Troubleshooting When Making Divinity Candy
I was wondering, how long does divinity need to set out before done? I put it on wax paper like it said and its been out for 4 hrs now and its 5pm and it hasn't hardened yet..
Its got to the point where it feels like the marshmallow stuff in a can but not as hard as I usually see them.. I can't even turn them over yet cause they're still sticky..
Any ideas on how long it will take before they start to get hard so I can turn them over?
I'm sure it's much too late for this answer to your question to be of any help to you. What did you end up doing with your divinity candy? Did it finally set for you?
Making divinity candy can be very tricky and challenging. One of the most important tips is to only attempt making divinity when the weather is cool and dry. If there is too much moisture or humidity in the air, you are bound to have trouble.
Some divinity recipes seem to be easier than others as far as their reliability for success. Does anyone have a "full proof divinity recipe" that they'd like to share? Please add it below if you do.
It usually takes divinity about 2 hours or so to set. If you find that you have the same trouble next time you attempt making divinity candy, and it just isn't setting, here's a little something you can try.
Place the divinity in the oven on a low heat (about 250 F.) for 15-30 minutes (as needed) until it sets to your desired consistency.
Anyone else have any divinity candy making tips?
