When we found this Han Solo in Carbonite silicone mold we tried to figure out what to make with it – something worthy of its coolness. Banana bread and brownies didn’t work; the details from the mold just did not show up in our baked goods. No luck with ice cream either. Melted Chocolate however, worked like a charm. But who should eat a 3 lb. Han Solo chocolate bar? Certainly not us! (Notice we did not ask who COULD!). Here is what we came up with instead:
- Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite Silicone Tray
- Brownie Mix (and probably egg and vegetable oil or butter, check your brownie mix)
- Bag of Chocolate Chips (Trader Joe’s is our favorite, it molds really well)
- Caramel Sauce
- Ice Cream
- Melt a bag of milk chocolates in the microwave.
- Pour chocolate in the mold, and let it cool in the fridge over night.
- The next morning, carefully take the chocolate out of the mold, wrap it in plastic wrap, and put it back in the fridge.
- Clean, dry and grease the mold, mix and pour in the brownie mixture. (Leave some space at the top, so it does not overflow while baking)
- Put the silicone mold on a baking sheet and bake per instructions on box.
- Let cool a bit, remove from mold, then cut any protruding parts to make the brownie a smooth “brick.”
- Cover the brownie with caramel sauce.
- Place the molded Han Solo chocolate on top.
- Serve immediately, with ice cream.
Note, if the brownie is still warm when you place the Han Solo chocolate on top, it will melt a little. It does not looks quite as nice, but it makes it much easier to cut, and much gooier to eat….though you do have to serve it immediately. If you prefer, you can wait until the brownie is room temperature before adding the caramel and molded chocolate. If you do, plan ahead, and make the Han Solo molded chocolate as thin as you can make it, that way the brownie is easier to cut.
