Creamy Divinity is Heavenly

I have to say I love Divinity if it is creamy, not crumbly.  This recipe is basic but the results are heavenly.

Divinity

4 cups sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

3/4 cup water

3 egg whites, beaten to stiff

1 t vanilla, optional

Place above three ingredients in saucepan over low heat.  Stir until sugar is dissolved; then cook without stirring to 255 degrees (remember if you live at a high altitude to reduce the temperature by two degrees per 1000 ft. above sea level; a little dropped into cold water forms a hard ball).  Remove from heat and pour, beating constantly, in a fine stream into beaten egg whites.  Continue beating until mixture barely holds its shape and is starting to loses its gloss.

Divinity 1  Here the candy is showing the gloss.

Divinity 2  This shows how the candy has changed and is setting up more and has less gloss.

Drop quickly from tip of spoon onto waxed paper in individual peaks, or spread in a buttered pan and cut into 1” squares when firm.

Now the fun part:  After the Divinity has set up and you can handle it, dip half of the candy into melted chocolate.  You can also dip the melted chocolate end into crushed peppermint candy, finely chopped nuts, toffee bits, candy sprinkles, or flake coconut
