From Jabba’s Favorite Decoration to Our Favorite Dessert: Han Solo Chocolate Carbonite Bark!

Make a delicious treat with's easy recipe. Just look out for Boba Fett.

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

Bark Ingredients:

  • 1 pound dark chocolate
  • 4 ounces turquoise candy melts
  • 4 ounces lavender candy melts
  • 2 ounces white candy melts

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.
