Why have I never thought of putting coconut on my popcorn?! I really want to try this for our popcorn movie night! I'd love for you to share this post if you don't mind with my food community on http://www.kumbuya.com... Or I can with a link back :)

Wow, everything here looks so good! Why oh why are we not allotted 25,000 calories a day instead of 2,500?! It would leave so much more room for eating all this delicious coconut all day long!

Thanks for choosing my shortbread cookies. I'm seriously addicted to the Almond butter, Dark Chocolate and Coconut cookies. So good!

This is not helping me get over my recent coconut addiction, in any way. Regardless, congrats to all the CPs, and thanks for choosing my macaroons!

Thanks for choosing my cake as a CP! (FWIW, it's better done in a Bundt pan.) All the recipes look and sound so wonderful. I could gain 100 pounds just from reading the recipes!
