Cherry Divinity

Ingredients:

2 Egg whites

3 cups white sugar

¾ cup water

¾ cup light corn syrup

3 ounce packet cherry gelatin

Directions:

Add the egg whites to a metal or glass bowl and allow to come to room temperature. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine the white sugar, water, and light corn syrup in a heavy saucepan and heat without stirring, until the thermometer records a temperature of 250 degrees. Just before the candy reaches the desired temperate, turn on the stand mixer and begin to beat the egg, so that it foams. When foamy, sprinkle in the cherry gelatin and continue to beat until the mixture can form stiff peaks. With the stand mixer still running (at high speed), pour the hot candy mixture in slowly and carefully. Beat for approximately 5 minutes. Drop spoonfuls on to the cookie sheets. Leave at room temperature overnight to set before transferring to an airtight container.
