Star Wars Rebels Finale Feast!

Throw the ultimate party this week for your own rebel crew! (Just don't tell Darth Vader.)

Season Two of Star Wars Rebels has been a wild ride of emotions, with visits from friends old and new. As the season winds down and everything comes to a head, what will happen between Ahsoka and Vader, where will Ezra turn? So many questions and we can’t wait to see what happens.

For the big finale — this Wednesday at 9 p.m. PT/ET on Disney XD — gather your closest pals for a viewing party and and throw a Star Wars Rebels Finale Feast! Based off of Hera’s shopping list that she gave to Zeb and Ezra back in Season One, when translated from Aurebesh these groceries are clearly supplies for the making of a fantastic finale party.

Start off by DIYing your own decor. Channel your inner Sabine and splash paint on a backdrop to make an interesting and artistic party setting. Print out Hera’s shopping list as a centerpiece, and metallic balloons and Rebels figures round out the decorations.

First on Hera’s list, meiloorun melon. Kumquats are a perfect stand-in for the space fruit, just slice and skewer a few along with blackberries and top off with lime sparkling water. Beautiful to look at and refreshing to drink, meiloorun melon drinks are the perfect party beverage.

Next on the list, Science Dip! Dip is always a science-y mix of flavors, here a chili and sour cream base is topped off with a Rebel Starbird made of cheese. Quite the experiment.

Space waffles! One of Kanan’s favorite foods, these are often sold pre-made and in a triangular shape, but why not make your own? Using a waffle iron in the shape of Darth Vader, these space waffles might be a little tough for Ahsoka to swallow but are the perfect party food for viewing the ultimate showdown.

Riding ham and d’ll pyykkles, definitely sounds like space food. Here you can combine the two and make up some festive appetizers with the help of a little cream cheese and use the Force to try something different!

Jogan fruit is a Star Wars Rebels staple. A popular ingredient in the show, while these jogan fruit cupcakes don’t contain any fruit, they do have that familiar jogan purple and white stripe. Top them off with a dollop of whipped cream and slice of meiloorun melon and you have a sweet-themed snack your guests will enjoy.

It’s not a Rebels party without Chopper. The feisty little droid is turned into a sweet treat, quite the opposite of his personality. These rice cereal treats are dipped in an orange chocolate to give them their signature Chopper look. This is one droid you can eat that won’t put up a fight!

Supplies

Darth Vader waffle maker

Americolor purple gel paste for jogan fruit cupcakes
