Han Solo Dark Chocolates with Soy Butter

My favorite things (not in any particular order):  family, friends, God, Puccini, cheese, Christmas trees, Star Wars, and chocolate.  They are even better when combined: a cheese party with friends, seeing Tosca with the hubby, the Christmas display at Church…. and now, eating Star Wars chocolates!!!

When our daughter wanted to be Chewie for Halloween, our son simply had to be Han Solo.  Proportionally they were just about the right size.  In theory, he was happy about this.  He loves Star Wars.  In practice it was a little more complicated.  He was quite upset that Han does not get to have a lightsaber!  But more importantly, he hated the hair!  I mean, HATED the hair.  As the good (albeit slightly obsessed) mom that I am, we skipped 2 haircuts so he would have nice shag do in time for Halloween.  Un-coiffed, it looked more “Luke” than “Han”, and the times we tried to style it like Han he just got REALLY upset.  So, the brain washing had to begin.

So the story goes that Chewie owes Han Solo his life.  When Han was in the Imperial Army, he refused orders to kill Chewie.  Han was discharged, and took up smuggling to make ends meet.  Chewie came along to protect Han, to pay his debt as it were.

I’m not sure a life-debt necessarily means life-long friendship, but it surely is the case with those guys. (Assuming they are translating Chewbacca’s words correctly…You know, he could be cursing up a storm, and we wouldn’t know it!  GAAAAAAAH!)   Their loyalty is fierce, like family.

Han Solo a la Mode

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:
