Bake Chocolate Mint Brownies, or buy online!

St. Patrick's Day is around the corner so it's time to start thinking green . . . and minty! 

Personally, I am a huge fan of the chocolate and mint flavor combination; these two flavors baked together in brownie form is simply divine. So, I went on the hunt for the most mouthwatering Chocolate Mint Brownie recipe I could find (to satisfy those home bakers), and boy did I luck out. Think York Peppermint Patty combined with fudgy chocolate brownie batter. Hello delicious. 

With repost permission, here is a Chocolate Mint Brownie recipe I found from The Brown Eyed Baker for you to enjoy. Photo credit: The Brown Eyed Baker. Recipe used with permission from The Brown Eyed Baker.

Of course if you don't want to bake your own Chocolate Mint Brownies to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, you can always order fudgy chocolate mint brownies online from Fairytale Brownies. Imagine cool mint hand-drizzled over rich Callebaut Belgian Chocolate. Or, try Fairytale Brownies Mint Chocolate Cookies. Imagine...

Invite Belgian Chocolate Brownies to your next party

I have many hostess friends out there, that just love throwing parties and get togethers. It is just so fun to bring friends and family together, and to remember the important things in life. Of course, we like to show off a bit and get creative as well, especially with food! I know people who have put out quite and impressive spread at their parties, sometimes they cook it themselves, but other times they either don't have the time or prefer to serve something they know will be a hit. Like Belgian Chocolate Brownies, moist cookies, and chewy bars from Fairytale Brownies.

Belgian chocolate brownie gifts for March Madness

March Madness is upon us! In honor of one of our favorite sporting events, we thought it’d be fun to introduce you to some of college basketball’s tastiest mascots. Alas, we scoured the Internet and came up a little shy. belgian chocolate brownie gift

There’s the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs. The slugs probably aren’t tasty, but we like bananas. There’s the Penn Quakers. Again, we wouldn’t eat a Quaker, but we do enjoy oatmeal. And there’s the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns, who could probably cook up a mean plate of jambalaya.

Since college basketball isn’t offering up the goods, here are a few tasty brownie gifts for your March Madness party.

  • Fairytale Dozen: From cool Mint Chocolate to crunchy Pecan, this delicious brownie gift includes every magical flavor and comes hand packed in a classic gift box, wrapped in our signature purple band.

A Twenty Year Fairytale with Fairytale Brownies!

I never thought I'd still be here, but twenty years later here I am still working at Fairytale Brownies, and what a Fairytale it's been!

This "Fairytale Journey" (as I call it) began when I answered a want ad in the Arizona State University school paper.  At the time I was hired to sell our delicious gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies at street fairs, festivals and farmer's markets across the Valley.  I also helped out wherever I was needed - in a small entrepreneurial start-up, everyone does everything.  Some days that meant cracking eggs to help Mike (Eileen's husband and our first baker) and Ron (neighborhood friend, baker, band member) in the kitchen, delivering brownies to grocery stores, working our tiny retail shop, taking orders over the phone. . . the list goes on and on!  As the word got out and we attended more events, people began asking if we would ship Fairytale Brownies to family and friends, so we did, and that's how the mail order aspect of the business came to be.  Now...

Brownie gifts and cookie baskets with toffee

If you didn’t get enough sweets during the holidays, you’re in luck! That’s because January 8 is National Toffee Day and, believe us, we’ve got your toffee cravings covered. We deliver brownie gifts and cookie baskets with toffee taking center stage.

We’ll tell you more about our toffee desserts in a bit. First, here are a few facts about toffee, courtesy of Wikipedia.

  • Toffee is made by caramelizing sugar or molasses along with butter and (sometimes) flour. The mixture is heated until its temperature exceeds 300 degrees!
  • The Oxford English Dictionary traces the word “toffee” as far back as 1825. Apparently, it was used first as a variation of taffy. Makes sense to us!
  • The two most popular toffees in the U.S. are honeycomb toffee and English toffee. Interestingly, our English toffee is far different from the toffee enjoyed in England itself.

Fairytale Brownies Holiday Season Blast From the Past!

As we approach the month of December and the upcoming holidays, I find myself reminiscing about the one season we actually ran out of brownies, believe it or not!!!

It was 1997 and we were a few years into the business when we had an unexpected rush on brownies for the holidays, so mid-December we actually ran out of some of our brownie flavors.  We were unable to bake anymore of the delectable Belgian chocolate brownies because our very tiny commercial kitchen had been transformed into a shipping department.  We only had a limited selection of brownie flavors available, so we made due with what we had. . . . Needless to say, we've never forgotten "the season we ran out of brownies".  We've definitely come a long way since then and now occupy a large production facility with plenty of space for baking and shipping, so we plan to never have that problem again!

If you've been a fan of Fairytale Brownies for a while you know that we no longer just carry our famous brownies, but over the...

Baking Gourmet Brownies, Cookies & Bars for the Holiday Season!

As I walked around the facility today, I noticed all the hustle and bustle happening that is all in preparation for the Holiday season - - which is almost upon us! For the last few months of the year, Fairytale Brownies brings on quite a few seasonal team members which include customer service team members, baking team members and shipping team members. When this influx of personnel happens, it gets me really pumped for the coming season. I also really enjoy watching these folks craft our decadent desserts. Brownie, cookie and bar baking is truly an art! Here are a few pics that were snapped in our baking kitchen and shipping warehouse with some of our regular, full-time team members and some of our seasonal team members too.

Fairytale Brownies & Callebaut Belgian Chocolate

Wow, I can hardly believe it, Fairytale Brownies has just ordered our second container of Callebaut Belgian chocolate to finish baking for the 2013 holiday season . .  That means we're baking a heck of a lot of fudgy brownies for the coming holidays!

The container of dark chocolate liquor that we order directly from Callebaut in Belgium takes about 6 weeks to arrive.  The container is transported by sea, and then has to clear customs once it arrives in the U.S.  We obviously have to allow ourselves enough time for arrival, and also for any glitches that might occur at the port of entry. 

Callebaut Belgian chocolate is what makes our Fairytale Brownies so special!  We've always baked with this particular type of chocolate and it has become part of our brand.  We tested numerous different chocolates when the business started, and throughout the years, but nothing compares to Callebaut.  There's something special about Callebaut Belgian chocolate that makes the brownies taste so delectable,...
