cookies during the holidays, the last thing you want to ponder is a dinner that

make a lot of 'Star Wars' food and when I do it I like to stay true to the
movies as much as possible," Jenn says. "I want the food to be
a true fan experience. So when I saw the Millennium Falcon mold, I'd seen it
used with ice and chocolate but I felt like the best thing to do would be do
make it a true ship color gray. I figured that Jell-O would be the best
material to get that color and all the fine details."

Pay tribute to Groot from Marvel's movie
"Guardians of the Galaxy" this holiday season with Groot Cookies, also from JustJenn Recipes. Jenn from the JustJenn Recipes food blog explains how to
make the mindful tree-like creature into a yummy brown sugar cookie
compete with chocolate bark and matcha powder green foliage.

I wasn't the only one who felt that way because now that everyone's seen
'Guardians of the Galaxy,' turns out they made him into the heart of the movie!
