I’m one of those people who takes pleasure in flipping through cookbooks—as long as I have something to munch on simultaneously, of course. Even as a kid I enjoyed them, my all-time favorite being Wookiee Cookies: A Star Wars Cookbook. Talk about creative! From “Dark Side Salsa” to “Hoth Chocolate”, this book covers all the edible Star Wars basics.

Or so I thought. Thanks to all you creative culinary craftsmen/women out there, it turns out that book is just the tip of the ice planet. Here are fourteen of my favorite Star Wars food finds!
