Servings 4 People


  • Metal soup ladle or metal pan
  • Silicone baking mat or parchment paper any heat resistant cookie tray will work
  • Dough or burger press, or flat object such as the bottom of a pot, pan, bowl or cup
  • Wooden chopstick, or metal or wooden spoon
  • Cookie cutters


  • 4 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1/16 Tablespoons Baking Soda Do NOT use baking powder, 1/16 tbsp is a heavy pinch


  • Put some sugar in the soup ladle or pan, and heat it on a stovetop over medium-high. Consistently stir the sugar with a wooden chop stick or spoon so it melts evenly. Stir until there are no chunks left and the sugar has turned into a creamy, brownish liquid, almost amber in color.
    Important: Make sure that the sugar does not burn, otherwise the biscuit will taste very bitter afterwards. Control the heat by moving the ladle repeatedly up and down over the heat.
  • Once the sugar is completely melted, remove from heat and add your pinch of baking soda. Stir consistently as the color changes to a creamy golden beige and becomes fully mixed.
  • Dust some sugar on your silicone mat (or parchment paper or tray). Carefully and slowly pour the sugar/baking soda liquid into small cookie sized circles.
  • Press the hot dough with a smooth, flat object to spread out it evenly and give it a rounded shape. This will make your cookies nice and round, and flat on top.
  • Using a cookie cutter, press a figure in the middle of the dough gently. Do NOT press the mold all the way through the cookie.
    The harder you press, the easier it is to release the mold from the rest of the cookie later. If you want to try the Squid Game yourself, you can also make it more exciting by only applying light pressure to the cookie mold so it is more difficult to remove the extra cookie later.
    After placing the mold, you should wait about a minute for the dough to harden. Then the "Squid Game" can begin or you can simply enjoy the biscuit.
