Let’s be honest––you’ve been home with your family or sweetheart or housemates for way longer than you expected to be, and life is feeling kind of stale. If you’d like to perk things up, bring a smile — or even just get a few minutes of time to yourself while everyone else is busy — try this treasure hunt. We’ve created a list of clues for a chocolate treasure hunt that can be done around the house. These clues can be tweaked to fit what you have at your house, but we hope they are ready to be printed, cut into strips, and planted around the house. Place a box of Tangle Chocolate THINS or other treat at the final location. The only rules are to have fun and enjoy some chocolate!
Give the first clue to the treasure hunters. Hide the next clue in the place described by the first clue, and so on.
