When we visit Walt Disney World, my family is on a mission to find the best Disney treats. The brownies at the Boardwalk Bakery always rank pretty high, so we set out to create a fun Star Wars brownie that would not only taste great, but bring a touch of magic to the kitchen.
How to Make Star Wars Brownies
Some of the most famous Disney characters have been made into brownies, but we think our fellow Star Wars fans are really going to love this recipe. Celebrate your inner Star Wars geek by making this Disney brownie recipe at home.
For this sweet Disney treat, we combined the iconic Mickey head with one of our favorite Star Wars characters to make yummy chocolate chip frosted Yoda brownies! The recipe is really simple to make, especially if you decide to go the boxed brownie mix route. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Yoda Star Wars Brownies
- Large mixing bowl
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- 9×13 Baking pan
- 1 Cookie sheet
- 2 Small bowls
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ⅔ cup powdered sugar
- ¾ cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- One container of vanilla frosting
- Juniper green Wilton food coloring
- Brown Wilton food coloring
- 2 Pastry bags
- Mickey Mouse cookie cutter
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat the pan with non-stick baking spray.
Add sugar and melted (not room temperature) butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir it briefly then allow it to sit for 5 minutes to allow the mixture to dissolve some.
Next whisk the butter and sugar vigorously for 30 seconds. Add two large eggs, water, and the vanilla extract. Whisk again for about 30 seconds. Use the spatula to scrape the excess batter off the whisk, then set it aside.
Combine cocoa powder, powdered sugar, all purpose flour, milk chocolate chips, and salt with the wet ingredients. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to stir the mixture until it is glossy and well combined.
Pour the brownie batter into the lined baking pan, scraping the sides of the bowl with the spatula. Use the spatula or gently tap the pan on the counter to even out the batter. Place the pan in the oven.
Bake for approximately 35 minutes, checking the brownies often so they don’t bake too long.
While the brownie batter bakes, divide the vanilla frosting evenly into two small bowls. In one bowl, add 3 drops of juniper green food coloring, mixing thoroughly. Carefully spoon the Yoda green frosting into a pastry bag, then cut off a small tip of the bag.
In the second bowl of frosting add 2 drops brown food coloring, mixing thoroughly. Spoon the frosting into the pastry bag and cut off a small section of the bag.
Check the brownies to make sure they are done by inserting a toothpick into the center of the pan. If it comes out without raw batter on it, the brownies are done.
Once brownies are done baking, let cool for 3 minutes. Run a knife along edges and then place the cooling rack over the pan. Carefully, with oven mitts, securely grab the pan and cooling rack and flip.
Once brownies release, remove pan, then place cookie sheet over brownies and flip again. Let cool completely.
Use the Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to cut as many cooled brownies out as will fit. Remove the excess brownie (you might have to taste it or reward little helpers with a bite) and place the Mickey head brownies on a serving plate.
Take brown bag of frosting and ice the bottom half of the brownie in a zigzag motion. Then take green piping bag and cover the top half of the circle in the same way, avoiding the ear area.
Finally, pipe a rounded, elongated triangle onto each Mickey ear to look like Yoda’s ears.
More Brownie Ideas
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your recipe to make the best brownies for your younglings. For example, you can use different flavored chocolate chips (Mint would be so good!) for a different experience. You can also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel sauce to make galactic brownie sundaes.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this Yoda Disney brownie recipe and will save it for the next time you need to make a fun dessert. If nothing else, we hope it inspires your family to get creative in the kitchen with different versions of these delicious treats!
