Lover of all things Chocolate

 

Oncidium Sharry Baby - Chocolate OrchidWe all know that chocolate comes in many different forms and seems to be a favorite indulgence for most people. After all, Fairytale Brownies are made from chocolate, Callebaut Belgian Dark Chocolate which is the finest chocolate you will find, as the cocoa beans are selected, roasted, and ground by Callebaut themselves -- which is a rarity among chocolate makers. The beans are actually roasted in their own shell to protect them. That keeps in all of the aromas and subtleties which yields a more intense cocoa flavor.
 
I recently discovered there is another form of chocolate when I received an orchid from Hawaii; the Oncidium Sharry Baby, better known as the chocolate orchid. This is not an edible flower rather a fun and fragrant orchid which fills the room with the sweet scent of chocolate and just a hint of vanilla. I truly am a lover of all things chocolate and now I have the best of both worlds as I smell the aroma of chocolate brownies baking all day long at work and at the end of...

Curl up with a Fairytale and a gourmet brownie!

February 26 is Tell a Fairytale Day. Of course here at Fairytale Brownies everyday is a Fairytale day! Now is the chance for you to get back in touch with your imaginative side. This day is about exploring myths and stories from the traditional, like Jack and the Bean Stalk, to the new, like The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Read some to children or even write your own. Start with the phrase "once upon a time…" and see where your imagination will take you. Read our story and heritage below for some inspiration. Of course what would go better with a fairytale than a delicious gourmet brownie or gourmet cookie from Fairytale Brownies. So snack on a fudgy gourmet brownie and curl up with your favorite fairytale.

Pure intentions. Pure ingredients. ‘One Pure Promise’.

Once upon a time, two happy kindergartners met on the playground. With a purity of heart known only to children, they imagined that one day they’d spread joy throughout the world. They knew it could happen...if only...

Three reasons to eat a Fairytale Brownies dark chocolate treat every day

Researchers have been telling us for years that dark chocolate is good for us. As a chocolate lover, I don't need to be convinced of the benefits, but based on what I've read, I've come to the conclusion that eating one Fairytale brownie a day is actually good for me.

Consider this: Each Fairytale brownie is baked with Belgian dark chocolate - 100% dark cocoa.

1. Dark chocolate is good for the heart. Studies show that a 3.5 oz dark chocolate bar eaten every day by people who have high blood pressure can lower that blood pressure and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol. Although I don't have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, if I've done the math correctly, that means I could enjoy one Fairytale Brownies Chocolate Chip fudge brownie (210 calories for a 3" x 1.5" Sprite) a day. I WILL have to shave a couple hundred calories from my diet, however...

2. Dark chocolate is an anti-depressant.  Dark chocolate contains serotonin and stimulates pleasure endorphins. Combine the serotonin and the...

A Fairytale Brownies Blast From the Past!

Fairytale MugI recently journeyed home for a brief visit and to my great surprise, my mom served my morning cup of coffee in a Fairytale Brownies coffee mug!  I didn't realize that this little gem was still around, it's been quite some time and I don't have any left of my own.  Some of our customers may recall that years ago we sold coffee mugs in gift packages that contained coffee and cocoa, along with Fairytale Brownies.

Our gift line has definitely evolved over the years, and not only do we offer our fudgy Belgian chocolate brownies in a variety of delectable flavors and different sizes, we also offer a delicious line of Fairytale Cookies and Fairytale Bars.  We carry a variety of combo gifts that allow you to taste a little bit of everything!

This Fall we'll be adding two new flavors to our Fairytale Bar line, along with some beautiful new gift packaging, so you'll be able to impress your friends, family and colleagues with gourmet gifts that are sure to please even the most...

They'll get well soon with Fairytale's cheery, new gift band

This may sound a little wierd, but I love the design of our new Get Well Soon gift band so much that I can't wait for someone I know to be sick so I can send out a gift!

Luckily, I won't have to wait too long. My husband is having surgery today and this cheery box of Belgian chocolate brownies will be waiting for him when he gets home. I believe he'll definitely mend quicker between eating gourmet brownies and having his lovely wife tending to his needs.

The new band features a brilliant sun beaming its rays throughout the Fairytale forest of flowers. We all know that sunshine always makes people happy (unless you live in Arizona, it's August and you're stuck on the I10... but that's a different story).

The Get Well Soon gift band fits on all of our classic gift boxes, and a smaller version of the band fits our purple treasure boxes as well.

Even those watching their weight can enjoy an occasional Fairytale Brownies treat

January is the month when people set new goals or reaffirm old ones. It's the month when nearly EVERYONE vows to eat healthier and lose weight. I am one of those people.

I have always been on the fluffier side of physically fit. I can say I was happy with my weight about five times in my life - three of those times were just before I became pregnant for each of my boys (obviously my husband appreciated my weight at those times as well!). I love food. I love preparing it, eating it, serving it and giving it. Maybe it's my Italian upbringing... The reason doesn't matter. My love is a fact.

So here I am, working at a company that bakes the most delicious gourmet brownies, chewy cookies and buttery bars I've ever eaten. How to I keep from weighing several hundred pounds? I eat our products in small doses so I don't crave them every day. There are others who work at Fairytale who can eat a whole fudge brownie every day and not gain any weight. I'm not one of them.

I was in Las Vegas last week...
