How to make the honeycomb cookies from Squid Game: an easy recipe to create your very own Dalgona biscuits.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last month, we're guessing you - like the rest of the world - are obsessed with new Netflix series Squid Game.

The Korean-language thriller tells the story of a group of 456 strangers who agree to compete in some deadly children's games in the hopes of winning the equivalent of £38 million cash.

As well as reeling from the astronomical number of deaths, many viewers have become intrigued by the delicious-looking cookies that were the stars of game two...

**Spoilers ahead**

The second round saw the contestants asked to select a shape - out of triangle, star, umbrella, and circle - before being told that they would be carving that shape out of a cookie, and those who broke the biscuit would be shot.

  • Add a dash of baking soda to the melted sugar, and stir until it begins to expand
  • Pour the mixture onto baking paper
  • Wait about 30 seconds or so for it to cool and then use your cookie cutter to add whatever decoration you like
