It’s just a few hours until the premiere of the new Star Wars movie, “The Force Awakens.”
So, I had to squeeze in one last Star Wars project; homemade R2-D2 and Han Solo chocolate candies.
They’re really easy to make, but man are they cool. Of all the Star Wars food we served, these were the most popular treat at my son’s epic Star Wars birthday party.
I think one kid ate a dozen R2-D2s!

To make the candies, you will need:
- chocolate chips or baking chocolate
- white chocolate chips or candy bark
- R2-D2 silicon mold
- Han Solo in Carbonite silicon mold
- Edible ink candy decorating markers
Now, let me show you how it’s done.
We’ll star with Han Solo because he’s easier.
Be sure to follow the package directions when you’re melting chocolate or candy wafers. Different brands will have different recommendations for melting. You can either do melt them in the microwave or over a double boiler.
Just figure out the method that works best for you and stick with it.
Now, let me show you how to make the R2-D2 candies.
These are a bit more complicated because the mold is more detailed, and you’ll also want to color some of the droid’s features with the candy decorating markers.
Aren’t these just the cutest? And the yummiest?
You can get these silicon molds for other Star Wars characters and vehicles, including Darth Vader, Boba Fett, stormtroopers, the Millennium Falcon, the Death Star and the X-Wing Fighter. I wouldn’t be surprised to see our favorite droid BB-8 join the lineup.
