In Norwegian it is a rather uncouth word for a "special cuddle" between two (or more) people who love each other very much. It is also a Finnish sweetbread spiced with cardomom. In Swedish it is to tinker with something, or to stuff one thing into another into another (which can lead to very interesting conversations when talking to someone from Norway).
