A Sticky Mess!

1:11 PM

I tried to make Divinity today.  I'm not sure why.  I'm most certainly not a good candy  maker.  Cake, pies and cookies are my best.  I used Paula Deen's recipe.  Mine looks nothing like hers.   I'm not sure where I messed up.  Most likely it is the altitude.  Or it could just be my impatience.  Or it could be a faulty candy thermometer.  The sugar boiled for a good 20 minutes and it never got hotter than 225 degrees.

I have four cookie sheets of round white oozing circles of sweetness.

Looks like someone was on the counter that shouldn't have been.  I didn't necessarily catch her, but I know it was Winston.  She was the one licking her paws!  

There's a reason I let others make Christmas candy.

Have a great day!

  1. Sounds like your altitude Jen. I have a recipe for no fail divinity that I will have to find and post for you. In the mean time you could add a lot of nuts to your candy and make something similar to a nut roll.

  2. Looks like you have the incriminating evidence :)

    P.S. Thanks for popping over to my blog today after my visit to yours. May I become your newest follower??


  3. I am not familiar with that kind of candy, now I want to try some! If you find a good recipe please tell me! It's a good sign if kitty likes it!

  4. LOL!!! I don't know this candy either, but it looks sweet and yummy!

  5. Hey Jen, I posted a recipe for you today, thought you might like to try it, please read the tips, there is one in there about high altitude. :)
