Easy Divinity

Just found this recipe on

Sounds easy and makes about 2 dozen candies.

1 jar marshmallow cream
1/2 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla(optional items to add see list below)

Boil the sugar and water to the soft ball stage. Remove from heat and stir in marshmallow cream and vanilla. Add other items, if desired. Let cool 5-10 minutes.

Drop from spoon onto wax paper to cool. If the pieces run and are smooth, let cool for a couple more minutes before dropping any more onto paper. The pieces should be fluffy when dropped, not runny. Place peppermint on top of each piece if desired, as dropped. Let cool 30 minutes and enjoy!

The reason I like Divinty is all the ways you can change it up.

Here some suggestion on how:
add a little creme de mint and green food coloring for a green treat
add any type of nut, walnuts, pecans, almonds, peanuts
add peppermint pieces
add tiny chocolate chips
add coconutadd finely chopped dryed fruit

As you can see the options are limitless.

Hope you enjoy,
