  1. Line a 10x15 inch cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Set aside.
  2. Beat frosting mix, corn syrup, vanilla, and boiling water in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Mixture will be very thick, and it is helpful to use a stand mixer.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl and gradually beat in sugar; stir in nuts. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto lined pan. Let stand about 4 hours or until firm. Turn candies over and dry at least 12 hours. Store in an airtight container.

I have made this several times and had no trouble as long as I used "Betty Crocker Home Style Frosting Mix - Fluffy White". When I tried to used mixes from different companies it did not work. When I compared the ingredients, the BC mix has egg whites in it and the others did not so that may be the reason. My mom made this type of divinity when I was growing up and I know it came from a Betty Crocker cookbook! In San Diego, I found the mix at Albertson's and Stater Brothers markets. Contact General Mills customer service to find out if any stores in your area carry it - they gave me a list of six!


Like other suggested I reduced my water to 1/4 cup. Turned out great!


I think there must be something wrong with the amount of boiling water for this recipe - 1/2 cup seems like too much. I could not get the frosting mix, boiling water & corn syrup to whip up into anything but runny sweet syrup. I added the confectioners sugar, and continued beating. Nothing. I finally put the entire concoction in the microwave to try to boil it, hoping that it probably needed some additional heat. I then continued beating. It finally beat into something so hard that I had a hard time getting it out of the bowl and into a container. I ended up rolling the final concoction into small little balls. I feel this was a waste of ingredients, including the frosting mix, 4 cups of confectioners sugar, and 1 cup of chopping pecans! Has anyone else had problems with this recipe????
