Chocolate fondue? Yes please.

I don't know if you've heard, but Scentsy Group has added another brand to join Scentsy Wickless.  The Scentsy Wickless brand still includes the fragrance products like the warmers, fragrance bars, personal care fragrance items, room sprays etc.  Now, there is a new brand named Velata.  It is fondue warmers and premium Belgium chocolate.  It will be available for purchase beginning in May.  

I was super excited to receive mine on Friday night.  I had made a special trip to the grocery store to buy various items for dipping.  We planned a family fondue night party and indulged on Saturday afternoon.  
We decided to try the Velata Dark Chocolate.  Dark chocolate is usually my favorite, and this one was definitely good.   It also comes in Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, and Caramel Milk Chocolate though.  You take the package of chocolate and put it in the microwave for one minute.  Then kneed it until it is smooth, and pour it into your Velata warmer.  I had a small self-induced snafu with this, but it turned out just fine.  The warmer is warm enough to keep the chocolate smooth but not scorch it.  And one package of the chocolate was enough for my family with a little left over.  
Pat can be a bit of a snob, especially with chocolate,  and he thought it was high quality and very rich.  We dipped fruits, pretzels, cookies, and rice krispies treats.  (I forgot to buy marshmallows.) 
You can control the temperature of the warmer to what suits your preferences and needs.  
Sean, my sweetie with the sweet tooth, thought it was delicious too!

I had been anxious to try this product to see if it lived up to it's hype.  I have to say, I think it is great, especially if you like entertaining.  One thing I loved about it was that I had something delicious for people to eat, and I really didn't have to cook a thing.  I cut up some fruit and microwaved a bag of chocolate, but the resulting food was top notch.  I think guests would be impressed with the fondue and not realize how simple it was to create the yummy treat.  I am already looking forward to our next fondue night.  I think I'll try the Caramel Milk Chocolate as I've heard great things about that too.  

If you have any questions about Velata or how to buy the products, feel free to contact me.
