  1. Hey guys here is the posted Mrs. Chisholm’s Divinity link, they are fantastic I love this recipe light and fluffy and not too sweet!

  2. I have to say this is the first recipe from PPQ that was not only extremely frustrating while making it, but also turned out to be a complete failure. What a bummer!! I was mixing for 20 minutes or more and it was still just as runny as when I started–and the pecans were so pulverized that the mixture was no longer a lovely white, but a yellowish color with lots of pecan specks in it. I guess I’ll have to try again in the next few days, but for now, I have to put it aside.

    …and I have a feeling I’m going to be finding hardened sugar on me and around my kitchen for days…..

    • Discussing the divinity failure with my mother, who is from south Georgia and knowledgeable in all things Southern Candy, she suggested it was the humidity. I immediately scoffed at the idea because I live in SoCal and it’s been so dry lately that my sinuses have been miserable. but I just checked the weather….I’m shocked to say it’s been almost 95% humidity at night here! and what’s more, it’s going to stay that way, so I’m stuck in the divinity void for a little while 😦 I was so looking forward to making it!

  3. It’s almost always humid here in Dallas so after I picked it I was a bit concerned but I was lucky and the weather in Texas for once cooperated!
