Feeling Lucky? Try This Recipe for Han Solo’s Chance Cubes

We've got a good feeling about these petit fours, the perfect way to celebrate your latest win.

It was in that fateful game of sabacc [Corellian Spike rules] with the charming Lando Calrissian that the smuggler Han Solo won the fastest ship in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon. The chance cubes from that game hung in the cockpit of the Falcon and proved to be a lucky charm, time and time again.

These edible game tokens are much tastier—made of cake and sweet frosting—featuring the same winning symbols that proved to be a lucky charm over the years. I’ve got a really good feeling about this.
