So the story goes like this... My Grandma Maurine absolutely LOVED Divinity Fudge. But, being the less that perfect cook that she was, she didn't have a lot of success when making it. My Mom and Dad could always tell when she had attempted to make Divinity, because they would come home to cupcakes or cake with the divinity used as the frosting. Poor Grandma!
Here's a recipe that is sure to please - and turn out successfully.
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 jar of marshmallow cream
1 cup chopped nuts (I used almonds this time, but have used walnuts and pecans in the past)
1 tsp vanilla
Cook the milk and sugar in saucepan until candy thermometer reaches 238 degrees. Stir frequently to avoid the sugar burning.
Remove from heat. Add marshmallow cream; let cool to 180 degrees.
Add chopped nuts and vanilla. Beat together and pour into an 8 x 8 greased pan. You can use butter or non stick spray in the pan.
Let harden and cut into bite sized pieces. YUM!
