Lately my son has been asking me to make something Star Wars again.  Oliver is smitten. The first words out of his little mouth every morning are “Pew Pew Pew!”  So to appease him, and my Christmas craziness, I made these Peppermint Jawa Brownies. Jawas are kind of the Christmas elves of Star Wars, right? You might be thinking… Star Wars and Christmas? Well, let me give you this link to the Star Wars Holiday Special. It will explain everything. If you ever get a hold of the footage, you might feel a little uneasy. It’s that bad. So bad it’s good.


Dark chocolate brownies cut into little Jawas and filled with peppermint dark chocolate ganache. Don’t forget the cute candy eyes for these Peppermint Jawa Brownies! These are irresistibly adorable and easy!

I just used boxed brownie mix for these because, well, boxed brownie mix is the bomb. Do people still say that? Sigh. After baking the brownies, I cut out the Jawas with a cute little cookie cutter, but you can just as easily make the shape with a knife. It was so stinking easy, I laughed through the whole process. “Why are you laughing mamma?” “No reason…” “Okay! Pew pew pew!” jawa3 After pressing in their little faces, I filled them with melted chocolate that was tinted with peppermint extract. You can use whatever flavoring you like and even fill in the little faces with peanut butter or Biscoff Cookie Butter. But in the name of Christmas…I chose peppermint! (Totally optional) But remember, Christmas craziness is here. Let’s start the season right! You can’t forget the little candy eyes though. I feel that makes the Jawa. You can find them at any craft store, and sometimes the supermarket will have the gold tinted ones. Place the little guys in the freezer to hang out for like five minutes or so, and then chow down. jawa2 jawa5 These were super easy to make!
