Seeing Han Solo frozen in carbonite at the end of “Empire Strikes Back” was a pretty big bummer to just about everyone, except perhaps Boba Fett whose eyes were probably big cartoon credit signs behind his helmet. But what if you could turn your despair into delicious delight by recreating that dramatic scene with rich chocolate instead of cold, hard carbonite? Now you can with the Han Solo in Carbonite Silicone Tray! This baking accessory allows you to mold or freeze your favorite treats into the agonized visage of your favorite smuggler just after being hermetically sealed for shipping.
This flexible silicone mold is ideal for any treats that require a mold to set. Use it to create delicious treats ranging from flavored ice to Jell-O to chocolate bars. The tray has seven molding chambers, one large version of Han and six identical smaller ones. The soft silicone design allows for easy removal of your finished product.
Use this kitchen accessory with your children for a fun cooking project, then put on your favorite Star Wars movie as you wait for your mold to set.
The tray is not suitable for baking or other high temperature uses, and does require a little bit of TLC for cleaning as it is not dishwasher safe, but it still presents a wide variety of possibilities. Any liquid that you can set at room temperature or below will work great with this tool. So, get your kids into the kitchen and show them that DIY deserts can be both entertaining and educational!
And now, a stop-motion, Lego-ized adaptation of the famous scene:
