First and foremost, I am NOT a lover of chocolate.  Crazy, right?!  I would much prefer a salty bag of popcorn over a piece of chocolate cake any day.  I like chocolate, but sweets just aren’t my thing.

After saying that, I may have to rethink my view on all things chocolate, because I have found THE BEST CHOCOLATE EVER!  It’s from a brand new company called Velata, and they make chocolate fun through FONDUE!

Velata is a direct selling company that opened May 1st, 2012, under the Scentsy family umbrella (find out more about Scentsy here).  It is the same concept as Scentsy, but you use the special warmer to warm chocolate fondue.

Each fondue warmer uses a silicone dish to hold the chocolate.  The fondue is warmed with a 25-watt light  bulb, so there is absolutely no flame or smoke to worry about.  And no scorching, whatsoever!  Use the dimmer switch at first on high to melt your chocolate, then turn it to low to keep it warm.

The chocolate comes in 4 delicious flavors: Milk, Caramel Milk, Dark and White.  The Caramel Milk is my favorite!  The warmers come in many colors and shapes too!

Once you’re finished with the chocolate (if you haven’t licked the dish clean already), you can remove the silicone dish, wrap it up and keep it in the fridge for a later date.  So easy!!

I got my warmer in the mail last Monday, & my hubby has wanted to fondue every night since!  It’s really that good.  The fun part is trying to come up with different dippers.  So far, we’ve dipped apples, cookies, grapes, pineapple, chips, pretzels, marshmallows, graham crackers and popcorn.  Everything I’ve tried has been delicious!

I took my Velata to a party this past weekend, and there was nothing left in the dish to clean up.  It was a hit!!

So check out Velata and all the cute warmers here:

Trust this salty-snack-lovin’-housewife…this chocolate fondue stuff is fun and delicious!!

    Gosh, I just freakin’ love fondue and need to stop making it EVER b/c it is so good and I eat way too much whenever I do! I tend to favor cheese fondues though, so these pics aren’t quite as drool-worthy for me as they could be! 🙂

  2. DELICIOUSNESS! Totally ordering this! Thanks for the link!
