A Christmas Favorite
Regardless of what you think about Ms. Paula Deen these days, her mama’s divinity is really all you have to make when it comes to holiday “cookies”. Divinity, also known as divinity fudge, is a sweet candy confection composed primarily of sugar, but don’t let that fool you. Though the candy appears to look like meringue, complete with curled peaks. The texture of the candy is light and fudge-like.

Line a serving tray with foil so that the handles are not covered. If your serving tray has sides that come up around the edges of it, you’ll only need to line the bottom of it with foil. If your serving tray is of the flatter variety, I recommend wrapping the foil around the sides of the tray and then taping the foil to the bottom of the tray so that the foil doesn’t slip around.
