God's gift to women: Velata Fondue - Review & Giveaway! CLOSED

Mike and I received one of those fancy electric fondue pots as a wedding gift. We've used it maybe three times in as many years. It's not that I don't LOVE chocolate fondue (because I do), it's just that there is too much work involved. You have to fill it with enormous amounts of chocolate, it takes forever to warm/melt to the right consistency, and then cleaning up is a pain in my currently-rather-pregnancy-enhanced-behind.

When my friend and Scentsy consultant, Sandy, told me that Scentsy was launching a brand new line of products for delicious and oh-so-easy chocolate fondue I knew that it was meant to be. I can sum Velata up in just a few words: melty, easy, amazing chocolate. ::drool::

Chocolate pouch, warmer, and food for dipping!
This is how my nights have looked since receiving my Noir Velata warmer: plug in warmer, melt chocolate, pour into silicone dish, enjoy, rub super-full belly, put silicone dish in dishwasher, DONE. No waiting for an hour for chocolate to melt, and no annoying clean up.

So far we've tried both the Milk Chocolate and Caramel Chocolate and I can't decide which I like better; they are both excellent. We've dipped apples, marshmallows, strawberries, graham crackers, and when we ran out of all that? Possibly a few other random things that I just happened to find in the pantry. And since I don't believe in wasting even a drop of chocolate, I may or may not have scooped up the rest with my finger ;)

If you don't use all of the chocolate in the dish, you can simply take it out once it hardens, put it in a plastic bag, and refrigerate until you use it again! Each pouch contains about 6 servings of chocolate. Each warmer comes with 4 fondue forks. The forks and the silicone warming dish are dishwasher safe.

I love that my Velata warmer makes it easy (and fun!) for me to enjoy something I love. I think I know what my friends and family will be receiving for their next birthday/holiday gift...

The Velata Story
People said it couldn’t be done. How could you take something as complicated as fondue and make it simple? In a flash of brilliance, it struck them. A small group of clever, chocolate-adoring Scentsy folks had a dazzling idea. What if we served scrumptious chocolate fondue in a plug-and-play, fun-to-use warmer worthy of such fine chocolate?

We set out in search of the world's most perfect, blow-your-mind chocolate. Our journey took us to (where else) Belgium — the world capital of fine chocolate. We found the perfect chocolate with the purest ingredients and the velvetiest (sometimes you have to invent a word) consistency. The kind of chocolate fondue you want to dip into, heart and soul.

Perfect chocolate needs a perfect melt! So we invented a patent-pending silicone dish heated by a light bulb in a hip, fun, smart fondue warmer. Who else but Scentsy could find a hip, fun, smart way to use a light bulb? Whether you are a foodie, a trendsetter, or just someone who thinks of chocolate as its own food group, Velata fondue products are for you.

Check out the fun warmers and to-die-for chocolate at Sandy's Velata website! With milk, dark, caramel, and white chocolate options, there is something for every chocolate lover.

Noir Velata warmer
I am personally teaming up with Sandy to offer a Noir Velata warmer (the one that I have) and one pouch of chocolate (you can choose either Dark or Caramel) to one of my readers!
