Quick and easy to make divinity in your microwave! Sweet and delicious, a perfect treat to add to your cookie tray this holiday season!
- 2 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup pecan halves
Preparation time 35mins
Cooking time 95mins
In large (at least 8 cups) microwave safe bowl or microwave safe batter bowl, place sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir.
Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Stir.
Microwave for 9 minutes more.
While that is cooking, place egg whites in a large very clean mixing bowl (stand mixers are ideal for this). Beat until stiff peaks form. Set aside until syrup is done cooking.
Remove syrup from microwave. Place on a potholder or folded towel next to your mixer. Turn mixer back up to high and slowly pour a continuous but very thin stream of syrup into the bowl while it is mixing until all syrup has been added.
Add vanilla while continuing to mix.
Mix for 4-5 minutes more or until divinity loses it's sheen and begins to hold it's shape.
Quickly drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Once it's all dropped onto the paper, quickly shape into smoother balls with clean hands. Press a pecan half into the top of each one.
Store in airtight container. Enjoy!
NOTE: Do not make on a rainy day! This is for about a 1000 watt microwave oven. If you have a higher watt one, then lower cooking time. You can also cook syrup on stovetop until it reaches 260 degrees on a candy thermometer.
