This is what my life looked like last night and how it still looks this morning (except that I’ve moved onto coffee now).  At least I had some hot chocolate to keep me & my massive book of Thomas Hardy‘s collected poetry company!

Vegan Peppermint Hot Chocolate

1 cup soymilk
1.5 tbsp cocoa
2 tbsp sugar
1 round peppermint candy

Throw everything into a pot and heat over medium low.  Whisk the milk and cocoa/sugar/peppermint together until combined.  When hot, pour into a mug and try to not drink it until it’s cool enough (burned tongues are no fun!)
