Recipe for Iell-O Divinity


    Jell-O Divinity

    3 cups granulated sugar
    3/4 cup cold water
    2 egg whites
    1 cup chopped nuts
    3/4 cup white Karo syrup
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 (3 ounce) box Jell-O (flavor desired)
    1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

    Combine sugar, syrup, water and salt in heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring continually until it boils. Cook without stirring to a hard boil. Remove from heat and put into a bowl. Place the bowl in an ice bath and add Jell-O, mixing well to dissolve completely.

    Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

    After the Jell-O mixture has cooled to room temperature in the ice bath, gently fold in the stiffly-beaten egg whites. Add the marshmallows and nuts. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
