Day 1 Star Wars Princess Leia Marshmallows #12daysofStarWars

Hey all! Hello to you and to December! 

Not only is it holiday season (Happy Hanukkah to all that celebrate!) but it's also the month that Star Wars - The Force Awakens comes out.  And if you haven't been hit over the head enough with all of the Star Wars merch (thank you Disney marketing machine!) I have a fun countdown for you.  

I'm doing the #12daysofStarWars where I'll be sharing a SW themed treat everyday from here on until the movie opens.  Why? 

  1. We all love all that is Star Wars in this house
  2. It's a great story - good versus evil and all that goes with it
  3. I'm pretty much crazy.  Full time job - YES, 3 kids in elementary school - YES, plans a post a day for 12 days - YES.  See crazy.
But whatever, a new Star Wars movie doesn't happen every year and the whole world needs a distraction from the real life good versus evil that seems to be so prominent these days. 

Enough of me babbling on....First up:


Princess Leia Marshmallows!  

Doesn't everyone love Princess Leia??

She's can hold her own with the boys and is funny.  And not to shabby with a blaster either. Well ignore that she shoots at stormtroopers who can't aim for {insert poo emoji}.

These marshmallows can't be any simpler.  Some marshmallows, Hershey's kisses, and some melted chocolate are needed to make her face and iconic bun hair.

Isn't she just so cute?? And I had to make a little Han to go along with her.

Are you super excited for the new movie?? We of course got our tickets already.  Not going opening nite (although I definitely debated going to the midnight show but nixed that since it's a school nite).  BUT we are going opening weekend.  Woo! (must stay off social media once the movie opens on the 18th - technically 17th if you go to the midnight shows!)

I sure hope the movie is great - the trailers look pretty awesome so I have a *new hope* (sorry couldn't resist)

Stop back everyday for another Star Wars treat or follow along on FacebookInstagram and/or Twitter! #12daysofStarWars @sugarswings

How To Make Princess Leia Marshmallows 

  • 10 regular sized marshmallows
  • 24 Hershey's kisses
  • 10 mini heart sprinkles
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • Black edible food writer
  1. Remove foil from kisses and cut off the tips (these will be the "buns")
  2. Melt chips in microwave safe bowl in 20 second intervals.  Once just melted add to a quart size freezer bag.  Snip a small corner and "pipe" on hair.  
  3. Add chocolate bun to each side.  You may have to hold in place until chocolate hardens.  Repeat for other marshmallows.
  4. Add a tiny bit of melted chocolate to the back of heart sprinkle.  Add to marshmallows as mouth.
  5. Use edible marker to add 2 small eyes.
