My boys are spending a few days with their grandparents so the girls were begging me yesterday to have a "girl party". Of course, one of the favorite things we love to do when the girls get together to party is eat treats and our favorites have something to do with chocolate.
Yesterday, for our "girl party", I pulled out the new fondue warmer I recently received from Velata. I sliced some apples, bananas and poured bitty marshmallows and pretzels into a bowl. Then melted the Belgian Milk chocolate pouch from Velata in the microwave. Once the chocolate was melted (just a minute), I poured the chocolate into the fondue warmer. The girls loved dipping the treats in the delicious chocolate. Utah Dad even joined us though the girls protested a bit.
The chocolate was delicious. The prep was mere minutes and clean up was a breeze. I am definitely a fan of how easy and yummy our special treat was courtesy of Velata.
Developed by a team from Scentsy, Velata Fondue Systems offer cute fondue warmers that are dishwasher and microwave safe. They use the heat from a light bulb to keep the chocolate or cheese warm. The sell premium Belgian chocolates in the easy-to-use packets and now they also offer Velata cheese fondue in fun flavors such as Rich Bacon Cheddar and Smoked Gouda.
Check out the Velata website for more information on products and parties.
One reader will win a Velata Fondue Warmer as well as two packages of Velata Premium Chocolate and a cheese.
