Divinity

2 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix sugar, corn syrup and water. Cook at medium heat in sauce pan until it reaches 260 degrees which is a hard boil stage. You are ready with the other step when the ingredients are almost at hard boil stage. To the side before the mixture is ready take 2 egg whites and mix until it reaches stiff peaks. Make sure you whip the egg whites in a large bowl. Slightly pour the liquid into the egg whites and continue to mix on high speed on mixer. Keep mixing after all hot liquid is mixed. You will continue to mix with mixer until it becomes dull in color and starts to thicken. This is where you will turn off mixer and work with a wooden spoon. Have a buttered plate ready to pour candy into plate. As it gets thick then put vanilla and only when ready to put on plate add nuts. Fold in and be ready to place on plate. Let it completely cool and then cut into squares. Then place in a container with a lid or serve to your family and friends.
