Ok guys, its your lucky day! Its time to let you in on a family recipe 🙂 This divinity is a family tradition and ALWAYS makes an appearance during the snowy winter season. Our great Aunt Garnet was famous for her divinity. Its so light and airy that its basically like snacking on a vanilla snowball 🙂
Snow Day Divinity
2 1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Water
1/2 C White Corn Syrup
2 Egg Whites
1/2 t Baking Powder
1 t Vanilla
-Cook water, sugar, and syrup on medium low heat until it forms long threads of sugar. This takes 5-10 minutes. You’ll know you’re in business when you pull your syrup coated spoon out of the pan and the syrup that drizzles off the spoon is so thin that it hardens into a thread like string. Be sure to watch your sugar while its on the stove. It can burn if its not being stirred constantly, so keep an eye on it.
After your sugar is cooked, beat your egg whites and baking powder until it reaches the hard peak stage.
Once both mixtures are ready, slowly pour the hot sugar mixture into the egg whites in a slow stream, beating on a low slow setting.
Then add your vanilla and beat until mixture is stiff enough to spoon out onto parchment paper. Top each beautiful white puff with any tasty topping you see fit. We really like topping ours with with our Smoky Mountain Candied Nuts 🙂 Feel free to get creative with your toppings. We also recommend peppermint and chocolate.
We’re sure you’re going to love this divinity! We hope that it can become a family recipe of your own, and we hope that your family will enjoy it as much as ours has throughout the years!
Snowballs and Sugar,
