In Response to Re: What are you Making... not baking;-):
Verlee - lol - my divinity recipe is so old ... chocolate chips hadn't been invented!! *joke* .... but it is so old that mini-chips had really not been invented. It's still warm when it's spooned into pieces I wonder if any chips would work. I dont know. I made a batch while ago ... as usual it gets too set, too stiff before I can get it all spooned out of the mixing bowl. So it's not all perfect looking but the taste is divine. It's so smooth it almost dissolves in your mouth. DIVINITY (from my 1961 Betty Crocker cookbook) 2 2/3 cups sugar 2/3 cup light corn syrup 1/2 cup water 2 egg whites stiffly beaten 1 tsp vanilla 2/3 cups broken nuts Mix sugar, corn syrup and water in medium-large saugepan. Stir constantly until sugar dissolves; then cook without stirring to 260 degrees (hard ball stage) Remove from heat and pour, beating constantly, in a fine stream into the beaten egg whites. Add vanilla and continue beating until mixture holds its shape and becomes slightly dull. Fold in nuts. Drop quickly from tip of buttered spoon onto waxed paper in individual peaks.

That sounds real good Nancy, thank you for the recipe.I think I'm going to make Mint fudge later with mint extract,no mint chips in any of the stores I go to.I made your recipe for the sugared nuts....wonderful.I don't have an 8x8 pan so I doubled the recipe for all the fudge that I made and that also worked out just fine.I always make double of any fudge that I make,it won't go to waste
