2. Cook first 3 ingredients until mixture reaches “hard” stage
3. Pour beaten egg whites into hot syrup beating all the time
Beat until mixture turns dull (no longer shiny)

Divinity is an old fashioned home made candy that my mother used to make. It looks great on a serving platter when displayed with home made fudge which was our other favorite. It is not as sweet as fudge.
