No bake cookies are a family favorite around here. They are so easy to make with only a few ingredients that we generally have on hand. I decided to update the recipe in honor of Star Wars Force Friday.
No Bake Wookie Cookies Ingredients:
1/2 C Milk
1/2 C Butter
Start by combining the cocoa, sugar, milk and butter in a sauce pan. Let it come to a rapid boil for 1 minute. While you wait for the ingredients to melt and then boil, lay out wax paper to drop the cookies on. You want to be ready once it starts to boil. After one minute of rapid boil, remove the sauce pan and add the peanut butter and oatmeal, quickly stirring to combine. Drop on waxed paper by tsp (or bigger if you want bigger cookies). Let cool completely before decorating.
Personally I think the texture of the no bake cookies is a perfect match for a Wookie’s fur. Going a step further, I decided my cookies would actually be inspired by Chewbacca, the most well known Wookie of all! Chewbacca is known for his bandolier (ammo belt) so that’s what I wanted to recreate on the cookie.
I used chocolate frosting to draw the belt, diagonally across the cookie. I used a can of pre-made frosting I had on hand, but piping on homemade frosting would work well too. I used a toothpick to smooth out the belt a little and make adjustments.
I attempted to draw the ammo on the belt with melted white chocolate but I couldn’t make consistent rectangular shapes. It was ugly! Plan B was to dig into my stash of sprinkles and pray that I had something useable. Man did I find an awesome solution in these Christmas Light sprinkles. The white ones look like some sort of ammo to me, certainly much better than my messy attempt with white chocolate. If you are a master frosting piper, than you can try it with the white chocolate, otherwise pick up these sprinkles and make this project insanely easy!
