Wintertime Goodies Gift

Hiya! So for my wintertime gifts for friends and family, I'm assembling goodie boxes for them with some yummy vegan candies, cookies, and other treats.

I'm certainly going to try my hand at some Vegan Divinity (wish me luck!), but am wondering if anyone has any other super delicious recipes to share! 'Tis the season for yummmmm, afterall.


2 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons of milled flax seed with 6 tablespoons of water (mix it well and let the sit for 1 to 2 minutes.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans or candied cherries for holidays

Be sure to make divinity on a dry day; candy will not harden on a humid day. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, heat sugar, salt, syrup and water to boiling, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.

Set candy thermometer in place and continue cooking over medium low heat, not stirring, until the temperature reaches 266°. When the temperature reaches 260° beat the flax mixture with electric mixer at high speed. While beating, pour the hot syrup slowly into the mixture. Beat for about 2 to 3 minutes, until mixture isn't glossy. Add vanilla and turn to low speed. Continue beating until the mixture holds its shape when dropped from a spoon. It will probably be too thick for the mixer at this point. Stir in pecans or chopped candied cherries with a wooden spoon. With a lightly buttered teaspoon, drop onto waxed paper. Work as quickly as possible. If mixture gets too thick to work with, add a few drops of water. Let stand until dry. Store in tightly covered containers.
