Binging with Babish: Dalgona from Squid Game

Candy takes a turn for the deadly this week as we recreate the viral honeycomb candy from Squid Game, whose complex shape must be extracted to avoid a bullet to the head. The stakes are decidedly lower in real life, but as it turns out, dalgona has a few tricks up its sleeve...or I'm just very bad at making it.

    Dal Go Na literally means “it is sweet” in Korean. It’s like a statement/commentary. I recall the first time my Russian American friend asked me if I tried Dalgona coffee, I thought she was referring to some fancy European chocolate coffee drink to come find she was talking about the caramel sugar candy I used to eat as a child in South Korea for a penny. 😆

    I made like 7 of them today & only one stuck. Basically in order to be able to press it while still hot, you have to pour it onto parchment paper with sugar sprinkled on it, spray oil onto your presser & put sugar on that too before pressing it onto the honeycomb

    You have to add a little bit of sugar to make it not stick to the tool which is what they use for the original version of it. Sugar on the bottom and top. It's like using flour with bread dough but this is sugar dough. And also you don't have to use any of these methods but just a laddle and letting the dough to cool on a flat surface with wax paper to flatten it.

    This is my first time hearing anyone say the name out loud (in TikTok fashion everyone just called the coffee "whipped coffee") but I hate it and I'm still choosing to believe how I read it at first by mistake, "dangola." Sounds cooler. Easier to pronounce.

    In all fairness, I must have done a decent job on my first few tries. The first one I scorched, 2nd came out but seemed cooked a bit too much. 3rd also scorched lol. 4th set had too much baking soda, so it was very light and lost a decent amount of taste. I tried a 5th time, and all in all, was finally satisfied. It seemed like maybe a little less cooking on the sugar, but everyone else seemed to enjoy that, saying it gave a small toasted marshmallow taste.

      You don't need the dalgona set for this. Just use an old ladle, something with a flat base and grease paper. Use sugar instead of non-stick spray for better results. Also, no need to fan it to cool. If you are using a flat metal surface, the dalgona will cool off by itself.

    Actually, dalgona (달고나) just refers to the sugar + baking soda material. The real name of "Candy from Squid Game" is ppop-gi (뽑기), because it has a shape that you have to ppop-a (뽑아, or "pull out" / "extract"). FYI! : )
