Coconut Bacon Bits Take 2

I decided to make another batch of Coconut Bacon Bits and experiment with adding more depth of flavor.  I have a feeling I will be making these a lot from now on as they are so versatile!  

The recipe is as follows:
Coconut Bacon Bits Take 2
2 cups thick flaked unsweetened coconut
1 Tablespoon liquid hickory smoke
1 Tablespoon molasses
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon crushed black pepper

Toss all ingredients except coconut flakes in a large bowl and stir well to combine.  Add coconut flakes an d toss to coat evenly.  Allow to sit and marinate for about 10 minutes.  Spread out coconut into one even layer on cookie sheet (put parchment paper under it if you have it for easy clean up).  Bake at 325 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Watch carefully as it will go dark quickly!  Allow to cool completely before serving for a true crackly crunch.
