Thank friends, family, teachers, and mentors with gourmet brownies!

It is graduation time and many people are sending delicious gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies to congratulate all the grads out there. I am graduating in a week myself, with a Bachelor's Degree in graphic design! In the midst of all the celebrating I think it is important to remember those who have supported and helped me reach my academic and career goals. 

What better way to say thank you to my friends, family, teachers, and mentors than with a thank you gift from Fairytale Brownies! I know they are going to really appreciate the gesture. Not only is the presentation elegant with beautifully crafted packaging, but wait until they try the fudgy brownies, cookies, and bars! You can choose from a number of different sizes and varieties. I suggest the Thank You 8 sprite favor, especially for teachers, or the Thank You Morsel 24 for those extra special people, like parents! 

So graduates, while you're celebrating, don't forget those who have helped you along the way! Thank you...

Kitchen catastrophe? Next time order brownie gifts or cookie baskets

If baking brownies, cookies, and other gourmet desserts was easy, we’d all do it. Right? Well, most of us certainly try. And most of us succeed. At least most of the time.

And then some times, we don’t. Instead, we’re left with no other option but to laugh at ourselves and our cringe-worthy kitchen catastrophes. In these moments, we probably wonder why we didn’t just order brownie gifts or cookie baskets instead.  

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these pictures of ultimate baking failures are worth a thousand laughs.

(Thank you to good-natured Reddit users for posting their embarrassing photos and to Huffington Post for collecting 14 of the best into an article entitled: Cookie Fail: Reasons You Should Be Easier On Yourself When You Mess Up.)

We’ve included two of our favorite cookie fails in this post. For example, check out the picture above of peanut butter cookies that were so hard that they broke the spatula. Or, enjoy the photo below of chocolate chip cookies that seem...

Drop your business card into the Fairytale fish bowl for a chance to win a dozen gourmet brownies

Chances are, if you've ever been inside our store at the Fairytale Brownies bakery, you've dropped a business card into our fish bowl for a chance to win a Fairytale Dozen. This month, your chances of winning are pretty good because there are only SIX entries in the bowl!

The sign says that those who put their card into the bowl not only will be entered in the monthly drawing, but they will be added to our mailing list for catalogs and email specials. This doesn't mean that you only can enter once. Each time you come into the bakery, you are allowed to drop a card in the bowl. Of course, we only put your name on our mailing list one time, so don't worry about receiving a zillion catalogs or emails if you enter more than once.

When you win, we will notify you via phone or email to schedule a pick up. If you are visiting from another state (not Arizona), we will ship the fudgy chocolate brownies to you.

While visiting the bakery, you might want to watch the bakers through our viewing...

Why didn’t the cookie thief just send cookie gift baskets?

Mail order cookie gift basketOur favorite story of the young year came to us last month from Germany.

A person dressed as Sesame Street’s cookie monster stole a 44-pound gilded cookie statue from a bakery and held it for ransom. The ransom? He insisted that the bakery’s owners send cookies to a local children’s hospital.

Reading the story, we couldn’t help but wonder why he didn’t just send cookies from Fairytale Brownies. That’s right. In addition to gourmet brownies, we create delicious cookie baskets too. Here are three of our top-rated cookie baskets:

  • 6-Cookie Favor. Just dipping your toe in the cookie waters? Start with six flavors of chewy Fairytale Cookies tucked inside a silver and purple favor box.
  • Fairytale Cookie 32. Ready to go big? This assortment of 32 delicious Fairytale Cookies is lovingly packed in our classic gift box and wrapped with our signature purple tissue.
  • Cookie & Brownie Combo. Our six most popular gourmet brownies accompany all six moist and chewy Fairytale Cookie flavors in our classic gift...

Fairytale Brownies: A Review & Great Gift Idea

Recently, Rita from Chi Town Cheapskate wrote a really cool review of Fairytale Brownies Gourmet Brownie Gifts. I thought it was such a nice review, I decided to repost! 

Via http://www.chitowncheapskate.com/

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know about you but a nice chocolaty decadent brownie is my idea of the ultimate indulgence and an excellent stress reliever. The brownies from Fairytale Brownies certainly fit the bill!

For my review I was sent a Classic Tower with consisted of:

(6) Fairytale Brownies
(6) Fairytale Sprites
(6) Magic Morsels
(4) Fairytale Cookies
(4) Fairytale Bars

The package arrived in a very nice tower of boxes as pictured above.  When it arrived we were literally just headed out the door for a camping trip and I planned on bringing it along as a treat to share around the fire. It didn’t happen quite that way. My family insisted they could not wait and had to have a taste before we left. Much...

Giving Gourmet Brownie Gifts and the Gift of Play

This past Saturday, November 10th a small group of Fairytale Brownies Team Members participated in a KaBOOM! playground build benefitting the De Colores family shelter in Phoenix, AZ.  KaBOOM! is a national non-profit that envisions a playground within walking distance of every child in America and Fairytale Brownies has been partnering with them beginning in 2001.  Since that time Fairytale Brownies and our fundraising partners have donated more than $100,000, along with brownies, cookies and time.

Our Fairytale Team Members are not only dedicated to providing the best fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookies, they are also deeply committed to helping our community.  Each time that KaBOOM! conducts a playground build in the Phoenix area, we try and send volunteers to assist in the effort.  For this build we sent a team of six hardworking volunteers to build a playground in only six hours!

It's always hard work but also a lot of fun to be involved in a playground build.  Watching the...
