Dalgona (달고나 , Korean honeycomb) is believed to have appeared in the 1960's in Busan, South Korea. Comprising of only sugar and baking soda, originally it was made with glucose melted in a ladle on top of the fire. Once the sugar is fully melted, baking soda is added to produce this wonderfully sweet and spongy treat.

The CooklyBookly team wouldn’t have made it through the second game, these sweets are too yummy!

What’s the game?

In Korea, the Dalgona game is traditionally known as Ppopgi. Ppopgi which means ‘to pick’ was a very popular game in Korea during the 1960’s and 1970’s. The shape in the centre was usually a circle, star, triangle or umbrella. Children would often use a needle or toothpick to pick out the central shape. The challenge is not to break the central shape! Some vendors would even give out a second honeycomb toffee if the children were successful! For inside knowledge for how to do this easily, you’ll have to watch Squid Game!

That's it for now, stay safe and happy cooking!
