Christmas Time Divinity

My mama loved Divinity candy so much...
and the love must be in our DNA
because I love it...
and our girl, Stacy, loves it.
I think I am remembering right when I say our boy, David, loves it, too.

Mom and I made it for years and it was always a
hit or miss type cooking...
and it depended on the weather as to if it would be a good batch..
I was taught to never....EVER...try making it if it was raining...
old wives tale ???
I don't know....but I was always making sure the weather was good
before tackling the job...  

and then I saw this .....


easy...???

and look how absolutely BEAUTIFUL each little cloud of goodness.....

I really wanted to make this candy for gifts to a group of Bunco friends...





OMYGOSH...

Would you look at this....

It's seldom I get really and truly excited about a recipe...
but I am jumping thru myself over THIS one...
not only was it EASY....all microwaved...

It is delicious...
DIVINE, actually....
DELICIOUS DIVINE  DIVINITY.....
♥ ♥ ♥


 I ordered these adorable pink stripe little boxes
to put my candy in..




I want to buy some pink and white stripe ribbon to tie on these....



(gosh, I hate to have to "lick" these beaters....Oh, well...SOMEone has to...) 

it's an easy RECIPE (here)
but you must remember...
NOT ALL microwaves are alike 
so you might have to make one batch, using the EXACT recipe
to see that it turns out right. 


Knowing my microwave cooks fast,
I used the full 5 minutes in for the first time and on the second time to put it back into the microwave, instead of 4-5 minutes, I did only 3...
and it came out perfect....




If you try this recipe...please let me know how you liked it.

  4. I saw this recipe. I follow her on Facebook. Never have tried making it, yet. I may now give it a shot since you said it was microwaved. I didn't read the recipe just saw the picture of it. I do like eating divinity.

  8. Oh I'll be trying it! The horrors surrounding this labor intensive fudge always made me nervous or maybe it was the double boiler and the candy thermometer. Thank you for sharing this, BJ!

  12. But, can you make it on a rainy day? Can't wait to try it. The last time I made divinity was 40 years ago. I was pregnant with my son who was born on 12/21.

  14. I'm wishing that I could lick those beaters, bj!! Did you ever have seafoam candy? My mom loved and made that. It's like divinity but with brown sugar.

  15. Oh, my word! It looks divine, without a doubt!! And, I just adore those little candy boxes you ordered! Looks like something out of a little, neat candy store somewhere. Thank you for another wonderful post. You always make me smile. :)

  19. This is a great idea. I love divinity! Now if I could figure out how to make it sugar-free! The first time I ever made divinity was back when I was quite young. I pulled the beaters up out of the bowl before I turned them off and I had divinity ALL over the ceiling! Lesson learned - never did that again.

  21. You are too darling. I love licking the beaters.

  22. I will definitely try that - my youngest loves it, too. My mother said the same thing to me about the weather - humidity wrecks divinity! Wait til she gets a load of this recipe!

  23. Hello bj, This candy LOOKS divine. I am trying it this week. If I am successful or not I will post about it. Smile.

    Some of our children are coming for Christmas and I sure can use a new cookie recipe.
    Have a happy week.
    Love, Jeanne

  24. Yum! My Aunt Catherine used to be the candy maker in our family, she would use 25 pounds of sugar each year, making candy for everybody! Divinity was her speciality too, along with chocolate fudge! She put black walnuts in her divinity! Mmmmmm!!!
