How to make the viral Squid Game Dalgona cookie

The Dalgona cookies appear in the second round of the players’ challenges in Squid Game.

They are a popular caramelised sugar candy, most famous in South Korea.

The treat is not so sweet in the thriller series, however, as the players must separate a shape such as a circle, star or even an umbrella from the very fragile snack - but the catch is they can’t break the shape itself.

Or else - you know the drill already - the player will not make it to the next round alive.

The sweet treat has been gaining popularity over TikTok and it actually has a very simple recipe involving two ingredients - white sugar and baking soda.

Here’s the recipe:

  1. Heat a few tablespoons of sugar over high heat, stirring consistently to avoid burning and wait until it melts and caramelises.
  2. Add a pinch of baking soda and mix it in quickly.
  3. Once you have the baking soda and sugar mixture, make sure it’s gooey and pour it onto a sheet of baking paper.
  4. Flatten the mixture and use a mould to add your required shape.
  5. Now all you need to do is let the mixture harden, and you have the finished product!
