In The Empire Strikes Back, the iconic scene of Han Solo being lowered into a carbonite freezing chamber was a test to see if Luke Skywalker would survive the process. While the procedure was a success, it had its side effects.
Here we’ve attempted a much more delightful solidifying process with the use of decadent dark chocolate. Chocolate hibernating Solos are set in a galaxy of swirling space systems and candy stars, making for a much more pleasant slumber.
Chocolate Carbonite Bark
What You’ll Need:
- Han Solo Carbonite silicone mold
Chocolate Solo Ingredients:
- 4 ounces dark chocolate
- 1 pound dark chocolate
- 4 ounces turquoise candy melts
- 4 ounces lavender candy melts
- 2 ounces white candy melts
- Silver star sprinkles
- Edible gold luster dust
Step 1: Prep a quarter-sheet with parchment or a silpat.
Step 2: Place the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl and microwave at 15-20 second intervals until melted. Spoon evenly into the silicone mold, tapping to release excess air bubbles. Place in the freezer to set.
Step 3: In a double boiler, start melting the pound of dark chocolate.
Step 4: Melt the turquoise, lavender, and white candy melts in separate bowls in the microwave.
Step 5: Pour the melted dark chocolate onto the prepped baking sheet, using an offset spatula to spread it evenly.
Step 6: Add spoonfuls of the melted turquoise, lavender, and white candy melts onto the dark chocolate layer. Use a toothpick to swirl the colors together.
Step 7: Add star sprinkles.
Step 8: Remove the chocolate Solos from their molds and place randomly onto the chocolate.
Step 9: Place in the freezer until solid.
Step 10: Dust with gold luster dust before breaking apart to serve.
No need to put Captain Solo in the cargo hold. A dessert plate will do.
