Divinity is a sweet candy that can only be described as… well… divine! This southern treat is amazingly simple and surprisingly easy to make. BUT, as with most homemade candies, divinity has can be particularly challenging. Divinity is mostly sugar, and sugar must be cooked with care and patience. Lots of patience. Cooking your sugar into a sweet syrup is only part of the equation, though. The egg whites must be beaten to white snowy peaks. Then the syrup must be added to the egg whites at just the right time and beaten for just the right amount. When it’s over, everyone in your home will fight for the rights to scrape the bowl and beater!
