Ever since I saw Solo: A Star Wars Story, I have been obsessed with Chewbacca! Not only is it Han Solo’s origin story, but we also learn more about Chewie. So what better way to celebrate than by making Chewbacca Wookie Cookies for your Star Wars parties or movie nights! Yes, I know wookiee is spelled with two “e’s.” However for search purposes, people think it is spelled wookie. So I’ll be mixing it up both ways in this post.
Let’s eat, shall we?

Split the icing into 3 bowls
In one bowl add a few drops of brown gel food coloring to get a light brown color

Leave the third bowl white
Cut the tips off the piping bags and place a tip into each bag.
Using the bag with the number 14 tip, scoop the light brown icing into it and set aside

Chewbacca Star Wars Cookies Decorating Instructions
Using the edible marker, pipe a long rectangle from the top right corner to the bottom left corner. This is Chewbacca’s belt.
Using the light brown icing, pipe around the belt.
Using the dark brown icing, pipe lines on the edge of the belt and fill it in.
Using the white icing, add dots onto the belt
