Good food, good drinks, good people, and the best media franchise to ever exist: Star Wars. Here are some tasty Star Wars recipes you and your friends can enjoy while geeking out this May 4th!
15 Star Wars Recipes to Enjoy with Your Friends on May 4th
1.Yoda-Inspired Star Wars Pizza
Pizza is a staple when binge-watching any movie or series. Since today is a special day, however, ditch the regular pizza and pay your respects by making a customized Yoda-themed pizza.
This dish is a delicious blend of fresh herbs, flavorful olives, and spicy jalapeños. Feel free to rearrange the ingredients to mimic the legendary Jedi master Yoda.
2. Oreo-Sandwiched Princess Leia Cupcakes
At first, you might feel guilty biting into these cute Princess Leia cupcakes. But once you get a taste of their rich, creamy, and heavenly decadent filling, you might give in to the dark side and massacre the entire batch.
Interstellar Tip: A fun way to eat these is to sandwich the Oreos together and squish the cupcake in between. Then, bite into the dessert one side up.
3. Fluffy Matcha Yoda Pancakes

You’ll fall in love with the fluffy Yoda pancakes. Each bite is an explosion of rich, creamy, and nutty matcha goodness.
If you want to add more flavor to these delicious matcha breakfast pancakes, try coating them in chocolate syrup or pairing them with peanut butter cups.
4. Rich, Flaky, Chewy ChewBaklava
ChewBaklava, it’s a clever wordplay on Chewbacca, our favorite gentle furball co-pilot, and baklava, a delicious Middle Eastern pastry dish.
Similar to the Star Wars character the dish was inspired from, the ChewBaklava has a mild yet powerful flavor you can’t help but fall in love with. Nobody hates Chewie!
5. Creamy Wampa Arm Cake
This severed Wampa arm cake is a popular Star Wars party food. Fans of all ages will love the soft, zesty guava jelly wrapped in a blanket of rich, creamy vanilla goodness.
Interstellar Tip: Instead of just using the chocolate bars for the fingers, stuff the entire cake with them. The extra crunchiness will bring together the different flavors of this dessert.
6. Sweet, Zesty Tart Delights
Making these tasty Star Wars tart snacks is just as fun as eating them. So make sure you call your fellow Star Wars fans for assistance when baking these delicious treats.
Interstellar Tip: Feel free to mold the dough any way you want. Beginners can start with something easy like Yoda’s face lightsaber while experienced bakers can try molding characters like Luke Skywalker.
7. Warm, Chocolatey S'moresTroopers
Planning to host a backyard Star Wars-inspired camping party this May 4th? Then you definitely need chocolatey S’moresTroopers. These are basically s’mores where you use special Star Wars biscuits instead of regular ones.
Interstellar Tip: Don’t have access to Star Wars biscuits? Opt to make your own! Mimic the tart recipe on this list but remove the strawberry fillings. If you like the taste of strawberry and chocolate, however, you can follow the recipes as is.
8. Sweet, Spicy, and Flavorful Rings of Hudalla
This May 4th, you deserve something better than onion rings. You deserve nothing the Rings of Hudallah!
These are juicy onion rings glazed in brown sugar, drenched in hot sauce, and best of all, wrapped in savory, greasy bacon. If Darth Vader used this as bait when tempting Jedi warriors to turn to the dark side, he’d be able to convert a lot more of them.
9. Fizzy Sith Trooper Vanilla-Based Rootbeer Float
After eating rich, greasy, savory Star Wars foods, you’d want something sweet to wash everything down. And what better option than a Sith Trooper Vanilla Rootbeer Float! It’s a modern, sci-fi take on a beloved classic from the early 20th century.
10. Healthy Darth Maul Quinoa Salad
Who knew something so bad can be so good and healthy for the body. The Darth Maul quinoa salad is a delicious bowl of fresh quinoa, chunky black beans, and juicy tomatoes. This is one of the best side dish Star Wars recipes to go with your beef, pizza, and pastry meals.
11. Citrusy, Fizzy, Thirst-Quenching Yoda Soda
This citrusy Yoda-inspired drink is the ideal refreshment to sip on while binge-watching the entire Star Wars series. So make sure you make gallons of these for your May 4th party.
They’re not as rich or sweet as rootbeer float so you won’t feel heavy and dehydrated. At the same time, it has a deliciously zesty, fizzy flavor that plain water just cannot compete with.
12. Cheesy, Creamy Obi-Wan Cannoli Pastries
The term Obi-Wan Cannoli is a combination of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a noble, talented Jedi master, and cannoli, a delicious, creamy Italian pastry oozing with vanilla extracts.
13. Sweet, Spicy Ewok Pumpkin Spice Cookies
These Ewok pumpkin spice cookies are a combination of the two best holidays for Star Wars fans: May 4th and Halloween.
14. Creamy Darth Vader Peanut Butter Cups
15. Fluffy Stormtrooper Marshmallows
Easy and simple yet so delicious. This is the perfect description for the Stormtrooper marshmallow pops. To make them more exciting, you can pair them with your rootbeer float, Yoda pancakes, or hot cocoa drinks.
Interstellar Tip: Make sure you have a bunch of the raw ingredients prepared. That way, you can easily make some more if you suddenly run out of marshmallow pops halfway through the party.
We may not be able to eat these Star Wars-themed food and drinks from Disney's but at least we can be insired. Check out this video from Insider:
Feel free to modify these Stars Wars recipes any way you want. You can herbs, spices, sweeteners, food coloring, and other ingredients that would make them more fit for the occasion.
Also, even if you’re hosting a party, make sure to observe social distancing. Only use the force to perform handshakes, high fives, bro fists, and chest bumps. No physical contact.
