What Is the Dalgona Candy Challenge?

Not to be confused with the dalgona coffee, dalgona candy is the new challenge from Netflix’s Squid Game show. In the show, players are challenged with carving shapes of various difficulties out of Korean honeycomb candy. The mixture of sugar and baking soda makes a candy similar to toffee.

In the show, each player receives a flat dalgona in a tin with their designated shape and can only use a needle to chip away the excess candy.

On social media — from Instagram and TikTok to YouTube and Facebook — people are sharing their own recipes, creating dalgona cookies themselves, and trying to carve out shapes on their own.

How to Make a Dalgona Candy Meme

1. Add a Dalgona Candy Picture

Find a picture of a dalgona you like first. You can choose a photo from the show or any of the ones you see online.

Then, you need to find the image you want to use to set the shape of your cookie. We’ve seen some great designs, including the Starbucks logo and a photo of Colonel Harland Sanders — those are definitely more challenging! You can also try to make some Halloween dalgona candies!

2. Overlay the Photo

Now, choose the image you want to overlay on your dalgona cookie. Try to pick a pattern with a clear picture, so it looks more natural when you blend the images in a later step. It’s even easier if you choose a shape with a transparent background to make it easier to blend.

3. Blend the Image with Dalgona

Together Use the Blender tool to blend the overlay picture with the dalgona cookie. Keep playing with the adjustment settings to get the image to look as real as possible. Save your results and admire your own dalgona cookie. >> Click to Download FREE YouCam Perfect App & Try!
