10 Super Cool Star Wars Desserts for the Geek in All of Us
We're pretty sure the Star Wars craze is never gonna slow down, and we're not complaining. With the opportunity to visit Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and even some of the series' filming locations, there's a lot of adventure to pick from. But if you're not quite ready to venture out yet, there's plenty of adventure to be had at home!
We can't wait to add some of the Vera Bradley Star Wars collection to our closet, try out some Princess Leia-inspired hair and celebrate the best way we know how: with cute desserts. In honor of Star Wars Day (May 4th), chow down on a few of these themed desserts while you rewatch all the films. From stormtrooper marshmallow pops to a scary sarlacc cake, these 10 super cool Star Wars treats are sure to please everyone — whether you're using the dark chocolate or white chocolate side of The Force.
These cupcakes are all about the decorations. Flattened gumdrops are perfect for making facial features and Luke's classic sideswept hair. Add lightsabers by wrapping a pretzel stick with a strip of gumdrop and attach it to the side of the cupcake with frosting. (via Betty Crocker)
Grab a food-safe marker and a bag of jumbo marshmallows. These tasty troopers are just as much fun to make as they are to eat. Insert a lollipop stick into each one and display. (via Catch My Party)
Repurpose your Star Wars action figures by turning them into cake toppers. These would be great for a low-key birthday party and are something you can whip up in minutes. Attach the candles with tightly wrapped rubber bands and let the battle begin.
This sarlacc-inspired cake is terrifying and delicious at the same time. The buttery bunt cake is drizzled with caramel syrup before being covered in Biscoff cookie crumbs to complete the creepy creation. Since real sarlacci don't have teeth, feel free to skip those and stay true to the movie — or run with it, since they're fun to make. Just don't get too scared to dig in. (via Yummy Crumble)
The great thing about these truffles is that they aren't supposed to look perfect. Make your own gray candy melts by adding a tiny drop of black food coloring (a little goes a long way!) to melted white chocolate. Use the back of a pen or paintbrush to make small holes in the sides of the truffles. (via Tastefully Frugal)
Pull out your gingerbread cookie cutter, because it's time whip up some wookie cookies. Use the prongs on a fork to make the cookies look hairy before baking. The minimal amount of frosting involved means these cookies are easy enough for anyone to conquer. (via Nifty Spoon)
Pretzel sticks become lightsabers when you dip them in chocolate and add a printed paper handle. Stay with one color or go the multi-colored route and stick to the eight colors mentioned in the movies. Die-hard fans and newbies alike will go nuts for these. (via I Should Be Mopping the Floor)
Sometimes just adding a catchy sign next to normal food like fruit kabobs is all it takes. (via Catch My Party)
Green jello is a simple way to please. Suspend your favorite character in a block of the carbonite to solidify the theme and add to your decor. Then dig in and enjoy. (via Catch My Party)
