Creamy Divinity

1 (7.25 ounce) package white frosting mix
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup boiling water
4 cups confectioner's sugar
1 cup chopped nuts

Line a 10x15 inch cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper.   Set aside. 
Beat frosting mix, corn syrup, vanilla and boiling water in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.  Mixture will be very thick, and it is helpful to use a stand mixer.
Transfer to a large bowl and gradually beat in sugar; stir in nuts.  Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto lined pan.   Let stand about 4 hours or until firm.  Turn candies over and dry at least 12 hours.
