5. Boba Fett-uccine

6. Carbonite jelly

All you need is a Han Solo figurine and some jelly cubes for this brilliant idea. Of course, real carbonite is grey, but we think the orange jelly is far more appealing... See more: The Chive

7. Chewie noodles

It's not all cakes and sweet treats (although we're not going to pretend that they're not our favourites... ) This healthy soba-noodle Chewie is just the thing for a Wookie lover's dinner. Get the recipe: Disposable Aardvarks Inc

8. Porg potatoes

Mini potatoes are the perfect porg shape and these potatoes are super easy to make - although they look a bit too cute to eat! Get the recipe at starwars.com

These shaped brownies are perfect for recreating Jawa's hooded silhouette. The added twist? A dash of peppermint. Get the recipe: Yummy Crumble

14. Star Wars macaroons

15. Obi-Wan Kabab-ies

The maker of these kebabs has gone for just watermelon, but you could mix up your Obi-Wan Kabab-ies with any kind of fruit (or veggies) that you like. Print the label: All Things With Purpose

Two ingredients and an edible food pen is all you need to make these mini Stormtrooper snacks. Turns out pretzel knots are the exact helmet shape - who knew? Get the recipe: The Scrapshoppe Blog

22. Three fun ideas...

23. Yoda soda

No Star Wars gathering is complete without something to wash the food down with. Yoda soda. Add food colouring to lemonade or Sprite, or use a colourful punch. Get the recipe: Purple Patch Parties

What makes a droid even better? Cheese, of course. This little fella contains cream cheese (dyed with black food colouring), shredded Mexican cheese and cheddar - serve him with a side salad for a more balanced meal. Get the recipe: Totally The Bomb

25. Ewok granola bars

Tootsie rolls and two types of chocolate mean that these granola bars aren't exactly a healthy breakfast option, but they're a delicious sweet treat for very important occasions, like May the 4th. Get the recipe: Redefined Mom.
