1/2 cup water
2 cups sugar
1 cup nuts or coconut
1 cup white corn syrup
2 egg whites at room temperature

Directions:
Directions:
Measure water and corn syrup into medium size (2 qt.) saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Cover pan, place over heat and bring to a boil. Cook about 3 min. or until steam inside the pan has melted all the sugar crystals down from sides. Remove cover and continue cooking without stirring to a hard boil stage. Watch carefully during last stages of cooking for the temperature will rise rapidly. While syrup is cooking, beat egg whites in a large bowl (you need lots of room). Beat until they are just stiff enough to hold their shape. When syrup has reached the cooked stage, start pouring it over the egg whites in a fine stream beating vigourously with a slotted spoon or egg whip. Add the syrup a little more rapidly toward the end. Do not scrape the syrup pan. When all syrup has been added measure in vanilla, nuts or coconut. Keep on beating, changing to heavy spoon if whip seems too light. Rest between beating if you are doing it alone. Turn out into a buttered pan, let cool then cut in pieces.
