Oh Dory! I’m so glad she’s getting her own movie. She totally deserves it.  I can’t count the times I’ve quoted her when I’m having a rough day.  Or just needed a friend.  You see, Dory didn’t really have a reason to care about Marlin or him finding his son, but she did.  She cared enough to go on this insane adventure for someone she barely knew even when she couldn’t remember what was going on.  She just went because her heart told her to.  And now I’m excited to see her favor returned.

I mostly love this movie because of the theme of conquering fear. I know a lot of us deal with it. I personally have a very visceral reaction to stepping out of my comfort zone and facing the unknown. Fear isn’t just being in a moment of fight or flight, it can also be a mindset which we see all too well in the character of Marlin and I love that Marlin is able to conquer that fear a bit with a little help from Dory. He could have given into despair, but she unknowingly helped push him to save his son and grow as a fish.

Okay, so after all of that… Here is a really simple recipe to make your own Finding Dory Bark. This was a total hit with the kiddos. They especially loved crushing up the oreos!

You can now make Hank the Octopus inspired bark too!

Ingredients:
1 pkg Royal Blue Wilton Chocolate Melts
1/3 pkg Yellow Wilton Chocolate Melts
1 Pkg Oreos
1/4 c butter

Tools:
Gallon Plastic Bag
Cookie Sheet
Parchment Paper
Fish Cookie Cutters

1. Place your oreos in a plastic bag smash them with a hammer!

Or a rolling pin! Or your hand! Or let the kids bang them on the counter or floor! They’re in a bag, go to town. – As long as your bags are sturdy, they shouldn’t break open and cause a mess. You want them to be mostly crumbs, having some chunks is okay.

2. Okay, got your oreo crumbs? Awesome. Melt yo’ butta and mix it with your oreo crumbs. When its all mixed it should be crumbly but form firm balled when squished.

3. Smoosh your oreo crust into the bottom of your fish cookie cutters that you’ve placed on some parchment paper.

4. Melt your Candy Melts in the microwave. Start with 1 minute, then stir. Microwave/stir in 30 second bursts until its all melted.

5. Layer your chocolate! Using a spoon (or if you’re really fancy you can use a piping bag) add a layer of Royal Blue chocolate to each fish. Use a toothpic to help your chocolate spread out into all of the small areas.

7. Place your bark in the refridgerator to set  and enjoy!

NOTE: If you’re not into making these fishy shaped, its cool. You can layer everything the same on a sheet of parchment paper and cut apart once its cool.
