May The Force Be With You



Happy Starwars Day!

My kids love Starwars and so I could not pass up making a special lunch today. My 3 year old daughter was a little hard to win over but once I mentioned that Starwars has a princess even she was on board. Plus, she made sure none of the melted chocolate left overs went to waste ;)

I made Yoda, Princess Leia, Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader. All with melted chocolate, candy eyes and fruit leather.


The first lunch Anakin Skywalker. I drew his face on whole wheat honey bread with melted milk chocolate and added candy eyes and a small piece of fruit leather for the scar. Also packed are strawberries, crackers and two light saber picks with blueberries.


The second lunch is Darth Vader. He is drawn on whole wheat honey bread with milk and dark chocolate. Also packed are strawberries, crackers and light saber picks with blueberries.


The third lunch is a Princess Leia lunch. I drew her with melted milk chocolate and added candy eyes and fruit leather blush and lipstick. Also packed are strawberries and light saber picks with blueberries on crackers.


The fourth lunch is a Yoda lunch. This lunch is not dye-free since the chocolate I used contains green food coloring. I love Yoda and had to make him. I just found a great company that make natural food coloring so next time I would use white chocolate and add some natural color!
 I drew Yoda with melted green chcolate melts and mixed in melted white chocolate for the details. Yoda also has candy eyes :) As  above this lunchbox also contains strawberries, crackers and two light saber picks with blueberries.

As always the kids all have ice water and yogurt as well :)
