Mosaic Dessert Bars

For a desert that is as fun to make as it is to eat try these mosaic desert bars. No two bars taste the same as they are made with JELL-O flavors - so each bite is different!

Directions
1. 
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
2. 
Rinse coconut in cool water and pat dry. Place egg whites in large bowl of a standing mixer. On high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until meringue is very thick, about 7 minutes. Fold in coconut, then almonds, flour and pineapple pieces. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets, spacing mounds 1-1/2 inches apart.
3. 
Bake macaroons until light brown outside and dry-looking (insides will still be soft), about 20 minutes. Move cookies to racks; cool completely.
