Woohooo, thanks Robin! My mom used to make this stuff up until her old mixer bit the dust. After that her dear friend (and an angel in every sense of the word) gave us a big plate of it every Christmas. One bite and you'll know why it is called "Divinity"... you'll think you've died and gone to heaven! Aw, I miss this stuff!
