I have a journalism background so I'm naturally "nosy." I make it a point to know as much as I can about all things Fairytale Brownies, so if you have any questions, just ask!
We all were so excited at Fairytale Brownies today. Our new classic gift boxes arrived and they are just beautiful!
Soon, when you order brownies from Fairytale, your classic gifts will arrive in the familiar brown box, but instead of the box being lined with purple tissue paper, a purple-starred flap and a silver and brown button enclosure with wishes of "Enjoy" will cover the gift.
The new flap makes it easy to open and re-close the box - in case you don't eat all of your gourmet brownies in one sitting.
Customers who purchase Fairytale classic gifts such as the Fairytale Dozen, Fairytale Medley, or Bar & Sprite Combo, will soon discover our new box for themselves. Of course, we need to use up our old-style boxes first, so don't be disappointed if you don't experience the new box right away.
Be patient. It's coming.Read More »
Make sure fudge brownies are included in your Labor Day party plans this weekend.
Fudge brownies are an all-American dessert. They can be served by themselves on a simple platter or dressed up in a variety of ways.

The dessert possibilities are endless. Think Fairytale Brownies fudge brownies, cookies and bars, and you'll create a dessert they'll ask you to bring back next summer.

After sending three children off to college over the past nine years, I've discovered there are two things that they always need: Money and fudge brownies.
Of course, money will get them through pretty much anything: Laundry, food, gas, dates, entertainment.
But did you know the same could almost be said for fudge brownies? The need for fudge brownies can arise almost any time of the day.
A couple of Cream Cheese Magic Morsels first thing in the morning will hold a student over until a more balanced meal can be consumed later. Just remember the words, "cream cheese," are breakfast words, and put your worries to rest.
Then there's the Peanut Butter fudge brownie - great for a mid-afternoon study snack. Did you know that peanuts are high in protein?
The Walnut Sprite is a single-serving size, and will keep the student's energy up during those long nights of writing essays.
The best brownies, though, are the extra ones your student can share with friends.
Send comfort food to college when you...Read More »
Hey Mike! Mike! What day is it?
Yes, today is hump day, (love that commercial!) but it's also National Raspberry Cake Day. Although we don't have any cake on hand, we DO have something even better - plenty of dark chocolate Raspberry Swirl Brownies.
Fairytale Brownies bakes Raspberry Swirl gourmet brownies in three sizes - 3" x 3" brownies, 3" x 1.5" Sprites and 1.5" x 1.5" Magic Morsels - using imported Italian raspberry puree and other fine quality ingredients.
Celebrate Raspberry Cake Day by snacking on a gourmet brownie by itself, or serving it as a Sundae topped with delicious Raspberry Sauce.
To be honest with you, I've always preferred some of our other brownie flavors (Toffee Crunch, Peanut Butter, Caramel) over the Raspberry Swirl. But I recently had to taste test the raspberry for quality control and it was so delicious, it has become my new favorite flavor. I'm so glad we bake 12 flavors. I can change my mind on favorites quite often!

Everyone loves a fairytale. And when the story includes a baby, well, we women love it even more!
A new little prince was born to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William yesterday and the world rejoiced. Most of us only know the couple from a distance via the media, but that didn't stop us from sharing their baby news with everyone yesterday: It's a Boy!
Now we wait to catch a glimpse of his beautiful face, hear his name and watch him live happily ever after.
At Fairytale Brownies, two mamas, two grandmas, and a great aunt (me!) are still waiting for our own "royal" babies to be born. With each birth announcement, we are so filled with joy for the family. The births may not make the world news, but each one is royal news in our world.
Of course we'll celebrate the births with gourmet brownies, gift baskets of cookies and food gifts galore. With so many varieties of Fairytale treats, even the most disinterested relative will enjoy visiting the new addition to the family.

We have given you a few glimpses of Fairytale Brownies' two new blondie bars to be introduced in September, but I have to tell you - I've had more than a few glimpses and more than a FEW sample TASTES. The Lemon Blondie and Cinnamon Crumb are mouthwateringly tasty.
How should we describe them?
The Lemon Blondie: A combination of cake, cookie and brownie in texture, we combine a touch of tart and a bit of sweet in the batter. Then we top it with lemony icing for pure melt-in-your-mouth enjoyment. So refreshing, you will want to lick your fingers when you're done.
The Cinnamon Crumb: This bar reminds me of apple pie without the apples. Fragrant, spicy cinnamon crumbs mix with crunchy walnuts to createÂ the sweet and memorable taste of home. This bar conjures so many happy childhood memories for me that it could be my new "comfort" food. It's perfect for breakfast, snacks and dessert... Okay, it will work for lunch and dinner, too.
The new bar flavors will be available in September...Read More »
You might think that the only thing beer, brownies and backpacks have in common is the fact that the three words begin with the letter "B." Normally, that would be true. But from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, the three words will come together for a cause.
Beer - Happy Hour at Rose & Crown, 628 E. Adams St., Phoenix. Tickets are $10 and include four full bottles/cans of beer.
Brownies - Snack-sized Walnut Sprites from Fairytale Brownies will be given to attendees.
Backpacks - Half of the ticket price will go towards the Legacy Connection Backpack Buddies program which provides more than 5,000 Phoenix-area elementary school-age children from low-income families with back-to-school supplies and clothing.
Phoenix New Times sponsors a Brews to Benefit happy hour each month at locations considered hip and popular. We hope you can make it to the Rose & Crown this Thursday. If you can't, there's still a way to donate to Legacy's Backpack Buddies. Click here.
