Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Making divinity is best done with an upright mixer (as opposed to a hand mixer) because of the need to add ingredients slowly. Also, it should be made in dry weather and not when it is raining as it won't dry to the right consistency. This is candy that I made for Christmas when my family was at home. Since we almost never had candy at other times of the year, this was a special treat reserved for Christmas.
