Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine sugar, corn syrup, vanilla extract and water. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Heat to 250 to 265 degrees F (121 to 129 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.

  • Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff; slowly add gelatin while beating until stiff peaks form. Continue beating and pour syrup mixture in a thin stream over the egg mixture. Beat until mixture thickens and losses its gloss. Stir in pecans.

  • Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Cool; store in airtight containers.

I used Cherry flavored gelatin and omitted the nuts and fruit and these were a BIG hit at Christmas! They stayed nice and soft in airtight containers for WEEKS! Thanks Debbie!! Read More

This recipe came out fine as far as texture but still did not quite taste like all the divinity I have ever had. Will keep looking for another recipe. Read More

This is a good recipe that turned out beautiful divinity. I used apricot gelatin to color the divinity for fall. Read More

I used raspberry flavored gelatin. Beautiful pink color. I don't like divinity with nuts so I omitted them. Held up nicely easy to do. I will make this recipe again. Read More
