2 dozen divinity pieces


  • 2 cups white sugar

  • cup light corn syrup (such as Karo®)

  • ½ cup water

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix sugar, corn syrup, and water together in a microwave-safe bowl.

  2. Cook sugar mixture in the microwave until mixture is 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), or until a small amount of sugar mixture dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball, 3 minutes.

  3. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks.

  4. Stir sugar mixture into egg whites until no longer glossy, about 7 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract.

  5. Drop candy by teaspoonfuls onto a sheet of waxed paper. Let stand until cooled, 15 minutes.
