Coconut Swirls

If you love coconut like I do...well then...
My Mom would make these every year at Christmas time and hide them in the freezer so they wouldn't disappear before company came...LOL
Well my brothers and sisters and I found her hiding spot and would sneak into the coconut swirl stash and eat to our hearts content....and the funny thing is she had to know BUT never said a word...come to think of it I want some now...
