Chocolate coconut popcorn

This chocolate coconut popcorn is such a fun easy twist on a sweet treat. A little salty, a little sweet, and a whole lot of yum. It takes minutes to put together, is made with all pantry staple items you probably have, and is a great alternative to other “treats”. I’ve been a huge popcorn
