    Preheat oven to 325° F. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, creasing the paper at the four edges at the bottom of the dish and then trimming around the outer edge. Grease the paper with cooking spray. Blend the brownie mix, water, vegetable oil and eggs according to package directions, and pour into the prepared dish. Bake for 52 to 54 minutes (note longer baking times due to smaller pan size used), or until a toothpick inserted two-inches from the edge comes out clean. Let cool completely, 30 to 60 minutes. Transfer the brownies to a cake stand or plate.

    Meanwhile, prepare the pretzels. Line a baking tray with wax paper. Place the pretzels on the tray. Pour candy melts and vegetable shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. If a darker mossy-colored green is desired, add a drop or two of black candy coloring. Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Stir and continue to microwave at 30-second, then 15-second intervals, until fully melted. Stir well, then use a small spoon to drizzle green candy melts onto the pretzels, covering as much or as little as desired. You may not use all of the melts; if desired, use leftover melted candy melts to dip extra pretzels to serve alongside your brownies.

    Let the pretzels set about 5 minutes and move them around a bit so they don’t stick together. Let the pretzels harden fully, about 30 minutes.

  • 4

    Frost the brownies with chocolate frosting. Insert some of the prepared pretzel rods, sticks and twists randomly into the brownies at varying angles to look like a swampy forest. Lay some sticks and twists on the brownies for fallen logs. If you like, stack a few sticks and twists on the plate around the brownies.

    Just before serving, tuck tufts of cotton candy between the pretzel sticks to create fog on the ground. Place your Yoda figurine on the brownies. Serve within an hour so cotton candy remains fresh. (Add a few more tufts of cotton candy if needed just before serving.)

Expert Tips

  • This recipe also requires a plastic Yoda figurine. If kids are enjoying the dessert, make sure they know the Yoda figure is not edible!
  • Find cotton candy and black candy color (if using) at craft stores. Pale colors of cotton candy work best, such as very pale purple, green or pink to mimic darkly lit fog.
  • The frosting will start to dissolve the cotton candy within a couple hours, so try and minimize handling and add the cotton candy right before displaying or serving the brownies.

More About This Recipe

  • An easy party win for Star Wars fans everywhere.Only a story as grand as Star Wars can rightfully appropriate a day for itself. May the Fourth. Yes. May the Fourth be with us all.Fellow Star Wars devotees understand the importance of Dagobah, the dreary, creepy, isolated planet of swamps, mud plains and gray forest. It's home to only one form of intelligent life: Yoda. The mist-filled marsh is where Luke stubbornly learns from his Jedi Master to control The Force, and irritably frees his X-wing from the clutches of the swamp.And nothing says dreary isolation and swampland like… frosted brownies. No, seriously! You can make this fun food diorama that re-creates Dagobah on a delicious brownie bed. And as awesome as this looks (ouch, it’s not easy to pat oneself on the back), it’s so easy to assemble that anyone in the galaxy can make it.The beauty of Dagobah is its gnarled, chaotic mess, which means imperfection helps with the final look. So you can stick those pretzels in any way you like and it will look right.A note on using cotton candy: The frosting will start to dissolve the cotton candy after a few hours, so add this right before serving, or right before the start of the party. (You can always covertly add a few more tufts if it starts to dissolve.)Finally, add your Yoda figurine to complete the scene. If you have Luke, too, even better!Think you’ll try to make your own? As Yoda says, “Do… or do not. There is no try.” (And yes, you can do.)
