Yoda Soda & Lightsaber Pretzels

Who here loves STAR WARS? Raise your hand!

Ok… I can’t see it, but I imagine if you clicked on this post, we are on the same page.

My middle dragon recently turned five and decided he had to have a Star Wars birthday. Part of this stemmed from the fact that we’ve been watching the films with him and his older brother. Part of this stemmed from the fact that his older brother has never had a Star Wars birthday and he wanted to be different (which was a nice change from him always wanting what his older brother has/does/etc).

For the dragons’ birthdays, I always let them have a say in the type of cake they’re getting, but I try to surprise them with “themed” foods. Star Wars I wanted something easy (because just about nine months pregnant), and these foods are just that (plus crowd pleasers)!

Yoda Soda


  • Green Hawaiian Fruit Punch
  • Pineapple Juice
  • 7UP


  • If you haven’t checked out our Pixie Punch or Mermaid Water, then you’ll be surprised by these directions! If you have, then you won’t.
  • Mix the Hawaiian Punch and Pineapple Juice 2:1. (2 Cups of Hawaiian Punch, 1 Cup of Pineapple Juice, or 4 & 2… you get the idea)
  • Leave enough room so the 7UP is half of your drink. Once you have half with your punch and pineapple juice, fill it up with your 7UP.

BAM! Easy and Delicious. You won’t be sorry.

Lightsaber Pretzels


  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Melting White Chocolates
  • Traditional Food Dye (Blue, Green, Red preferred)


  • Melt your melting chocolates in separate bowls according to directions on packaging for each color you’re going to use.
  • Once you’ve melted your chocolates, add the food dye as needed.
    * In the first picture, I did not have traditional food dye. It was an organic gel one that ended up not dying the lightsabers classic colors. This lead to having pastel lightsabers. For our second round I used traditional food dye and it worked much better (see pictures below).
  • Dip the pretzel in the colors and swirl until about 2/3 – 3/4 of the pretzel is covered in the chocolate. Set on wax paper to cool. Give them at least a solid hour before eating/moving from the wax paper.

Both of these snacks were a big hit and easy to make last minute. Perfect for a Star Wars movie marathon or birthday!
