how can I dump out a variable with its value? The following does not

myVar1 = 1;
myVar2 = 2;
DumpVars[list_List] :=
  MapThread[(Print[#1, ": ", #2]) &, {Map[ToString[#] &,
     Unevaluated[list]], list}];

DumpVar[var_] := Print[ToString[Unevaluated[var]], ":", var];

DumpVars[{myVar1, myVar2}]

Any ideas?

Kind regards,
