Where did Dalgona Cookies originate from?
Dalgona cookies are a sweet treat traditionally made in South Korea with honeycomb. The cookies have a shape placed into the mixture before it hardens. In the game, the outer edges must be broken off the cookie, and the inner shape must stay as a whole.
On Squid Game, the fate of having a failed attempt at breaking off the cookie’s outer pieces is deadly. However, give the recipe a go for yourself and get practicing because it’s delicious!
