On Tuesday Pansino shared her recipe for making R2-D2 chocolates (complete with a customized box). You won’t need too many materials for the project which Pansino walks viewers through step-by-step on her YouTube channel. The white chocolate, macadamia-nut sweets seem easy to bake. For the arts and crafts portion, all you’ll need is an empty box, construction paper, and Star Wars decorations. (You can use the same R2-D2 decoration Pansino uses in the video thanks to a link in the video description.)

As for a mushy Star Wars phrase you can include, she also offers some suggestions like, “You’re the Obi-Wan for me.” 

The only hurdle to completing these chocolates might just be getting your hands on the R2-D2 mold. If you can find the droid mold you’re looking for though, your gift will be out of this galaxy.
