Christmas Divinity

Difficulty: Medium
Serves: 35 - 40 pieces


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 egg white stiffly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup broken nut meats (optional)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Food coloring (optional)


    1. Beat the egg white in a large bowl and set aside.
    2. In a saucepan, boil the sugar, water and syrup while stirring gently. The mixture is done at 235 degrees or if it forms a soft ball when a tablespoon full is dropped into cold water.
    3. Pour the mixture over the beaten egg white, beating continually. Add vanilla, nuts and a pinch of salt. Add a few drops of red or green food coloring if desired.
    4. Beat this mixture until it is almost hard, then drop by the teaspoonful onto waxed paper.
