I am a confirmed themed party food nerd, so I made sure that all the menu items for the Star Wars party had appropriately dorky names. The food was all relatively low-maintenance and inexpensive too, from the burgers to the no-bake cookies. I hope you can take some of these ideas and use them for your Star Wars birthday party!
STAR WARS PARTY FOOD MENU
Han Burgers – Frozen burger patties I cooked in the crock pot, served on buns with all the fixins
Vader Taters – French fries from a local diner
Millenium Falcorn – Steam in the bag corn
Storm Trooper Scoopers – Scoop-shaped corn chips and salsa
Carbonite Jello – My son’s Han Solo toy encased in gelatin
Yoda Soda – A special swampy green punch (recipe below)
Dark Side Chocolate Cake – Dark chocolate cake from a box because I can’t bake cakes from scratch
C3P Oreo Ice Cream – Cookies ‘n’ Cream ice cream
Wookie Cookies – Standard peanut butter and chocolate no-bake cookies
Qui Gon Jin-gerbread Stars – Pilsbury refrigerated gingerbread cookies cut into stars
Endor Trail Mix – A sweet, Ewok-themed snack
I designed the food signs using PicMonkey and had them printed off at Walgreens. At the end of the post, you will find a way to download your own copies of the signs if you would like to use them for your party.
The Yoda Soda was just a 2 liter of lemon-lime pop and a half gallon of lime sherbet. The result looked very much like a Dagobah swamp, but was surprisingly tasty.
I trapped Han Solo in some Carbonite Jello by mixing blue raspberry and orange jello together. It was a little more green than I would have liked, but it was still pretty cool.
The Endor Trail Mix was a combination of sugar pop cereal, mint M&Ms, yogurt-covered raisins, and chocolate graham bears (meant to look like Ewoks).
I was so pleased with the BetterCreme frosting that I used for my daughter’s Mickey party, that I used it again this time, in vanilla instead of chocolate. I frosted the cake and filled all the Qui-Gon Jin-gerbread Stars with the one carton of frosting.
I decorated the cake with Wilton Darth Vader and Yoda decorations and my son’s name. I will share how I created my son’s name in chocolate later today.
Since I am such a naming nerd, I came up with a few more Star Wars menu items that we did not end up using:
- Luke Skywalking Tacos
- Boba Fettuccini Alfredo
- Jabba Juice
- Pada –Wontons
- Darth Maulted Milkshakes
- Admiral Ack-Bars
