Okay, all right. So I know Thanksgiving comes first. I am well mindful of the calendar as it has been since the begin of prison term.

however, I get a small agitate for Christmas and I want to be prepared ! With sol many more of you staying home for the holidays, whether it be because you are taking time off or working from home, I want to make certain I have ALL of the recipes you ’ re going to be searching for this vacation baking season. This means being on top of my game before you are searching for it. BTW, that ’ s kinda how Pinterest works, if you ’ ve always wondered ! The recipes have to be on there, ready and searchable, in order for us to get the traffic for the holidays .
so yea, I am in the wax Christmas baseball swing here at Casa Parker, baking ALL of the Christmasy things, including theology !
I have made theology before, but this recipe is different because it is made partially in the microwave which is so simple. I was disbelieving it would yield the same touch theology I know from my existing recipe, but boy, was I glad with the resultant role !
If you ’ ve never had divinity, it ’ south kind of an antique sugarcoat that ’ s a hybrid between nougat, marshmallow, and fudge in a room. The outside is firmer like a fudge, but the inside is a nougatty, marshmallowy, downiness that is so irresistible. It ’ randomness inner light and barely indeed alone – you have to give it a try and see what I mean !

The process of actually making them is pretty easy – it takes about 20-25 minutes. But they do need to sit out overnight to dry out some. I know that sounds weird – a dry candy? – but trust me, they are quite sticky and unmanageable when super fresh, so letting them air dry overnight helps firm them up, create an exterior and helps with their fluffy texture. Trust me!

Equipment

  • Candy thermometer

Ingredients

  • 2 bombastic egg whites
  • 2¼ cups granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup lighter corn whiskey syrup
  • 1/8 tsp strategic arms limitation talks
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Place the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer and let come to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

  • In a microwave safe 2-qt bowl (I used a large plastic one), combine the sugar, water, corn syrup, and salt. Microwave uncovered on high for 4 minutes; stir until sugar has dissolved. Cook 6-8 minutes longer, stopping to stir every 2 minutes and checking with a candy thermometer for a temperature of 260° (hard-ball stage). This took me exactly at the 8-minute mark. Just before the temperature is reached, begin whipping your egg whites until stiff peaks form.

  • With the mixer running on high speed, slowly begin pouring the molten sugar mixture into the egg whites. It should take you a good minute or two to fully add in the hot sugar mixture to the egg whites – pouring in a slow but continuously steady stream. Beat until the candy begins to hold its shape but loses some of its glossiness – this could take anywhere from 15-20 minutes. Around the 15-minute mark, I like to check by spooning about a teaspoonful onto parchment paper; if it holds its shape, it’s ready. Once it is at that stage, stir in the pecans and vanilla until just barely combined – overmixing will lead to tough and crumbly divinity.

  • Working quickly, drop heaping Tablespoonfuls of the candy onto parchment paper. You should get anywhere from around 16-20 pieces of candy, though you can make smaller pieces to yield more. Allow the candy to sit, uncovered, overnight so it has time to set and dry some to the touch. Store any leftover candies airtight at room temperature.

Notes

Instead of pecans, you could try using finely chopped and shelled pistachios or finely chopped walnuts!
