Star Wars Chocolates


There was try.

From Atlas Obscura:


From October through December of last year, to celebrate the December release of "The Force Awakens," an L.A. restaurant called Faith & Flower offered an off-the-menu dessert board featuring a series of desserts imported from a galaxy far, far away.

If you'd been fortunate enough to be in the know you would've been able to mock-duel with a candy lightsaber, "rescue" Han Solo from a block of chocolate, and sink your teeth into the heads of Vader and a stormtrooper.

Pastry chef Josh Graves, the mastermind behind these creations, is the ultimate sweet geek: other recent triumphs include a pastry Hulk that bursts out of the table and an André the Giant cake for street artist Shepard Fairey.

His bite-sized Millennium Falcon


was detailed enough to satisfy the most hardcore fan.

What are they?


Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: smaller than a bread box.

Another: not a new Life Saver variety.

A third: Dunkin' Donuts won't have 'em.
