Caramel Divinity Roll

2 c Sugar
1/2 c Light corn syrup
1/2 c Water (for divinity)
2 Egg whites
1/4 t Salt
1/2 c Red & green candied cherries
- finely chopped
14 oz Caramels
1 tb Water (for caramels)
6 oz Pecans -- chopped

Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a medium-size heavy saucepan. Heat quickly to boiling, stirring constantly. Wrap a fork with damp paper toweling; wipe the sugar crystals from the side of the pan as the mixture cooks. Reduce to 260 degrees on a candy thermometer. (A teaspoonful of syrup will form a hard ball when dropped in cold water.) When syrup reaches 250 degrees, beat egg whites and salt until they stand in firm peaks in a large bowl of electric mixer. Beating constantly, pour hot syrup VERY SLOWLY into egg whites. Continue beating until mixture is very stiff, and will hold marks of beater in mixtures (about 7 minutes).

Stir in candied fruits until well distributed. Turn out mixture onto a buttered cookie sheet; divide in half; shape each half into a roll 2" wide and 8" long. Allow to dry on cookie sheet about 1 hour.

Melt caramels with water in the top of a double boiler, over hot water, stirring several times.

Spread pecans on a large sheet of wax paper. Working with one roll at a time, spread with caramel mixture; roll in pecans to coat well.

Wrap each roll in foil or plastic; store at room temperature. Cut about 1/4" thick slices.

Makes 2 1/2 pounds or about 5 dozen slices.
