Velata Recipes

As I mentioned before I am a chocoholic.  So when the Scentsy Family came up with the idea of Chocolate Fondue Warmers that were easy to set up and clean up, I jumped on board!  Well, Velata has been around for over a year and there is a new catalog and NEW products!

I know not everyone is into Chocolate the way I am and knowing that, Velata is not offering CHEESE!  Yes, I said it, CHEESE!  It comes in four flavors: creamy cheddar, rich bacon cheddar, bold fiesta queso, and sophisticated smoked gouda.

New Cheeses and New Warmers

Now for my die hard chocolate lovers, Velata has a way to spruce up your chocolate experience too!  Mixables come in 4 flavors for a fusion of palate pleasing flavors.  Just mix your choice of Raspberry, peppermint, orange or mocha into your choice of Velata chocolate and enjoy!   Each one comes with 3 mixable packets.

Now, Velata isn't just for dipping.  There are SO many ways you can incorporate Velata Chocolate into a recipe.  This weekend, I made Cheesecake stuffed Strawberries.  Super Yummy!  Or at least that's what I was told by AZ and JR.  The Strawberries disappeared before I got a chance to sample them.

My Creation

Here's the recipe.  Its' Easy Peasy and takes NO time at all to put together.

1 pint fresh strawberries
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 graham crackers, finely crumbled

1 pouch Dark Velata Chocolate

Melt and warm Dark Chocolate per pouch instructions and put into Velata warmer

Rinse and dry strawberries. Using a paring knife, cut a small amount off the bottoms of the strawberries so they stand upright.  Remove the stems and hollow out the centers.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy.

Spoon mixture into a zip-close bag.  Snip off a small hole in one corner.  Pipe cheesecake mixture into each strawberry, filling completely.

Dip filled side in graham cracker crumbs.  Using a spoon, drizzle on warmed Dark Chocolate.

Refrigerate until serving (no more than 2-4 hours.)

Let me tell you, they won't stay around  for long!
