No-Cook Divinity | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book
This is a great and simple recipe for divinity fudge. The recipe is an answer to a request by my good hub friend Candie V, who was one of my first, and is very loyal follower here on hub pages.
The No-Cook title is technically correct though you do need to boil some water. If you have trouble doing this on the stove top you might want to give it a go in the microwave using a corning ware (microwave safe) measuring cup and set on high for five minutes or so. Keep your eye on it as power settings vary from machine to machine. When it boils turn off the microwave. The other option is to use an electric tea kettle, the modern version will generally cutoff at waters boiling point for your safety. Russell Hobbs Tea Kettles are the Rolls Royce equivalents in this arena (ask any English Woman). While it doesn’t actually boil the water, it comes just short of doing so, (210F) and believe me its hot enough.
The options with this divinity are many and varied and one of my favorites is to use coconut instead of candied fruit or nuts. If you are going to use nuts I would recommend Walnuts or Macadamia nuts, for some reason it just doesn’t blend well with pecans for my taste. However if you substitute maple syrup for corn syrup, pecans work very well as does the coconut. I’d leave the candied fruit for the base version listed below. However you chose to make it please Do Enjoy!!
