Making Perfect Divinity

Updated on September 22, 2014

Perfect Divinity

Delicious divinity candy is not only delicious but melts in your mouth making you want to eat more.

Divinity is a fudge like candy made with corn syrup, sugar, and cooked to the hard ball stage and then beaten into stiff peaked eggs whites. Divinity, sometimes called divinity fudge, is classified as a crystalline candy but is different from most crystalline candies because it contains egg whites. The candy is very similar to nougat which contains almonds and honey although nougat is heavier than divinity.

Because good divinity requires constant heavy beating and since it sets very fast, it is more fun, and makes the job easier to make divinity if you have a partner to help with the beating.
