5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

This post was sponsored by Hello Happy. Hello HERSHEY’S. as part of an Ambassador Activation for Influence Central.

I’m a full time working mom, which means I’m a busy mom! However, even though I’m a busy mom, I still want to find time to connect with my kids as much as possible. Spending time together in our family is never taken in vain. Instead of getting caught up in the everyday, I want to find happiness in every moment.  I work outside of the home 40 hours or week and cherish the evenings when I get to spend time with my kids!  I also blog full time on my “off” hours and I wanted to let my 6 year old son help me make a delicious treat using some of our favorite HERSHEY’S Products.  I whipped up a delicious 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake and it was amazing!

If you love HERSHEY’S already, you are going to love them even more after I tell you what they are up to. They are encouraging families just like yours and mine to choose happiness anywhere and anytime. Hello Happy Moments was created to show families that they can be happy on the commute to school or at the dinner table. No matter what YOU CAN CHOOSE HAPPINESS. Be a great example to your kids and show them that you CAN be happy at anytime and anywhere.

In honor of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day I am creating an awesome recipe for you guys! It’s called 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake and it’s the perfect treat for our special day coming up. This day will happen on April 28th and my son is super excited. Thanks to HERSHEY’S, we are going to have an awesome day and enjoy an awesome Hershey’s snack together.  The dessert is so easy to make and delicious you’ll be wanting it all all special occasions.

HERSHEY’S really got me thinking about enjoying those special moments together and choosing to be happy! I am so excited to tell you about our “mother son work day” and how it went. Be sure to make the delicious Chocolate Mug Cake for your own Hello Happy Moments.

We don’t always have cake in the home, actually we rarely have cake in the home so this 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake is a much do.  In just 5 minutes you can have a delicious, chocolate cake in the palm of your hands!  It’s so easy to make even the kids can help out which my 6 year old son did an awesome job with.

  1. When I come home from work my kids are already in bed, but my dog is always waiting for me, tail wagging. If I came home and he wasn't there I would be disappointed. It is a great way to end my day.

  2. My happy moment is any time I can spend outdoors, sitting on the patio and reading or playing with the dogs.
