Neighbor Gifts? Divinity - The Mixer Killing Candy
Have you ever been tempted by those 6 dollar hand mixers in the store? Well, okay maybe you have not. Let me tell you why I was tempted by one and may be tempted again. One word. Divinity. Fluffy pillows of goodness.
Years ago I made divinity in my kitchen aid and took out the highest gear. (Over the years Divinity has been the undoing of several of my mother's stand mixers.) Divinity is a mixers nemesis. It is the most brutal cruel thing you can do to a mixer.
Making Divinity is like driving an old car up a mountain in 100 plus degree weather. But, with Divinity a mixer can be new and sustain damage. If the mixer begins to strain, shut it off and begin spooning the Divinity. (I have a tendency to miss it losing it's gloss and stop there. Duh.) I cooked mine today because I didn't. Ugh.
So, I am off to buy another hand mixer so that I can make more divinity.
