  • 2⅔ cups (533g) granulated sugar
  • cup (227g) corn syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup pecans, finely chopped


  1. Line a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water. Heat over low heat until a candy thermometer reaches 260°F.

  3. When the sugar mixture is close to 260°F, beat the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer on high speed. Beat until stiff peaks form.

  4. Slowly pour the heated sugar mixture into the bowl of beaten egg whites. Set the mixer on high speed and beat until the mixture holds its shape (15-20 minutes).

  5. Fold in the vanilla and finely chopped pecans. Spray 2 spoons with nonstick cooking spray. Use one spoon to push the candy off the other spoon onto the lined baking sheet.

  6. Let the divinity set for about an hour before serving.
