A Sweet Valentine Treat – Strawberry Divinity!

January 12, 2017|Posted in: Holidays and Seasons, Let's Eat!

Strawberry Divinity

This stuff is Devine!  It is a Christmas tradition at our house, but works equally well as a Sweet Treat for Valentine’s Day!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 3 Cups of Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 Cups of Water
  • 3/4 Cup of Light Corn Syrup
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 of 3 oz. pkg of Strawberry Gelatin
  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Walnuts (Optional – I never add nuts.  I think it’s much better without them)

Here’s What to Do:

  1. Mix together the sugar, water and corn syrup in a large sauce pan and bring to boil over a low heat.
  2. Stir mixture constantly until the sugar dissolves, then stir occasionally until mixture reaches 250 degrees (hard ball stage) on your candy thermometer.
  3. Meanwhile, beat together the egg whites until the mixture is stiff but not dry.
  4. Add the Strawberry Gelatin to the egg whites and continue beating until mixture peaks stiffly.
  5. When the syrup reaches the correct temperature pour it SLOWLY into the egg whites in a thin, steady stream, beating until the candy is thick, holds it’s shape, and loses its gloss. (Hint:  This is the tricky part!  For best results use a tabletop mixer or have a second person help so that one can do the pouring and one can do the mixing)
  6. Add nuts if desired.
  7. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto waxed paper and allow to set before eating.

Make a pretty plate of the sweet treats for your favorite Valentine or share the Valentine love with the whole family!

    Looks tasty! I wonder if you could make it chocolate by adding chocolate chips or chocolate pudding powder or cocoa powder? I’m a chocolate addict 🙂 Thank you for partying with me at my very first Wednesday AIM Link Party. I shared your post on my social media sites.
