Microwave Divinity

This is awesome. I was impressed with how easy it is to make. It tastes the same as the kind made on the stove top.
Microwave Divinity
3 c. sugar
2/3 c. water
1/2 c. white Karo syrup
2 egg whites
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

1 c. chopped pecans
Mix the sugar, water and syrup in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 13 minutes (don't stop and stir it). While it is cooking, beat the egg whites and salt in your mixer until stiff. Then when the syrup is done, slowly beat it into the egg whites. When the mixture is not shiny any more, mix in the vanilla and the nuts. Quickly spoon it onto wax paper. Let it cool.


  1. I have never attempted to make divinity but enjoyed trying this recipe. It really works and was quick!

  2. What wattage is the microwave you used? Mine is 1000 watts and I don't want to cook it too long
