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.

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.
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!
