We were excited to learn that July 23 is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day. We love vanilla at Fairytale Brownies.
You may be wondering what Fairytale Brownies knows about vanilla. That‚Äôs OK. After all, we‚Äôre best known for our Belgian chocolate brownies.
In 2012, we introduced a new line of brownie gifts with vanilla and brown sugar ‚Äď instead of fudge ‚Äď as a key ingredient. Our new Fairytale Bars are already a hit, as we learned from Doc Owen of Paradise Valley, Ariz.. He rated the bars five stars and wrote: ‚ÄúThese new bars are fabulously rich and moist.‚ÄĚ
Each bar begins with fine cake flour, organic vanilla extract, pure creamery butter, and dark brown sugar. The difference is in the toppings! Today, we offer four flavors: Cheesecake Swirl, Chocolate Chip Blondie, Pecan Blondie, and Raspberry White Chocolate. You can try all four varieties in our Fairytale Bar Dozen.
Plus, we‚Äôll soon be adding two new flavors to the mix. Get ready for Cinnamon Crumb and Lemon Blondie. We can‚Äôt wait for...Read More Ľ

Welcome new Fairytale Brownies baby, Hilary Nicole! Hilary was born on Friday, May 3rd and weighed 6lbs 8oz. The lucky new mom is none other than one of our fabulous Fairytale Brownies bakers, Maria Vega!
There must be something in the water, or chocolate brownie batter, in our case. . . . we have quite a few team members who will become grandmothers this year, along with two other brownie team members who will be having their babies in the Fall. It's so wonderful to watch the extended Fairytale Brownies family grow!
I wonder if any of them will be receiving a Welcome New Baby gift from Fairytale Brownies? Mom will surely appreciate the yummy variety of gourmet goodies, like fudgy Belgian chocolate brownies and scrumptious cookies. . . perfectly indulgent snacks anytime, especially late nights awake with new baby!

It's time to say thank you to those all important women in our lives, mothers! I know my mom is looking forward to her brownie delivery from Fairytale Brownies, but Mother's Day is not only about one's own mother but the other great mothers in our lives. This year I am excited to send a brownie delivery to my boyfriend's mom. Whenever we travel to Minnesota to visit, she always welcomes me into her home and makes me feel like part of the family. I want to show her how much I appreciate all she's done for me and for what a great job she has done raising her son and daughter.¬†
A friend of mine did something amazing last week. She saved a life by donating bone marrow to an anonymous leukemia patient somewhere in the United States. She was matched with this person because she is on the Be the Match bone marrow registry, and answered the call when she was identified as a potential match for someone. I am also on the registry, and hope to someday receive that call as well.¬†
The process, while nothing compared to lengthy cancer treatments that her marrow recipient has faced, is a bit painful, time-consuming, and energy draining. So I thought, what better gift to recover from saving someone's life than a personalized brownie gift? I know I would appreciate some Belgian chocolate brownies if I were recovering from such an exhausting procedure.
So I sent her this Photo Morsel Dozen¬†with a picture of my daughter from an especially funny dinner we had with my friend and her husband. Long story short, my daughter was 6 months old and ended up trying to lie down and sleep...Read More Ľ
When David & I quit our corporate jobs to be our own boss and create our own brand in 1992, we took his mom's brownie recipe with the goal of baking the best brownies in the world!
Millions and millions of Belgian Chocolate Fairytale Brownies later, we take the time to share with others what we have learned. Recently, the kids from the business class at Metro Tech High School visited and today I received a pile of thank you notes.
The notes reminded me how it is so much more than baking the best brownies ever... So many of the notes thanked me for helping them realize that with drive and perseverence you can go for what you want in life. You can make your own Fairytale come true, thanks for sweetening my day!
