This post was sponsored by Hello Happy. Hello, Hershey's. as a part of an Ambassador Activation for Influence Central.
I've got the most delicious recipe for you today! It is for a Vanilla Chocolatey Chip Frappe. I came up with the recipe with my daughters' and they helped me photograph this post as well as part of Take our Daughters and Sons to work day which is coming up this week on April 28, 2016.
I've long half-joked, half-seriously asked my girls to join me in “the family business,” ie., my blog. They have been interested, but they often lack the time. So, when Hershey asked me to participate in this post for Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, I knew I wanted to participate. My youngest daughter, who is homeschooled, has talked about starting her own blog, so I knew it would be a good experience for her and she jumped on board quite quickly. I assumed that my older daughter would not be able to participate because she would be at school, but it turns out she was feeling a little off the day we made this recipe, so she was home as well. Yay! Hello, happy mommy!
I've also got Hello Happy. Hello, Hershey's. for you too! I've got a giveaway at the bottom of this post. You can win a yummy HERSHEY'S product pack. Yay!
This recipe is super easy, you just put the ingredients(milk, half and half, sugar, vanilla, and ice) in the blender (affiliate link to my blender that works great!) and blend until smooth. Then you will add the HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips and blend again for a short time. I've got a printable recipe for you at the bottom of this post.
The only tricky part of this recipe is getting the swirl of HERSHEY'S Chocolate Syrup (especially if you are going to VERY quickly try to photograph it!). I accomplished this by placing the nozzle of the syrup bottle in the glass and squeezing lightly while quickly turning the glass.
You can come up with any pattern you like. It doesn't have to be a swirl.
Then you will pour your frappe into the glasses. Top with a generous amount of whipped cream and a few more chocolate chips.
Don't forget another drizzle of syrup. Yum! These frappes are so yummy!
As I mentioned, this was my opportunity to take my daughters to work. I know I work from home, but they don't participate in a full post usually. Pumpkin was very eager to help out and participate in every aspect from picking out the props for staging the photo shoot to creating the recipe. She enjoyed every minute of it! It was fun to watch her look at things at the store and figure out what she thought would work. She had some great ideas!
She couldn't wait to get her turn to take a few pictures. She has her own camera and has set up some small backdrops in her bedroom and has been practicing with tea cups. So cute!
She got this shot. Well done Pumpkin!
Snowflake wasn't super eager to help out. Partially because she wasn't feeling 100%, but mostly because we were butting heads(more like she was being a pain and I was yelling at her…yes, keeping it real). Ahhh…aren't teenagers super fun? Not always. She was, however, eager to try the frappe.
Then after watching her sister take some pictures, Snowflake decided to give it a go. This is one of her shots.
Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day may not have gone as well as I had envisioned in my head…what with the teenager being a teenager and my yelling and such. I certainly never envisioned that. 😉 Yet, it was fun to work with Pumpkin and let her choose the things that we used to style the photographs. It was also really neat that they both got to take part since I had thought that Snowflake wouldn't be participating. I loved that they got to see the whole process I go through from start to finish to get a post complete. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be hearing a lot more about Pumpkin wanting to start her own blog. 😉
The best part was that at the end, we had a delicious frappe. What kind of work day isn't good when you end with a Vanilla Chocolatey Chip Frappe?Hello, Happy. Hello, Hershey's. Yum!
