1 (6.5 ounce) package of Betty Crocker homestyle fluffy white frosting mix
1/3 cup of light corn syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of boiling water
1 pound of powdered/confectioners sugar (about 4 cups)
Food color, nuts, or sprinkles - optional
In a stand mixer or using an electric mixer, combine frosting mix, corn syrup, vanilla, and boiling water. Beat on low speed until the ingredients are blended, and then turn the mixer to high speed. Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 4-5 minutes. Next, turn down the speed to low, (please do so or else it will look like there was a snow explosion of powdered sugar) and gradually add in the 4 cups of powdered sugar. Add food color, nuts, or sprinkles, if desired. Mix until all of the sugar is incorporated. Then drop by teaspoonfuls onto the aluminium foil lined cookie sheet. Bake for 5 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven. Remove from the oven and let stand for atleast 4 hours or until divinity feels firm. Turn candies over and allow to dry for another 12 hours. Store in an airtight container or put in freezer and store for a few months.
Mixing it up, watch out for the snowstorm! I got my poor mixer a tad messy :(
Once finished mixing it up, you can add in sprinkles, nuts, or even food coloring to customize the divinity.
The little snowballs before they go into the oven- they are a bit scruffy looking here.
It is amazing what just 5 quick minutes in the oven will do to these little divinity balls. The candies look much more fluffier and pillow-like.
