Thank you for this recipe. I had this recipe for years and then thru all our moves, I have misplaced it. I found it originally from the Texas Extension Service and that was almost 50 years ago. I cannot believe I found it. Thank you. this is the very best recipe. My husband loves Divinity and this is going to be the best Christmas Present for him. Lorine

Thank you so much! This is the recipe my mother and aunt used. I had a partial version written on an old grocery list. I believe Ms. Bourland above is correct about its age….I was born in 1964 and am told that’s around the time mom first started making it. It was a tradition every Christmas…she made and mailed boxes of it to all the relatives. A neighbor who was serving in Vietnam wrote and asked her to send him some (she did), saying it was his taste of home away from home.
