After having such a long period of gaming news, it’s time again for some baking, with a carbonite chocolate Han Solo and chocolate Lego stormtrooper.
Did you remember those over-the-top cakes by Ann Reardon’s How to Cook That? The Star Wars Millennium Falcon cake and Chocolate Chewbacca? Then you’d probably not be surprised to learn that her sons are in the baking business as well.
First up we have a Carbonite chocolate Han Solo. This is actually a pretty easy recipe, as one only needs the molds and pours chocolate into them. It’s questionable if one can actually call this a recipe, but at least it’s easy to make. Easier than to listen to the horrible music and the hipster video bro presentation.
If this recipe was too easy for you and you can still stomach that music and cool-as-whatever attitude, then maybe the Chocolate Lego Stormtrooper is more your thing. To be honest, I think it’s a bit too much, especially with the final paintbrush job. I’m not sure how healthy all these ingredients are, but I’d also be careful about using real Lego bricks. At least the ones I remember weren’t always clean, and as they’re used for playing, one might want to give them a clean up first.
What do you think about these recipes? Any alternatives you might know of? I’d also be interested what your opinion is about those hipster too-cool-to-be-true baking videos, especially with kids.
