Divinity 2

These are just delicious.

Made in the microwave, so no need to worry about boiling and candy thermometers. Although you do still need to be VERY careful not to splash yourself with the melted sugar mixture!




2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup golden syrup
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg whites
1 1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract (I used almond)
glace cherries, or nuts if preffered




Mix together sugar, water, syrup and salt in an oven proof 2 qt. casserole dish, or similar.

Loosely cover with a lid or cling film. Microwave on High (100%) for 6 minutes.
Uncover. Microwave on High for another 9 minutes.
While syrup is cooking the last 9 minutes, beat egg whites on high until stiff.

Slowly pour hot syrup over egg whites while beating at high speed of mixer. Add extract  and continue beating on high for another 4 to 5 minutes until mixture holds its shape.

Quickly drop teaspoons of candy onto waxed paper and top with half a glace cherry. Leave to cool.


What do you think, would you make this?
