Easter Treats Starring Velata

By Tim Hays Easter is one of my favorite holidays. It combines two of my favorite things: family and brunch! My Easter mornings are generally focused on mountains of cheesy scrambled eggs, orange roll after orange roll after orange roll, and of course … BACON.   Last year we brought you some easy and exceptionally adorable Easter Recipes using Velata chocolate right here on the blog. We loved it, you loved it, and we decided to do another one this year! Velata has grown a lot in the past 12 months. Raclette Tabletop Grills are steadily taking over kitchen counters and family dining rooms across the country. Because of this new sensation, we decided to do one recipe featuring something delicious and easy that you can make on the Raclette! Fried Eggvocado and Hash Browns This one was really simple. We just took the center slice of an avocado and sliced out a slightly bigger hole than the pit had left. Then we just slapped it on the Raclette and cracked an egg in the middle. At the same time ...

Simple, Healthy Sides with the Velata Raclette

By Amanda Hammond Spring is officially underway in our neck of the woods, and this weekend marked the season’s unofficial start with the opening of local farmers’ markets! Across the valley, huge tents are popping up in dusty parking lots and being filled with red-and-white-striped wooden boxes bursting with fresh produce; shelves lined with bedding plants, each one a promise of things to come; and hanging baskets overflowing with the tiniest pink, blue, and white flowers. Seeing all this wonderful plant life represented in the colors of the rainbow fills me with joy and warmth for this time of year. Of course, all those fruits and veggies lined up next to each other also makes me hungry! I decided to do a little research on what veggies might be good to plant in the garden this year that would also work well on my Velata Raclette. So I grabbed a handful of green bean, carrots, and broccoli, and each night this week I paired a veggie with a Velata Artisan Rub and a simple main dish. Below a ...

Vote for Bring Back My Bar in April!

Give me a B! Give me a B! Give me an M! Give me another B! What does that spell? Bring — Back — My — Bar! Whether you were the queen bee or rocked all four years as a mysterious wallflower, we’re taking you back to high school — temporarily — this month to vote for your favorite retired Scentsy Fragrances. And unlike those votes you submitted for Prom Queen senior year (talk about politics!), your efforts here will count BIG. Now, I don’t want to scare you, but I am going to ask you to do a little homework before you cast your votes. Nothing major, and you won’t be graded, but there are a few things to consider before you start making your fragrance selections: History: Think back… for some of you, maybe WAY back… to when your nose was unequivocally, deliriously happy. Warming Baked Brown Sugar back in 2005? Or Bananarama in the spring of 2007? This is no time to settle for a sub-par scent. Pick the ones YOU love most, and start voting li ...

Roosevelt's Journey with March of Dimes

Everyone loves babies and everyone loves bunnies. Put them together and you've got the makings of a serious cuteness overload — and for Scentsy and the March of Times, big support for a great cause. We are SO excited to be featuring a Charitable Cause Buddy that will benefit the March of Dimes, and are thrilled at your encouraging response to this new opportunity to give back. Not only is Roosevelt the Rabbit one of our cutest, softest and sweetest Buddies to date, he is good for so much more than snuggling. For ever Roosevelt that is sold, $6.50 will go straight to the March of Dimes. He's cute AND considerate — just in time for Easter! Did you know that the March of Dimes was founded by Franklin D. Roosevelt? We bet you can guess where we got the inspiration for our Buddy’s name! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the great things March of Dimes does today, we thought a little interview with them would be the perfect way to introduce you. We asked our local chapter o ...

Easter Treats Starring Velata

By Tim Hays

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. It combines two of my favorite things: family and brunch! My Easter mornings are generally focused on mountains of cheesy scrambled eggs, orange roll after orange roll after orange roll, and of course … BACON.  

Last year we brought you some easy and exceptionally adorable Easter Recipes using Velata chocolate right here on the blog. We loved it, you loved it, and we decided to do another one this year!

Velata has grown a lot in the past 12 months. Raclette Tabletop Grills are steadily taking over kitchen counters and family dining rooms across the country. Because of this new sensation, we decided to do one recipe featuring something delicious and easy that you can make on the Raclette!

Fried Eggvocado and Hash Browns

This one was really simple. We just took the center slice of an avocado and sliced out a slightly bigger hole than the pit had left. Then we just slapped it on the Raclette and cracked an egg in the middle. At the same time, the hash browns cooked on the other side!

What you need: Velata Raclette Tabletop Grill, Velata Chef’s Knife, 1 avocado, 1 egg, 1 potato, vegetable oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

White Chocolate Bunny Cookies

I think I’ll name him Gary. These were equally easy to make. First, I lucked out by finding a bunny shaped cookie cutter in by cupboard. After that it was as simple as baking some sugar cookies, heating up some Velata White Chocolate, and adding a little food coloring and sprinkles for his (or her) features! P.S. We used a toothpick to carve in the whiskers.

What you need: Velata White Chocolate, red food coloring, a black sprinkle, purple sprinkles, and sugar cookie dough.

We hope you have fun trying these out! Share your creations with us using #velata, and let us know if you have any other fun ideas in the comments below!
