Ppopgi (Dalgona)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Servings: 1


Ingredients:

-1 tbsp brown sugar

-1 pinch baking soda

-1 tsp vegetable oil


*Equipment:

-1 ladle or extra small sauce pan

-candy sticks/skewers

-1 small silicon spatula

-1 flate plate, enamel or metal surface

-hotteok press or ceramic disk

-ppopgi milk or cookie cutter mold


Directions:

*Before you start:

-Coat a pan or a metal/stone/enamel surface with a bit of vegetable oil. Coat the hotteok press or any ceramic/metal/plate/pan that you can use to press the melted sugar with oil as well. Have these 2 items and spatula ready next to your stove.


  1. Place the sugar in a large ladle and heat it over the stove, using medium heat. Cook the sugar for 3-5 minutes, being careful not to burn it. You want a light caramel consistency, stirring occasionally with chopsticks to prevent lumps.

  2. When you feel the texture is smooth and you are satisfied with its color, add a pinch of baking soda and mix quickly. Move the ladle one more time back onto the heat of the stove and heat it quickly for a few seconds (5-10 seconds), until the sugar mixture starts to puff up. It will make everything change to a creamy brown tone.

  3. Move the mix to the pressing surface (*sprinkle sugar on the surface if desired). Pour all the caramel on top of it. Put a skewer or lollipop stick in the lower center of the candy and press hard with a flat object or oiled hotteok press that's essential if you don't want any bumps.

  4. Promptly take a cookie cutter and press hard on the center and stamp the figure you like. (*no cookie cutters or molds? You can use a skewer or chop sticks and make a desired shape)

*The hardest part about making this candy is the pressing down and making an indentation into the mold. It is not necessary to have a design)
