This game featured on the Korean Netflix series, Squid Game has two activities in one. Number one, it is really cool to make. Took me 4 tries to get it correct. Secondly, after making the candy, the actual game is to scrape out the shape in the center of the candy using a needle.
Two ingredient recipe
Sugar 5 Tblsp
Baking Soda 1/8 tsp
Materials: stove top, sauce pan or metal candy pan, cookie cutters, round lid, parchment paper, a wooden spoon or wooden chopsticks, and measuring spoons.
1. Measure out the sugar and pour into the pan over medium heat. Stir continuously until melted. Happens in about 8-10 minutes.
2. Remove pan from heat. Stir in the baking soda rapidly. The candy will harden fast.
3. Pour out four small circles onto parchment paper.
4. Take a round lid such as one from a tea tin or cookie tin, place it over each circle and push down. Remove quickly and then immediately press in your shape. Quickly remove the shape before the candy hardens around it. (This happened to me, and I could not get the shape out without breaking the candy.) You may have noticed, that you must move fast with this recipe because the candy hardens very quickly once removed from the flame.
