It’s that fun time of the month for our Monday Movie Challenge. A group of blogging pals and I get together and have to come up with a project or a recipe inspired by a movie. We all decided with the anniversary of Star Wars coming up in May, we decided to go with that! Sharing some yummy Star Wars inspired Malteser Chocolate Banana Tarts.
Malteser Chocolate Banana Tarts
Star Wars has been a favourite for as long as I can remember. My brother and I use to watch the movies over and over as children. Then when my son was old enough to watch them we would have regular Star War Movie nights with popcorn and party juice. On some occasions, we would all dress up in character too! My daughter would be Princess Leia and my son would dress up as either Yoda or Luke Skywalker and me well it was usually Chewbacca! Such fun fond memories!
After spotting this recipe recently in a Monthly Magazine from Woolworths I had to make some adjustments. The original recipe had nuts in it and because my hubby is highly allergic I just tweaked it a little for all to enjoy! As soon as I saw it I thought it screamed Star Wars! I can just see Darth Vader sitting down to one of these! He looks like a chocolate lover doesn’t he? 😉
Cooking and DIYing are my 2 favourite things in the world. Especially cooking for family and friends. So with the Anniversary of Star Wars, I’ve decided to have a family movie night and make these for our dessert. And yes we will all have to get dressed up because the kids haven’t done it since they were about 8 and 9 years old! They are now 20 and 21, so it should be lots of fun.
