Survival Sweets: Deadly Delights - Red Light, Green Light Cookies


The article discusses a recipe for making Squid Game-inspired cookies called Dalgona cookies. These cookies are inspired by the popular Netflix series "Squid Game" and are named after a Korean candy called Dalgona.

The author starts by mentioning the immense popularity of the series and the impact it has had on people worldwide. They then go on to explain the concept behind Dalgona cookies. These cookies are not only delicious to eat but also resemble the iconic shapes and colors seen in the show. The cookies have different colors and are shaped like the symbols from the 'Squid Game' such as the star, triangle, umbrella, square, and circle.


The article then provides a step-by-step guide on how to make Dalgona cookies at home. The recipe includes ingredients like butter, powdered sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, flour, cocoa powder, and food coloring. The author explains the process of making the cookie dough and dividing it into different portions for coloring. They also suggest using a star-shaped cookie cutter to give the cookies the desired shape.

Next, the article discusses the importance of chilling the cookie dough before baking. This helps in preventing the cookies from spreading too much and losing their shape during baking. The cookies are then baked in the oven until they are firm and slightly golden around the edges.

Once the cookies are baked and cooled, the article suggests using royal icing to decorate them. Royal icing can be prepared by mixing confectioners' sugar and egg whites until smooth. The author recommends using food coloring to make different colored icings for each cookie shape.
