And obviously, we Star Wars nerds are all about a good theme party — and when we have a Star Wars soiree, we go all out. We may be notorious for putting a whole lot of effort into our costumes, but it’s about time our food gets the same attention with some Star Wars-inspired recipes.

Kick off your next shindig with some recipes that are more awesome than anything we’ve ever seen in this galaxy (or any other galaxies far, far away). And really, who’s going to say no to a pizza that looks exactly like Yoda or homemade Darth Vader peanut butter cups?
