When our son was about 2.5 he asked me “What does Star Wars smell like?”  Now, it happens that I actually do not have a sense of smell, so I would not be able to answer a questions about what ANYTHING smells like.  But since I cry when I chop onions, I sneeze when someone wears too much perfume, and cough when I burn the chicken, I at least have some vague concept that different things smell differently.  Still, I was WAY out of my depth on the smell of Star Wars (though we have all heard about the Tauntauns stinking).  So, we asked dad (who is THE Star Wars expert in our family, and has an exceptional olfactory system to boot), but he had no idea either.

I was going to say this tastes heavenly, but I don’t think that is the correct pun for it.  Maybe that it truly belongs among the clouds?  Naah, no good either.  It is a good thing the Cloud City is a float?  Bad punch lines, good punch though.  It looks impressive, fizzes, bubbles and is very yummy.  Jedi Master Heidi (whom you will hear more about in later posts – and without whose help and creativity the M4Ps [May the Fourth be with You Parties] would never happen), helped me figure out this recipe.  It was (obviously) served it in (Han) Solo plastic cups!

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:
