By now you’ve probably heard of Squid Game on Netflix because it seems to be all anyone is talking about.
If you’ve seen the show, you are familiar with one of the games that involves players having to remove a piece of cookie (a design) out of a larger cookie.
It isn’t as easy as it may seem since the cookie made from a fragile candy substance made with dalgona.
No, it isn’t the same as Dalgona coffee – – it is actually a Korean type of candy that rose in popularity after the Korean War.
If you’re looking to recreate the Squid Game Cookies, say no more. For starters, you can get the iconic Squid Game Umbrella Cookie Cutter here.
How To Make Squid Game Cookies
- 2 Tablespoons white or brown sugar
- A pinch (about 1/8 teasppon of baking soda
- Chopstick or knife to stir the mixture
- Non-stick baking sheet
- Cookie Cutter (you can use round, triangle, umbrella, etc.)
Heat the sugar over medium heat until the sugar begins to caramelize.
Once it is heated, add a pinch of baking soda and stir until frothy.
Remove from heat and pour onto a non-stick baking sheet and use the backend of a pan to gently press the mixture into a flattened circle.
Hurry and take your cookie cutter and gently push down (not all the way through) on the mixture and allow to harden.
Once hardened, you can play the Squid Game by trying to remove the design in the candy without breaking the entire piece.
