While I’m at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press junket in LA and with less than 2 weeks to go before the movie release, we’ve turned this into a sort of unofficial Star Wars week on the blog! And, Star Wars fans are sure to love these fun Wampa bars! Whether you serve them as a fun movie snack for the kids, include in a lunch box for a special treat, make for the movie release, or include for your Star Wars party menu, they should definitely be a hit!! They’re also pretty easy to make!!
Now you definitely could come up with some yummy homemade treat, but to make this really easy start with store-bought granola bars. If you can find one like (Special K Greek Yogurt & Fruit) that already has a white coating, even better!!
Here’s what you need:
Granola bar (or other homemade bar treat)
White frosting (your choice of homemade or store bought)
Tootsie Rolls candy
How to make your Wampa Treats:
Unwrap a Tootsie Toll. Pinch off two equal sections and roll until you have formed the Wampa’s horns.
Pinch off another Tootsie Roll section and shape it into a flat crescent to form the mouth. Do this again with two more equal sections until you have formed two flat triangular ears, disk eyes and rounded pupils.
Unwrap a granola bar. Use a knife to spread white frosting liberally over the top of the bar. Place a small mound of frosting near the top of the granola bar to form the snout.
Place the Wampa’s tootsie roll eyes just above the snout. Use your toothpick to place a small dab of white frosting on the eyes and then place the tootsie roll pupils on top of the white frosting.
Press the triangular ears onto the top of the granola bar. If the candy isn’t tacky enough you can use some frosting as glue.
Attach the horns on each side of the face so that they point inward towards the snout.
Then, place the Wampa’s mouth under the eyes and snout.
To make the frsting look like fur, use the toothpick (or a fork) to lift up and outward all over the Wampa’a frosting body. Be sure to do this on the tips of the ears as well.
To make the sharp teeth, pull up on the frosting until you have a small peak on your toothpick and then placing that peak onto the mouth to form teeth.(You could also use pieces of shredded coconut).
Repeat this process for as many Wampa bars as needed.
