My first batch I over mixed because it was crumbly. My second batch turned out perfectly..but I learned two things: Watch your candy thermometer! Don't be impatient and get the liquid to 260 degrees Fahrenheit. The second step, I disagree with the recipe. When doing the final mixing, the directions say to mix until no longer glossy. I did that with my first batch and it went from non-glossy to too dry. So, instead, I kept checking for the mixture's ability to hold shape.. that worked. My Divinity was slightly shiny but delicious and creamy!!! I did opt to put pecans into my candy.
Worse divinity I have ever tasted. Hard as a rock and no flavor. DO NOT RECOMMEND!
Followed directions to a tee but it took forever for the syrup to reach hard ball stage. I had to use a hand mixer and the candy never lost its gloss. I added meringue powder and powered sugar to get it to set up. I have to say though, it tastes good.
Finally found a easy and great recipe for divinty.
Excellent divinity. You're microwave's power is different though and you have to experiment with the time
Visit I ruined all the ingredients as my mixer only took less than 4 minutes to overmix. No way was it 15-20 minutes.
Best divinity recipe ever! You must follow directions exactly as stated. I have always struggled with making divinity and had many fails. Not this time! Will definitely make again!!
This was my first time making divinity..the recipe was easy to follow but I was a little slow on the last step..adding the pecans and the vanilla. Even after that mistake it still came out wonderful!!
Love divinity!! Especially when I don't have to use a thermometer or any ball stages.
