Divinity by CYNDI65, Premium Member © Sarah Phillips Shown in the middle of the candy tray.
Divinity is a light and classic candy made from a meringue. I inherited this recipe from Tami Smith, Premium Member, which I have adapted. Divinity, nougat and marshmallow all belong to the same candy family and all three are very, very close kin in terms of texture, flavor and technique.
Making divinity is temperamental, so NEVER make it on a wet and rainy day!! It can be flavored in so many ways, but use water-based extracts instead of flavored oils, which deflate beaten egg whites. Fold in chopped nuts, dried cherries or crushed peppermint sticks to achieve a wide variety of flavors.
