This divinity is so easy to make in the microwave and so good. You won’t ever make it any other way again! Makes a great gift, too. This recipe is adapted from a Sharp Carousel Microwave Cookbook that came with my first microwave many years ago.2 cups white granulated sugar 1/3 cup water 1/3 cup light corn syrup 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 egg whites 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup pecans or nuts of your choice, chopped Combine sugar, water, corn syrup and salt in a glass casserole dish. Cover with saran wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Remove from microwave and take off saran wrap. Stir well and return to microwave uncovered. Cook on high for another 4 to 5 minutes until reaches hard ball stage when a little is dropped in cold water. Remove and cool about 4 minutes. Beat egg whites until stiff with mixer. Pour sugar mixture over egg whites beating constantly with mixer until mixture starts to lose its gloss and holds together. About 4 or 5 minutes. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Drop by teaspoonful onto wax paper. Makes about 25 pieces depending on size you make them. Enjoy! Note: To clean glass bowl you used in microwave soak in warm soapy water immediately after emptying sugar mixture.
