Finding Dory was one of our favorite movies from this past year.   The entire family was excited when the DVD showed up on our doorstep from our friends at Disney.  To celebrate it’s arrival and our Finding Dory movie night I decided to make some quick Finding Dory pretzels.

These Finding Dory pretzels are a fun and easy partner to a Finding Dory party or movie night. Use candy melts & a couple quick tips to make Dory & Nemo pretzel rods!

I started by making the Dory pretzel rods and then I decided that I also wanted to make Nemo pretzels, too.  No mess and something you can easily eat with your fingers they were the perfect movie night snack.I have a decent stash of baking and decorating supplies so I had everything on hand that was needed to make them.  In case you’re not quite the pack rat I am I’ve included a few affiliate links to help you track down the required items.
