    Ingredients

    1 cup sugar
    2/3 cup light corn syrup
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 tablespoon butter or margarine
    Method
    Butter a large platter or jelly roll pan. Combine sugar, corn syrup, water
    and cream of tartar in medium sized heavy saucepan. Bring to boiling over
    medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil mixture without stirring until candy
    thermometer registers 266°F. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and butter
    or margarine. Pour into prepared platter or pan. Let candy stand until cool
    enough to handle. Butter hands. Gather up candy; pull between hands until it
    becomes satiny and light in color. Pull into large strips; twist. Cut into
    1 inch pieces with scissors. To store, wrap each candy in plastic wrap and
    place in air tight container.

    I would love to try candy making. I would have to sample it all make sure it is okay. and no one would ever be able to receive it.it would be gone. I would love to try to make divinty but i have always heard it was the hardest candy to make. i don't think i have ever had it. My mom use to make stained glass fudge have you ever heard of that. She use to do all of that stuff. LOL
