The boys in the family are major Star Wars fans. I like some stuff like Hoth, the Millennium Falcon, and ATATs but really I am only there for Han Solo. For Star Wars Day, May the Fourth (be with you), I made us a Han Solo in Jellonite dessert.
The original jello was clear but a berry flavor. I added silver sugar sprinkles to the mix while it was still hot and to my surprise specs of metallic bits remained. I also added a dab of black dye trying to make it more grey. I could have added more dabs. The color kinda turned out looking like he is taking a bubble bath. I molded it in a loaf pan but even more fun would be to have several Hans and make the jellonite in mini individual loaf pans. A Han Solo for everyone!
I have a fondness for Star Wars because it reminds me of PB when he was younger. For many of the early years of elementary school he was a Star Wars nut. He had enough Star Wars shirts to go over a week without washing. My husband has an immense nostalgia for Star Wars. He was a kid when it was all happening. You can imagine how much fun it was for my husband to collect Star Wars and play with them again with PB. So I have to celebrate the day in some way. I now have nostalgia for it too.
