10 Finger Foods for a Cozy Friday Night In

April 17, 2015

Fredagsmys is Swedish for "Cozy Friday"—a weekly phenomenon that invites you to stay home and snuggle up with family, friends, cats, dogs—really whatever you find coziest. While any food is Fredagsmys-friendly, tacos are a popular choice in Sweden—often topped with corn and cucumbers. But if you are anything like us, a varied Cozy Friday is the way to go. 

In our opinion, the secret to a seriously successful Cozy Friday is snacks: finger foods you can eat while watching that movie you've been dying to see or binging on Netflix. So, cancel your Friday night plans because Cozy Friday awaits.

These 10 recipes will ensure an easy night of couch-friendly food. Bonus points if you put out a big bowl of candy with at least a few salted Swedish sweets.
