Dad's Divinity Recipe
This was the only thing I remember Dad cooking around the holidays. And if HE could do it... Just remember my mom's tip: never, never, never try to make candy when it's raining. I don't know why, but it seems to be true!
Good recipe but lots of sugar to start. I found a fix for gooey divinity flops after 4 different attempts from various Divinity recipes. Like others have said the key is pouring in the cooked syrup very slowly in slim streams while beating with the eggs whites. Pouring too much at once will cook the egg whites. Then keep beating (in my case it took 15 minutes) until it starts to lose its gloss. But if it is still gooey, here's how to save it: Reheat the mixture - microwave if you have a glass bowl or put metal pan in very hot water, so it gives your mixer a rest and makes the candy warmer and more pliable. Then start mixing again. If it still wont set up, add about 1/2 to 1 tsp of hot water to the mix then sprinkle in about 1/2 to 1 cup powdered sugar while mixing ON SLOW. It will start to set up much faster now and it changes the texture from a smooth chewy candy to a more fudge-like texture, which I actually like better. I know this is just adding more sugar but other Divinity recipes call for less sugar i
Cooking the sugar mixture to the two different stages was difficult since it got too hot between trying to finish step 2 and starting step 3. The result was more like taffy. Though, I know divinity is not an easy candy to make anyway.
Turned out nice. I am notta fan of divinity, but turned out perfectly. Everyone who tried it liked it.

This recipe is fast and easy and taste better than from the bakery. I struggled for years trying to make divinity and had almost given up when I found this recipe from an old family cookbook.
White divinity which I used to call divinity fudge. Absolutely "divine"! Store in an airtight container.
Traditional divinity candy is a quick and easy dessert to prepare when cooked in the microwave, and this version comes out perfectly every time.
Roll confectioners' sugar and peanut butter into divinity candy and slice off small pieces for the holiday dessert tray.
