I haven’t always been a hardcore Star Wars fan but, like my children, I’ve recently become a serious Star Wars geek. Maybe it’s watching the old movies again with them—and seeing how magical they still are for them—or maybe it’s that I loved The Force Awakens. Either way, it hardly matters, because I’m in. In fact, I plan on surprising my kids with one of these Star Wars snacks this afternoon, and then probably again over the weekend as we start watching the whole series. All over again.
May the Fourth be with you—and with your snack time, too.

DIY Star Wars Macarons | SemiSweet
Buy some macarons at the market or your local bakery and turn them into something out of this world with the awesome tutorial we found at SemiSweet on how to make DIY Star Wars Macarons (above & top). So fun.
You may not be able to have the Star Wars light-up Lightsaber Popsicle Molds that we found at Think Geek in hand today, but you can tell the kids that they are on order as a Fourth treat. The treat for you? They’re on sale right now.
I can’t image that your child would choose toast over popsicles, but this Darth Vader toaster that we also found at Think Geek is pretty amazing. Maybe don’t tell the kids about this one in advance and then surprise them the morning after it arrives or make super cool cinnamon sugar (or Nutella?) toast as an afternoon snack. Mmm.
