How to make the Squid Game cookies

Learn how to make the viral food trend taking over TikTok

Recently TikTokers are all making the traditional Korean honeycomb biscuits from the Netflix original’s Squid Game (Warning: spoilers alert!)

For their second challenge, the players of Squid Game are given the traditional dalgona cookie and have to perfectly cut out the shape otherwise they will be eliminated. If you’re already watched the show you will know what that means.

The trend has taken over Instagram and TikTok, with it becoming known as The Squid Game Challenge and has gained much popularity since the show’s release. It could be a real winner for Netflix.

  • Pour 1 tablespoons of sugar into a pan and heat over a medium to low heat.
  • Stir until the sugar has melted and take it off the heat.

  • Once the mixture has expanded, pour onto a baking sheet.
  • Wait for it to cool slightly and use a cookie cutter to gently add whatever shape you’d like.
