How could a plump, snowball-shaped confection with the celestial name “divinity” fall completely out of favor, losing its prized spot on the Christmas dessert table in a few decades’ time? Traditionally studded with pecans and swiftly made from a few simple ingredients, divinity is a delightful turn-of-the-century heirloom worth restoring to its former lofty place. We've tweaked our usual old fashioned divinity recipe by swapping out the nuts for crushed peppermint candies. Divinity requires advance planning and dry, sunny weather to turn out well. Once made, the candies hold nicely for up to a week, so check the forecast and choose your “divinity day.”
