A few things that they have asked from me is my MUST have Holiday recipe. Well being the candy loving girl I am I shared my mom’s fudge recipe on
The next challenge was to come up with a funny holiday disaster story… this contemplation brought up this story that I am sharing with all of you.
I have loved the homemade candies from the holidays since my aunt would give our family a LOVELY tray of sweet goodness each year. So, the tradition of holiday candy making for me was born. My favorite candy from that tray was the fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth white mounds of divinity. My mother had always said it was VERY hard to make and so I was terrified to try it. Once married and living 2000+ miles from my mother and family, I endeavored to try my hand at this divinity challenge.
My first attempt was highly successful so my courage was bolstered, however, the next year did not end so well. I was left with what to do with the ‘divinity soup’ and due to my thrifty nature, this mess was not going to be disposed of, oh NO way! I handed out many spoons to each of our perplexed guests and family. While they all obliged me (their hostess) by dipping in their spoons and testing out the ingredients, I tried not to make eye contact as we passed around the bowl of white, sticky, soupy ‘divinity’.Each year I try again, playing with my recipe and taking into account the humidity in the air, sometimes with success and others not so much but I haven’t resorted to sharing my holiday treat bags with ‘spoon divinity’ again.
