I know, I know. Super nerdy. Actually, the only reason I knew what Star Wars was growing up was because my elementary school chorus sang the Star Wars Cantina for a concert one year. No. Really.

I do remember thinking that Princess Leia (RIP Carrie Fisher) was the coolest, and I dreamed of growing my hair long enough to wear it like she did. I also remember being really confused when I finally saw the first movie, since Darth Vader doesn't say he's Luke's father in it. I had no idea there were two movies that came after it. When the prequels came out, I didn't watch them, although I finally did around 2007 or so. Hell, I didn't see The Force Awakens in theaters, but I did rent it from Red Box.
It wasn't until last year on Black Friday that I finally got to see all 6 movies during a Star Wars marathon. Then I saw Rogue One in theaters...twice. Now I guess I'm one of those people, who bake for Star Wars Day.
Chewbacca cookies are easy, just a little time consuming. You'll need a gingerbread man cookie cutter, chocolate frosting, vanilla frosting (I bought both of these, because you have enough to do with the cookie part), and a chocolate sugar cookie recipe. I used this one from Sweetopia, but halved it. I still ended up with around 40 cookies, even after I tossed out the burnt/broken ones.
Here's how you make and decorate:
