"Dick" and Hello Dollies May 31, 2008

Ok, this should be Dick and (insert cupcake here) but these gooey bars are such a part of this movie, I had to include a recipe. Dick (1999) is a spoof movie about the Nixon administration. Kirsten Dunst, Will Ferrell (as Bob Woodward), Dan Hedaya (as Nixon) and Michelle Williams work this over-the-top farce into a hilarious explanation of Watergate and Deep Throat.

It’s goofy – goofier than many Will Ferrell movies – but there is something satisfying in taking a dismal time in American politics and making it into a joke. Like to see Nixon riding on a stallion down a sandy beach toward the girl who idolizes him? What about cold war relations melted over Hello Dollies spiked with pot? Yeah, me too. Fix up a batch of Hello Dollies and hit the video store.

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of an 9×9 inch baking pan. Layer the chocolate chips, coconut and pecans over the crumbs. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top.
Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool and cut into squares.
