It is currently pouring rain outside. I realize that rain isn’t really too big of a deal for everyone but here in Southern California we have been in a total drought. I think it rained a total of five times all winter long. I am elated that we are finally having some cool weather! Something about listening to the clinking of the drops falling off the roof makes me feel nostalgic inside. I especially love the morning after a big storm when all the asphalt is wet. I think they need to bottle that scent…I’d buy it by the gallon. Am I totally weird for thinking that? Tell me I am not the only one.

On nights like tonight my hubby and I pop a big bowl of popcorn, snuggle and watch our favorite movies. Lately, Baby Stella has been joining us so we watch her favorite movies instead…which is usually The Little Einstein’s (Oh the sacrifices we make as parents). We really don’t mind at all. We love watching her be so entertained by the screen. I swear that kid is already addicted to technology. We are teaching her to crawl by putting our phones on the ground so she can go and get it. She has a love of anything with a screen: computers, phones, tv’s and even my camera. It’s like she knows they are all expensive and breakable! She will probably be asking for her own phone by the time she is five. Lord help me!

Okay, back to popcorn. I LOVEEE popcorn. It is one of my favorite snacks. I especially love kettle corn because its sweet (I have a major sweet tooth in case you haven’t noticed). Popcorn is easy to make and I always have it on hand so I find myself always experimenting with different variations of it. This chocolate coconut variety is so addicting. You probably have everything you need to make it already in the pantry. I like to divide this popcorn into small serving size bags and put them in our snack bin for quick and easy treat on the go.

Of course on rainy nights like tonight, I’ll be eating this chocolate coconut popcorn out of a big ol’ bowl and enjoying every minute of it.

      Why do they grow up SO fast?! I still want to know how you juggle two kiddos. I struggle over here with just my one.

    My cousin’s baby is the same way with phones. She’s 10 months old and if you put a phone a few feet away from her, she will crawl to it. Usually when she comes over we watch “Mickey Mouse Playhouse” or “Doc McStuffins”. Oh children’s shows. This popcorn looks amazing. My microwave never pops popcorn right, so usually I do it on the stove. 🙂

    It rained this week up in Northern California too! We need the rain so badly. And it’s extra great because it loosened up the soil for my garden. Almost time to plant! This popcorn sounds delicious! I love all things salty and sweet. And you KNOW how much I love coconut. Will definitely be making this soon!

      I am SOOO excited for your garden Natalie and all the things you are gonna write about for it! Maybe I’ll feel inspired enough to at least plant my herbs. =p

    I love the smell of rain, and here in the S.F. Bay Area, I hear you on that — we need more of it! My kids used to watch Baby Einstein all the time and now that they’re grown up I miss those shows. Enjoy them for me! I’m totally addicted to popcorn, and never jazz it up like this. I love chocolate and coconut, and can’t wait to try this!

    • Mariah Mercurio says

      Such a beautiful area to live in! We love it up there Marcie!
      Everyone keeps telling me how fast she is gonna grow up so I just try to enjoy every minute of it. =)

    I want this right now! I’ve restricted myself to popcorn only once a week and I had it yesterday. I never stray from my cheesy pepper popcorn, but I’m going to for this recipe! I love the combo of the chocolate and coconut – it just looks so good! I have to laugh about Stella and technology.. my niece is the exact same way. She loves the tv, iPad, phones – she will spot a phone anywhere in the room and try and get it. I swear kids are just being born with a tech mind haha!

    • Mariah Mercurio says

      Haha I am so glad you are going to try it Keri! You are gonna loveee it! I eat popcorn everyday! No joke! We buy the big ol’ bag of Skinny Pop from Costco. It is addicting.
      Totally crazy that kids are so techy! It’s even crazier to see how fast they adapt to actually using technology. My nephew used an ipad better than I do!

    I hear you on the technology thing! My 1 1/2 year old has his own play cell phone, and it is hilarious to see him hold it up to his ear. But we are working on not letting him have too much screen time…he is SO addicted to Elmo :/ Love the looks of this popcorn! I love salty sweet anything, but chocolate and coconut? I’m sold!

    • Mariah Mercurio says

      SOOOO cute! We just started talking about limiting screen time…its hard! I will take any tips you have Denise!
      I have been thinking about getting Stella her own little cell phone too! Anything to keep her away from mine! lol
