken nuts


    1. Stir sugar, corn syrup, and water over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring to 247 degrees on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a hard ball.
    2. In mixing bowl, beat egg whites, until stiff peaks form. Continue beating while pouring hot syrup in a thin stream into egg whites. Add vanilla, beat until mixture holds its shape and becomes slightly dull. Mixture may become too stiff for mixer. Fold in nuts (Note: Divinity will not set up if nuts are added before candy is stiff). Drop mixture from tip of buttered spoon onto waxed paper.
