Anyone who loves Star Wars know that Chewbacca is truly the star of the franchise. He’s the BFF & copilot we all want in space. And if you are looking for the perfect Star Wars cookies for a party: you better make them Wookie cookies! (And a little PSA these should be called Wookiee Cookies with 2 e’s in Wookiee… but no one searches that way on Google! But the correct spelling is indeed with 2 e’s. The more you know— 😉 )
I like themes when it comes to parties or even movie nights. Movie marathons are my favorite – and watching the Marvel movies in order or the Star Wars movies in order makes me happy. Escaping to a galaxy far far away or hanging with my favorite superheroes is pure entertainment to me.
What makes the movies so great? The characters in them! And Chewbacca is one of my favorite. Chewie is the guy we all want on our side and in our corner. This Wookiee is pretty much THE GUY. And if you haven’t seen the new movie Solo: A Star Wars Story you really need to! You get all the background on Chewbacca and learn a little about his backstory in this one.
And yes- Solo: A Star Wars Story is kid-friendly. So take the whole family!
But first: make these Star Wars cookies before you go. I’m not saying you should sneek these Wookie Cookies into the theater with you… but, you know, Han probably wouldn’t mind.
