Servings: 8 to 10 servings
Prep Time: 45 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Moderate

Ingredients Add to grocery list

2 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
3   egg whites
3/4 cup cold water
1 cup white corn syrup
4 cup sugar


In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, and water.  Stir only until sugar has dissolved. Do not stir after this point. Cook syrup mixture until it reaches 250 degrees on a candy thermometer, bringing it to a hard ball stage.
While the syrup is cooking, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Once the sugar mixture reaches 250 degrees, carefully pour a slow steady stream of syrup into the stiffly beaten egg whites, beating constantly at high speed. Add the vanilla and continue to beat until mixture holds its shape, approximately 5 minutes.  Stir in pecans.
Using two spoons, drop the divinity onto waxed paper, using one spoon to push the candy off the other.  This may take a little practice because the technique is to twirl the pushing spoon, making the candy look like the top of a soft serve ice cream.  If the candy becomes too stiff, add a few drops of hot water.  You will need to work fast when making this type of candy.
Let sit for 30 minutes and serve.

Roasted Garlic Chicken Puffs


This is a relatively easy recipe to prepare with only ten minutes required for complete preparation using a convection oven.


2 oz cream cheese 
1 lb chicken breast 
1/2 c shredded swiss 
1/2 c cheddar cheese, shredded sharp 2 
Tbsp garlic minced 
2 tsp chives 
1/2 c green onions
4+ cans of the large flaky rolls


First the chicken is well cooked and afterwards fragmented in neat portions. While the chicken is being cooked the minced garlic is added until the garlic reaches a well-developed brown colour. 

The other ingredients which were not mentioned yet are put together in a mixing bowl with the aforementioned warm chicken integrated with them. When a dense filling is achieved, 2-3 tablespoons are spooned into canned crescent rolls and cooked as expressed on the can.

It is best to have the rolls crammed with the filling oozing from both edges. Also, it is strongly recommended to buy 4 cans of rolls as minimum since the mixture created can serve a lot of people.
