Star War's Party ... The food continues

A few more easy food items to show you before we go onto the cupcakes!  My amazing friend April who always helps me with my crazy party planning ideas helped me made SIX yes that is right 6 character cupcakes.  We made Yoda, Princess Leia, Ewok's, Storm Troopers, R2D2 and Darth Vader.  I leave you with that teaser for today, that you will see all those works of art tomorrow.

Today we look at a few of the other food ideas that were easy to do and made the party!  For the awesome Star War's Food Labels a big Thanks goes to I'm Topsy Turvy if you go to her FB page and become a friend she has in her top bar a option that says Star War's Food Labels were you can download them for FREE (it even comes with a blank one so you can write one she may not have on there).   She also has Lego Star War's invites on there if you want!  YES she rock's like that!

Now onto my food journey!

We start with Light Saber - Chocolate covered Pretzel Rods.  This is a simple 3 item's to make.  I used the large pretzel rods for the table and Cole little helper used the little rods that we ended up using in the gift bags everyone took home!  For the table I used Red, gift bags we used blue and green.  Wilton (@ Walmart - can I say again how much I LOVE Walmart carries Wilton) had a special green that was flavored Key Lime.  I used that since the color was perfect!


Here's the mini one's Cole did for the gift bags:

What You Need:
Pretzel Rods (Found in Craft Stores or Dollar Tree)
Wilton Melts (I used Red, Blue & Green - Found at Craft Stores or Walmart)
Bags & Ties (if you want to give in gift bags)

Melt your Wilton Melts in the microwave, I found for that 1 1/2 minutes is all you need for a full bag but BECAREFUL as you saw in my post a few Christmas ago it IS possible to burn Chocolate!  When you pull out of microwave give the chocolate a stir to make it smooth.  I then dipped the pretzel rods into the chocolate and made sure all side's were coated.  I put on my Silpat sheet on a cookie sheet and put in the fridge to harden up.  If you're in a hurry you can always put in the freezer (I do that when I'm using the melts in molds and need a lot done).  If you want you can pick up some small clear bags with ties at the dollar tree (40 pk for $1) to add the small ones to a gift bag.

Next on the list was the Yoda Soda.  And like how I rolled with most of this party this is ONLY two items to make!  I found this all over Pinterest but no one listed what you needed. That was until I went to Make and Take's and found this simple recipe!

What You Need:
1 Container - Lime Sherbet 
1 2 litter -Sprite

Mix the two items together let melt a bit and it is yummy goodness!  I put mine in a container with spout thinking it would be easier to clean up then a punch bowl with a spoon.  As long as you make sure the spout is closed your good.  OH yes we had a mini clean up on isle 2 (just couldn't resist the pun).

I also had the Light Saber Fruit roll-ups, that you saw on my post here (click the link for directions on how to make).


Space Rocks or can be called Space Fish.  I used Space Rocks sine the label I had was already printed, this was just some colored Gold Fish ... EASY.


Edible Ewok's that is another simple one, just put some gummy bears in a bowl!  I know I rock, save the applause until the end please ... hehe.


Darth Vader Cookies or Wookie Cookie Crumbs.  AGAIN I used the name Darth Vader Cookies because that was a label I had already printed and I was just rolling with it.  This is just some Oreo cookies crumbled, not too crumbled either broke up into half or thirds.


Princess Leia Rolls - NOW my plan was to make homemade cinnamon rolls Saturday AM.  But when the AM came around I could barely keep my head above water so I used store bought one's which did make me a little crazy since I hate to use anything store bought if I could make it myself, but I had to go with what I had.  And good thing I ended up throwing away most of them, no one ate them :(.


Gift Bags - Most of you who know me know I hate doing gift bags especially full of candy or crap toys from the dollar store.  I did put this one together because it was simple and we had so many freaking cupcakes.  It was very simple and something nice for them to take home.


What You Need-
Gift Bags (Picked up Pk 10 for $1 at Dollar Tree)
Star War's Fruit Snacks (8 pack at Fred Meyer $1)
Light Saber Pretzel Rods (gave 2 each)
Cupcake (In a cup and in a bag - for easy transport)

Put all the items in the gift bag and you're done.  You can add a cute saying like let the Force be with You or you can print a Star War's Label and glue on each bag (I found a ton of free printables on Pinterest you could use).



Hope you all have a wonderful day!
