From your description, you might be talking about "divinity," which is made from egg whites and, often, topped with a piece of nut.
Divinity doesn't contain condensed milk, but it is very white and fluffy.
No,,It wasnt divinity,,Just about as i explained,,she also made some xmas trees made about the same way but they were shaped like xmas trees then she would roll them in green colored cocconut and dip bottoms in chocolate!
4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine all four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until it reaches 236 degrees Farenheit on a candy thermometer (soft ball stage).
Remove buttercream mixture from heat and place the bottom of the pan in a sink of cold water to cool.
Stir well until the candy firms up. Roll into balls or other shapes and place on a waxed paper covered tray and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
Melt together 2 cups of chocolate chips or pieces and 1 Tablespoon of chocolate over a double boiler stirring constantly until smooth. You could also use the microwave if you stir every 30 seconds and DO NOT OVERHEAT.
