It’s a rainy day in Calgary and the Hexagon staff have just closed the café for the night. Chief Investigator Smith is at the front door, tapping on the glass. As the door is opened, he speaks up in a low and raspy voice, “It pains me to say this, but we need your help again. The body of Scout Master Maple has been found at Bored Not Campsite. All the campers are nowhere to be found. Their hot chocolate is mysteriously untouched. We need your expert barista skills to solve this case!" Smith hands over photographs of the mysterious hot chocolate that was left behind. Upon closer analysis, the rim is coated in a chocolate graham cracker crust, topped with lightly toasted marshmallow and molten triple chocolate brownie chunks, piled in a chaotic manner with a waffle graham cracker topping. The Hexagon staff look up at Smith, “We’re on the case. We will find the missing campers!"
This hot chocolate is inspired by our new favourite board game, Chronicles of Crime. You can find this game in the archives of the Hexagon library.
