Quick & Easy, Chocolate-Macaroon Bar Cookies (baked in 10 minutes) with a Kellogg's Corn Flakes® Bottom Crust, and Ritz HazelSLAG® Sprinkles on top!
~3-Cups Kellogg's Corn Flakes® (measured and then crushed)
~1/2-Cup Butter (melted)
~3-Cups (Shredded) Coconut (I like using Mounds® brand--the 'shreds' are very plump and juicy, and it's freezer-friendly for many months!)
~1/2-Cup Sweetened, Condensed Milk (I use the Eagle Brand® variety.)
~2-Eggs (beaten to 'scrambled' texture)
~1-Tsp. Vanilla Extract
~1-Tblsp. All-Purpose Flour (I use White Lily® brand, for most ALL of my 'baking!')
~~1/2-Tsp. Baking Powder (I use Clabber Girl® brand.)
~2-Tblsp. Chocolate Hazelslag Sprinkles (Optional, for topping--I use Ritz® brand. These came to me directly from a friend in Paris, but are a German brand of Chocolate/Hazelnut-flavored Sprinkles, and can be located from the Internet in tins of various sizes!)
~1 & 1/2-Cups Prepared Frosting Spread (I use a 'Dark Chocolate' for icing my Congo Bars--but feel free to substitute many, different flavors, for Cook's choice of frosting!)
~1/2-Tsp. Table Salt (Optional, to be added into Crust Mixture, at Cook's discretion)

Waste of calories
The cornflake crust crumbled when a piece was lifted and was not sweet enough. The coconut filling didn't need the flour, eggs or baking powder Just condensed milk and coconut would have been enough and it would have held together. The best part was my homemade choc. butter icing. Six people in my family who tried it, didn't like it and I bake a lot for them.
