Mooching around the internet this morning (whilst waiting for coverage of day two of Olympic Dressage to start) I came across this idea for 'Han Solo encased in carbonite cookies' and I'm rather smitten by them.
Star Wars has been part of my life for as long as I can remember; I remember queuing up to go and watch the Empire Strikes Back when I was little and feeling utterly BEREFT when Han Solo was encased in carbonite, destined to be a unique piece of wall art in Jabba the Hut's palace!
Listening to Chewie HOWLING with despair at having lost his friend was just too much and it remains one of the most emotive scenes I've ever seen on the big screen.
My youngest son is Star Wars bonkers and at some point, I'm sure, will want a Star Wars themed party and then these' Han Solo encased in carbonite' cookies will be able to take centre stage.
But until then, they'd make a great little something-to-do-during-the-summer-holidays project.
The silicone mould the chocolate top of the cookies uses, can be bought for on Amazon and Firebox for £6.49, there are also R2-D2 ones too - R2-D2 is one of my most favourite Star Wars characters, he'd make great cookies too.
Happy Star Wars Cookie Baking!
