Helen’s Divinity

“One of my Dad’s favorites that his Mom would make while he was growing up. I tried to make these one rainy afternoon. I didn’t realize that divinity was so sensitive to temperature and humidity. I ended up with a sticky, gooey blob of sugary mess! So only try to make this on clear, dry days.” – April Ferre
