5 ingredient sweet and salty chocolate coconut popcorn. This popcorn is our favorite movie snack filled with sweet shredded coconut, chocolatey cocoa powder, and coconut oil for an extra punch of flavor.
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.
