Jell-O Divinity

Jell-O Divinity is divine! A plus is that, depending upon the color Jell-O used, you can tailor it to any holiday season.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. 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. Either pour into a pan or drop by spoonsful onto a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
