Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I remember this recipe was considered absolutely delicious by most of the family. I never liked Divinity so you couldn't prove it by me. This recipe was handwritten by Gramma Moore and signed "Mom." I realize that this recipe does not have very complete instructions, like what do you do with the first half of the mixture, but this is the way Gramma wrote it.
