Baking: Carbonite chocolate Han Solo + Chocolate Lego stormtrooper

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.

  1. Wohoo! Those Han Solo in Carbonite chocolate bars are the bomb!! Such a great idea esp for a kids’ party. It sounds like a similar thing to the HS in Carbonite jello mold I’ve seen floating around. The chocolate option is much better in my opinion (being more of a chocoholic than a jello lover, of course haha). And a fun easy project for young kids too, especially if they are huge Star Wars fans. The stormtrooper lego is pretty neat too, but looks like quite a bit of work and maybe even difficult work for a younger kid. Probably better for an older, close to teenager-age kid who would like the challenge and the creating part of it. It is pretty neat actually, and I enjoyed watching how they made it. I agree that lego can get pretty dirty, though… especially from younger kids who like to put it in their mouths or put their slobbery hands all over it (or worse, let the dog lick it haha!). A new batch of lego might be safer for a food project for sure πŸ˜€

    Now this is a cool Han Solo in Carbonite cake, looks like a lot of work, but pretty neat if you know someone who likes to make themed-cakes for parties. Looks more like a piece of art, I’d almost hate to dig my fork into it! http://shakarbakery.com/han-solo-in-carbonite-inspired-cake/

    Enjoyed this post thoroughly–surprise surprise! πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing. Now I want me a Han Solo chocolate bar!

      Hehe, really glad you liked it. There might be more coming ;). I don’t want to imagine where all the Lego bricks could have been, who or what touched them in what way, haha. Anyway, I guess the Carbonite chocolate thing is the easiest and also fastest way to do some SW-related baking :).
      BTW, there is one video I think I’m going to share that shows one should ask parents first (or check in a book) before trying that experiment, and those kids are involved as well. It’s quite hilarious ;).

  2. teenage kid, not teenager-age..HA HA Oops I’m gonna blame my auto-correct for this one πŸ™‚

    • nufafitc says:

      Either, way, I knew what you meant. The auto-correct sometimes doesn’t know what it’s doing. Same if I try to write text messages. The things it comes up with ;).
