I love all things Scandinavian and that includes the idea of hygge — the art of being cozy. This week I wanted inspire you all to get cozy as we get ready for the Winter Solstice and Christmas. Take time with these Sparkle recipes to have a hot drink and something really yummy and warming to eat in the afternoon. Invite some friends or family over and relax.
Mexican Hot Chocolate
This hot chocolate is a fun change from the normal hot chocolate. The spices like cinnamon and cloves and cayenne make it even more warming! It pairs perfectly with our gingerbread cookie recipe.
Small Batch Gingerbread Cookies
Small batch gingerbread cookies are perfect for a quick tea for impromptu guests or afternoon snacks. They are spicy and soft and don't require decorating.
Mineral Rich Tea
This tea is so tasty — and healthy too. It's a great addition to an afternoon snacktime to add minerals and liquids to your diet. You won't feel so bad having one more orange glazed sweet roll with all the nutrients and minerals you'll get from the tea.
Orange Glazed Sweet Rolls
Here is another recipe that brings a special twist. The addition of citrus to these sweet rolls makes for a wonderful winter pick-me-up. Make a large batch of these because you defintiely won't be able to eat just one — and neither will anyone else.
