Step 2...In a large bowl, use an electric mixer and beat the 2 egg whites until stiff. Gradually add the strawberry gelatin until well blended, set aside.

 

Step 3...Butter the sides of a heavy medium-sized saucepan. Combine the 3 cups sugar, 3/4 cup hot water, and 3/4 cup light corn syrup in the saucepan. Stirring constantly, cook over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves. Use a pastry brush dipped in hot water to wash down any sugar crystals that have formed on the sides of the pan.

Step 4...Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan, making sure the thermometer does not touch the bottom of the pan. Increase heat to medium and bring to a boil. cook without stirring, just until the temperature reaches about 254 degrees. You can also test 1/2 teaspoon in ice water. Mixture will roll into a hard ball in the ice water and remain hard when removed from the water.

I've never made divinity before but I think I'll try this. Your recipe makes it look relatively easy. Thanks for the great photos.

Thanks diva, is pretty easy. Good thing is you can change the flavor just by using a different gelatin.

Thanks girl. But I don't think we are that far...Georgia is pretty much center of the south.

I shall give this recipe a go next year when my new strawberry plants get their act together. I fancy these treats would benefit from pieces of fresh strawberries chopped into the mix. Thank you for the recipe.

Thanks Tom. Be carefully not to add too much, I fear the moisture would make the candy fail.
