Handwritten Recipe For Double Divinity

Double Divinity

(For pastel divinity – add 15 drops of food coloring to uncooked syrup)

2 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/2 c. water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in heavy 2-qt saucepan.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. (If sugar crystals form on side of pan, wipe them off.)

Reduce heat and cook without stirring until temperature reaches firm ball stage (248°)

When candy mixture reaches 242°; beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Cook candy mixture to 248° and slowly pour about half of it over egg whites, beating constantly with electric mixer and med. speed.

Continue to cook remaining syrup to the soft crack stage (272°).

Beating constantly, pour hot mixture, a tablespoon at a time, over egg white mixture, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture begins to lose its gloss and a small amount dropped from a spoon holds soft peaks. If mixture becomes too stiff for mixer, beat with wooden spoon.

Mix in vanilla.

Drop by teaspoon on waxed paper.

Makes 27 drops or 1 1/2 pounds.

Chocolate Divinity

If you beat double divinity with electric mixer, add 2 squares melted unsweetened chocolate immediately after last addition of hot syrup: beat until mixture starts to lose its gloss. If you beat by hand, beat 5 minutes after last addition of hot syrup to egg white mixture and then add 2 squares melted unsweetened chocolate and beat until mixture holds its shape when dropped from a spoon.
