Continuing Our 20 Year Celebration Of Gourmet Brownie Gifts

Each month this year Eileen and I will be sharing a blog post dedicated to our 20 year anniversary celebration.  We founded Fairytale Brownies back in 1992 with the goal of simplifying gift giving and creating the best brownies in the world.  We started baking late at night in a friend's catering kitchen and first conducted business out of my townhome.  In the beginning we wrapped all of the brownies by hand using rolls of plain saran wrap.  One of the first packaging purchases we made was labels for the individually wrapped fudgy chocolate brownies.  So for today's post, I thought I'd show some historical images of our original brownie labels.  When we went to the printer to order the first roll of labels, he asked what color ink we wanted to use.  We hadn't given it much thought and decided to go with purple on the spot.  We thought it was a very regal and bright color.  Since that time purple has become our signature color. 

At that time we didn't even have a logo for the business,...

Take a gourmet cookie break!

peanut butter cookieToday was a day full of meetings and brain-taxing budgeting and calculations in my neck of the Fairytale Brownies bakery. I spent much of the day trying to help my mind keep up with my busy schedule! So this afternoon, I decided I needed to take a break, and headed downstairs to scrounge up a snack (a definite perk of working in a Belgian chocolate brownie and cookie gifts bakery). I managed to find some Peanut Butter cookie "rejects" in our retail store. What's a reject? It's a fudgy chocolate brownie or in this case, a delectable peanut buttery cookie, that is less than perfect. Since we strive to ship only the best brownies and cookies we can possibly make, we hold everything to a very high standard. My Peanut Butter "reject" was delightful, and just the break I needed. You tell me, would you eat this cookie, even though it isn't quite the right size? I bet you would. :)

Fairytale Brownies Spin with Tim!

If you know me, you know I cycle 100 miles per week and spend 9 hours per week at the gym! I'm hard core when it comes to my work outs! I spin with some of the best instructors in the state of Arizona! I spin with Connie, April, Kim, Tom, and of course I "Spin with Tim Phelan"! Tim's classes are a sell out and you must wait 30 minutes prior to class just to sign in to get a bike! ( You can find Tim on Facebook at Spin with Tim Phelan).

I shared Fairytale Brownies and Fairytale Cookies with Tim and his lovely wife Patti at spin class on Saturday. Patti jumped up and down, gave me a hug and said, "Oh, I'm so excited to have Fairytale Brownies, thank you, thank you"! Tim proudly promoted Fairytale Brownies throughout the entire class! Could Tim be the next promoter of Gourmet Chocolate Brownies? I'd say so! As you can see, here is Tim promoting a Fudgy Chocolate Brownie at a sell out crowd at spin class at LA Fitness! I received a very nice note from Tim & Patti saying "Thank you for the...

Baking the world's best brownies!

I spent some time playing with our camera in the Fairytale Brownies kitchen this week, and got a few good shots of our baking team busily handcrafting gourmet brownies and cookies. I thought I would share with you all how our mail order brownies are made before they get packed into boxes and the brownies and cookies are delivered to your door! 

Here is some Belgian chocolate brownie batter being carefully weighed as it is poured onto a baking sheet.

Fairytale Brownies fan's guests receive fudgy brownie for wedding favor

 

 

Customer Katy Stahlman sent in her Fairytale Brownies story:

'Three years ago, I was planning my wedding. I was looking for a wedding favor to give my family and friends that they would love, and not like all the other favors I have seen at other weddings.

I was given a book on discount items for a wedding. In it there was a section on favors, and it had your web site there with the idea of a personalized one. I went to your web site and saw that you could buy the brownies in bulk.

After that, I found my favor for my wedding. All of my guests loved it and each had their own favorite flavor. My favorite flavors are the ones with the nuts in them. Your brownies are the best brownies I have ever tasted.

I was married on August 8, 2009."

Katy - Congratulations on 2 1/2 years of marriage!

Our Custom Label brownies and cookies make great party favors and business giveaways. We can print full-color images or messages on the brownie or cookie label.

Brownies are $2.95 each and cookies are $1.95...

Send brownies and cookies for Valentine treats!

18-Piece Valentine Truffles18-Piece Valentine TrufflesI came across this blog on the Huffington Post today that is a list of the "5 Best Sendable Valentine's Day Treats," and I couldn't help but notice that both brownies and cookies made the list. The author recommends baking one's own delicious treats for a brownie or cookie delivery that the sender has labored over him or herself, but time is growing short for baking, packing and shipping brownies from your own kitchen in time for Valentine's Day.

Fear not. Fairytale Brownies is here with mail order brownies for your chocolate-loving sweetheart and cookies delivered to those whose sweet tooth is of a slightly less chocoholic nature. :) And for those who really can't get enough chocolate in their lives, a decadent gift of 18-Piece Valentine Truffles chocolate-covered mini brownies is the perfect Valentine.
