Hot cocoa

I love hot cocoa. It's so good, especially when you just came inside from frolicking in the rain.
On top I have some Dandies (a brand of vegan marshmallows) The reason they look like whipped cream rather than marshmallows is because when I ordered them I thought "Oh, I won't need an icepack, it'll be fine." I was wrong, and they got pretty melty. But they're still delicious!
Anyway, some other things I sometimes like to do to spice up my hot cocoa is to add a tiny bit of peppermint or orange extract. And of course a sprinkle of cinnamon is always nice.
Oh, and in the Winter when there's soy nog around, I like to fill my mug halfway with soy nog, and the hot cocoa mix, and then fill it up the rest of the way with boiling water. It's so good.

I'm not sure peppermint oil would work. I said extract. But you could always try it.

And yeah, I've had seitan and made it. It's good. Especially when you make it with seasonings.
