Peppermint Divinity
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
Dash of salt
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
Candy canes
  1. Mix sugar, corn syrup, water and salt over medium heat in a medium sized saucepan. Boil the mixture until it reaches 260 degrees F° on a candy thermometer or until a small amount of mixture dropped into ice water holds its shape, but flattens when pressed.
  2. Beat eggs whites on high until stiff peaks form. Continue beating while slowly pouring hot syrup into egg whites.
  3. Add the vanilla and beat mixture for 6-10 minutes, or until no longer glossy.
  4. Scoop mixture onto a sheet of waxed paper. Sprinkle with candy cane immediately after scooping.
  5. Allow divinity to harden for several hours, then place in an airtight container.

  1. What attachment are you using to beat the syrup/egg white mixture? It seems like the wire whips wouldn’t be able to handle the stiffness of the ccs day as it thickened.
