Never Fail Divinity
A fluffy, sweet meringue confection—like a candy kiss from heaven!
Recipe Ingredients:2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup hot water
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts or pecans (optional)
- Combine sugar, syrup, water and salt in a 3-quart saucepan. Cover pan and bring to a boil. Remove cover and cook, stirring occasionally, to hard ball stage (260°F | 125°C), or until a small amount of mixture is dropped into cold water and forms a ball that holds its shape but is pliable.
- Meanwhile, beat egg whites in large mixing bowl until stiff. Gradually pour in hot syrup in small stream while continuing to beat. Add vanilla and continue beating until mixture will hold its shape when dropped from spoon.
- Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or pour into a 13x9x2-inch baking pan lined with lightly buttered waxed paper or aluminum foil. Cool; invert pan and peel off paper. Cut into squares.
Makes about 48 confections.
