Hygge and Hot Chocolate

Pin it button
Hygge. ...the Scandinavians have raised coziness to an art form. They call it being hyggelig.

It’s a candle-lit brunch at home with your sweetie on a dim winter morning. It’s gathering pinecones for your table bundled up in a hand-knit woolly scarf.

This description of hygge (hyggelig is the adjectival form) comes courtesy of cocoavino, and it's something to shoot for this Thanksgiving. The Hyggelig Hot Chocolate they're pitching sounds pretty good, too.It's organic, fair trade, and tastes of dark chocolate with a touch of cardamom for that authentic hint of Scandinavia.

8 ounces can be yours for $20. We've put these beautiful handmade birch-inspired demitasse cups on our wish list this year; they're available from cocoavino for $85, which includes a box of Hyggelig Hot Chocolate.
