In honour of the new Star Wars movie coming out, I turned to Wookiee Cookies: A Star Wars Cookbook from some fun foodie inspiration.
I choose Bossk Brownies. “Bossk was a male Trandoshan bounty hunter and the son of Cradossk who was known for hunting Wookies… Following the Battle of Hoth, Bossk would be called upon by Darth Vader to find and capture the Millennium Falcon.”
Sure, why not?! Star Wars was practically a religion in my house and even though we do not have tickets yet, we will definitely be seeing this film as soon as the box office will let us. In the meantime, I made these for our D&D group and they were a big hit..
You will need: 2/3 cup flour, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 large room temperature eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350F and butter 8” square baking dish. Sieve together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Stir with wooden spoon.
Beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a large bowl until creamy.
Beat in eggs one at a time.
Then the vanilla extract.
Add flour mixture and stir with wooden spoon until blended. Do not over-mix!
Add white chocolate.
Pour into prepared baking dish and smooth top with spatula.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack and let cool completely.
The brownies were so tender that when I tried to remove them from the pan they fell apart like the Death Star!
No problem. I cut them into pieces and took them with me to D&D.
People were quite pleased that they were Star Wars brownies and loved them.
You can also make these with butterscotch chips but I really liked the white chocolate. There was only one problem with these brownies. By the next day, they were significantly less yummy. It was so strange, I have no idea why that happened.
These are really easy to make and on the first day, some of the best brownies I have ever made. Just make sure to share them right away before their Star Wars magic disappears.
They certainly helped us during our adventure!
