(Inside: In a galaxy far, far away, is a hairy beast everyone on our planet loves. Homage to this noble fur-covered brute is necessary in the form of these amazing Chewbacca Donuts – The Chocolatiest Donuts in the Universe. Chewie would be proud.)
In a galaxy far, far away, there is a hero that blends into the background.
He stands up for what’s right and never lets evil win on his watch.
Companion to all–he has a special place in all our Star Wars-loving hearts.
Even though we can’t understand a dang word he says.
These Chewbacca Donuts – The Chocolatiest Donuts in the Universe – are homage to our unsung hairy beast-like hero.
For without him, the galaxy’s best story lines would be missing something great big and, again, hairy.
Ok. So, these Chewbacca Donuts can totally be made vegan and gluten-free–that’s actually how I made them for my kids.
But they went too fast and I didn’t have time to take a pic.
So I made them the regular way since I had an old box of mix in the pantry.
And they really are the Chocolatiest Donuts in the Universe.
Look at all that chocolate just THERE–I mean FOR REAL.
And then there’s the whole affair with the donut itself being all chocolate.
That’s just freaking awesome, too.
Chewie (or is it Chewy?) would totally say “rawwwrrr!”

For real, these Chewbacca Donuts are just about the easiest donuts I’ve made in a while.
Ridiculously so, really.
Just throw off a few things in a cake mix then bake and throw the icing in a piping bag.
The kids though–their reaction was priceless.
All running around the house on a sugar high rawring and basically showing me how much they loved these Chewbacca Donuts by being obnoxiously cute.
That’s my kids for you.
Oh, and hey!
Here’s a photo tutorial for making these–since maybe they look harder than they are?
But really–super simple.
So, to make the Chewbacca Donuts you really just use the star tip of your piping set to make all the fur.
It’s very fast.
Then you slather some open rolls over it to make the bandolier and tear up a few marshmallows.
But, just so you remember for next time, you probably ought to pin it…Just sayin’.
Alright. You ready to make ’em.
Punch it, Chewy.
