Guess what I'm going to try? Chocolate-Peppermint Cocoa. It was a major 'duh moment' when I saw the recipe. You start by making a bit of peppermint tea. I have pure peppermint tea in bags, so easy-peasy. *Then* you add the cocoa, sweetener, and whatever you like, and go from there.
I always thought that you needed extract for some reason.
It may not be as good as it sounds, but we're going to find out! :-)
