From Jabba’s Favorite Decoration to Our Favorite Dessert: Han Solo Chocolate Carbonite Bark!


In The Empire Strikes Back, the iconic scene of Han Solo being lowered into a carbonite freezing chamber was a test to see if Luke Skywalker would survive the process. While the procedure was a success, it had its side effects.

Here we’ve attempted a much more delightful solidifying process with the use of decadent dark chocolate. Chocolate hibernating Solos are set in a galaxy of swirling space systems and candy stars, making for a much more pleasant slumber.

Chocolate Carbonite Bark

What You’ll Need:

  • Han Solo Carbonite silicone mold

Chocolate Solo Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces dark chocolate

Bark Ingredients:

  • 1 pound dark chocolate
  • 4 ounces turquoise candy melts
  • 4 ounces lavender candy melts
  • 2 ounces white candy melts
  • Silver star sprinkles
  • Edible gold luster dust

Step 1: Prep a quarter-sheet with parchment or a silpat.

Step 2: Place the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl and microwave at 15-20 second intervals until melted. Spoon evenly into the silicone mold, tapping to release excess air bubbles. Place in the freezer to set.

Step 3: In a double boiler, start melting the pound of dark chocolate.

Step 4: Melt the turquoise, lavender, and white candy melts in separate bowls in the microwave.

Step 5: Pour the melted dark chocolate onto the prepped baking sheet, using an offset spatula to spread it evenly.

Step 6: Add spoonfuls of the melted turquoise, lavender, and white candy melts onto the dark chocolate layer. Use a toothpick to swirl the colors together.

Step 7: Add star sprinkles.

Step 8: Remove the chocolate Solos from their molds and place randomly onto the chocolate.

Step 9: Place in the freezer until solid.

Step 10: Dust with gold luster dust before breaking apart to serve.

No need to put Captain Solo in the cargo hold. A dessert plate will do.
