Chilled Tauntaun Salad (chicken salad)
1 1/2 lb chicken boneless skinless
4 fresh Basil leaves
3 Tbsp dill relish
1 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 c mayo
Bring a large stock pot of water to boil. Salt & add basil. Add chicken, poultry seasoning & boil til white through. Drain, (save for broth if you like) and shred chicken with two forks. Add dill & mayo, stir till thoroughly mixed. If too dry add more mayo. Add garlic & blend. Chill over night. Serve with Alderaan suns (round crackers). Sub miracle whip if you like. Add more mayo for a dip like quality.
Wookie Fingers (chocolate no bake cookies)
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 c sugar
1 stick butter
3 c oats
1/2 peanut butter
1 tap vanilla
Peanut halves for decoration
Bring cocoa, sugar, butter, milk to a rolling boil for 2 minutes exactly. Take off heat, add oats, peanut butter & vanilla. Stir to blend completely. On wax paper drop ‘dough’ by teaspoonfuls in thin strips. Use all ‘dough’. Before cooling place peanut halves on tips of cookies. Cool & serve.
Lightsabers (dipped pretzel rods)
40-50 long pretzel rods
4-5 cubes white almond bark
1 tsp oil
Sprinkles or food dye
Melt bark & oil over low in a double boiler. Stir until smooth. (You can microwave in 30 sec intervals but it’s grittier.) Remove from heat & coat pretzels 3/4. Tap tip in pan to shake off extra bark. Coat in sprinkles of light saber colors & cool on wax paper. Space evenly. If bark hardens rewarm on low until smooth. If dyeing blend color after removed from heat, dip & sprinkle.
Thanks to all who made it out & celebrated Lucas’ only good Star Wars films!
