Old-Fashioned Divinity Candy Recipe - House of Nash Eats

See more Old fashioned divinity is a vintage recipe for a meringue-based candy that I would describe as somewhere between fudge (even though there is no chocolate in most divinity, it is often even referred to as Divinity Fudge), nougat, and marshmallow. It’s a billowy light, super-sweet, airy candy confection and it tastes…well, divine. Hence the name.
