Divinity Kisses

I love making homemade candy for holiday gifts. Divinity Kisses would make a delicious gift for any age. Place in airtight container and dress with a beautiful bow and you have a quick and yummy gift.

2 ½ cups sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup water
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cups pecans, chopped
30 milk chocolate kisses

Step 1: Combine corn syrup, sugar, water and salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan.
Step 2: Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat; stir until sugar dissolves.
Step 3: Cook, covered, over high heat until steam washes sugar crystals from side of the pan.
Step 4: Cook, uncovered, to 260 degree on candy thermometer or hard-ball stage; do not stir.
Step 5: Beat egg whites in mixing bowl until very stiff peaks form.
Step 6: Add hot syrup to egg whites; beating constantly until stiff.
Step 7: Beat in vanilla extract.
Step 8: Mix in pecans.
Step 9: Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
Step 10: Press a chocolate kiss into center of each candy.
Step 11: Let stand until cool and firm.
Step 12: Store in airtight container.
Yield: 2 ½ dozen.
