On May the Fourth, Caroline rounded up 7 Star Wars treats fit for a Jedi, including my all-time favorite Star Wars recipe, the Princess Leia Oreo Truffles at The Cookie Rookie. If you’re looking for something even easier — or you just have a wookiee fan in the house — be sure to click over to the whole round up to peep the Star Wars Wookiee Granola bars. So cute!
Special days like today and May the Fourth aside, Star Wars-themed parties happen all year around, which is why you should bookmark these easy Star Wars party snacks, which include the Princess Leia cupcakes above. Even if you don’t make a special treat today, you’ll want these recipes one day, I promise. That said…can you resist pulling the kids into the kitchen today to make these Easy Stormtrooper Pretzel Snacks at the Scrap Shoppe blog? The force is strong with this one.
Semi-homemade is always an easy way to have some kitchen fun with kids. If you can find them easily, pick up a pack of macarons — you’ll need chocolate ones, and white and/or grey — and use icing to doctor them like these fantastic DIY Star Wars Macarons. You can get the full tutorial at SemiSweet Designs.
It may not be sweet, but how awesome is the recipe we found for Rey’s instant bread from The Force Awakens at StarWars.com? Very. The kids will love making this!
Of course we have to throw in a healthy option, because we elders know that Jedis can’t thrive on sugar and bread alone. All you need for these clever Light Saber Fruit Skewers at Rookie Moms are things I bet you already have around the house. Perfect.
