Send brownies to your cousins for their special day

I grew up in a large Italian family in small town in northern New York. We seemed to be related to everyone.

cousins day, gourmet brownies, send brownies

The good thing about having a large family was being able to spend time with my cousins. It didn't matter whose house we visited - theirs or ours - there always was someone to hang out with and always something to do.

gourmet brownies, send browniesDid you know that July 24 is Cousin's Day? Now you have an excuse to send brownies to your favorite cousins to let them know you're thinking about them.

July 24 also is National Tequila Day. Because I like tequila, my perfect Cousin's Day would be to hang out with my cousins, eat gourmet brownies and drink tequila.

It would be a magical day. :)

Pair Fudgy Chocolate Brownies with Ice Cream for National Ice Cream Day!

July 20 is National Ice Cream Day, the perfect excuse to beat the heat and enjoy some cool treats! This holiday was designated by Ronald Reagan in 1984. He declared the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day and July as National Ice Cream Month. So if one day isn't enough for you, you can go crazy all month!

My favorite pairing with ice cream is fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookies! Order brownies delivered to you today, and enjoy the delicious pairing of Fairytale treats with ice cream! I recommend ordering bulk of the Toffee Crunch Brownie and pairing it with butter pecan ice cream. Yum!

You could also get creative and make your own ice cream and ice cream desserts. Look at my blog on homemade ice cream, where I explain how to make homemade vanilla and peanut butter brownie ice cream! We also have several ice cream recipes on brownies.com! Let Fairytale Brownies co-founders Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz instruct you on how to create their favorite fudge brownie...

Serve Pecan Blondies in Celebration of National Pecan Pie Day

blondie

Pecan Pie. Yes, it's normally a Thanksgiving Day dessert, but we're thinking about it in July because July 12th is National Pecan Pie Day.

If pecan pie isn't on your list of items to bake in July, you might want to save time and order a food gift of buttery brown sugar bars from Fairytale Brownies.

A Fairytale Brownies Pecan Blondie tastes so much like pecan pie, you might as well top it with vanilla ice cream and dig in. I believe Fairytale's Pecan Blondie recipe is so close to tasting like "real" pecan pie that the only ingredients missing are corn syrup and bourbon...

Hmm. Forget the corn syrup. But you might want to drink the bourbon by the pool while you savor your Pecan Blondie.

Stay Cool Through Dog Days of Summer With Gourmet Brownies

gourmet browniesAccording to the Old Farmer's Almanac, July 3 marks the beginning of the Dog Days of Summer because it coincides with the rising of the Dog Star, Sirius. Although the rising of Sirius doesn't affect the weather, temperatures seem to climb as well as our cravings for frozen treats.

Our Fairytale Brownies buddy, Chuy, isn't concerned about the Dog Star or the weather. But he is serious about gourmet brownies... and buttery bars... and, of course, chewy "chuy" cookies.

Chuy recommends using Fairytale Brownies treats for all of your summer desserts. Store fudge brownies, cookies and bars in the freezer and thaw as needed. (Some customers enjoy our products frozen!) Serve Fairytale Brownies treats by themselves or as a part of a frozen confection like an Ice Cream Sandwich or Ice Cream Sundae. Or create a brownie trifle, a brownie parfait, or a brownie pie.

Keep cool through the Dog Days of Summer with gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies.

Order brownies to celebrate baseball season

order brownies for a baseball gameThis summer, much of the world’s attention has been on soccer and the World Cup. That’s fine by us, but let’s be honest about one thing.

In this country, summertime is all about baseball.

During baseball season, you might bring a gift basket of bite-size Magic Morsels to a celebration of your Little League team’s last game. Or you might order brownies by the half-dozen to sneak into a big league game with the family.

Or, if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you could bake a gift basket full of baseball-themed treats.

The Gunny Sack blogger Tonia posted a fun recipe for baking cookie cups in the shape of baseball caps. We love the idea of letting the kids decorate the cookie cups in their team colors after they emerge from the oven.

Tonia explained the inspiration behind the cookies on her blog.

“The last time that I made cookie cups, a few of them overflowed in the mini muffin tin. When I popped them out once they were cool, I noticed that the when they were upside down, they looked like baseball...

Show your love with custom food gifts

custom food gift cookiesYou’ve heard the old adage that the path to a man’s heart is through his stomach. A couple of teenaged boys turned that idea on its head by creating custom food gifts to show their prom dates that that they care.

The Watertown Daily News of New York reported this summer that two local teens asked out their prom dates with custom-made desserts. And they went a bit further than ordering cookies or bite-size Magic Morsels in our heartfelt Thinking of You band.

William Serota formed cookie dough into the shape of the characters: P-R-O-M-?. When the cookies were done baking, he sent his date Carly Sullivan to the kitchen to check on them. Fortunately, she said yes.

Meanwhile, their classmate Jake Turck ordered Chinese food with a special fortune cookie in it. When his date Cassie Birth opened it, a note reading “Will you go to prom with me? – Jake” fell out. Again, she said yes.

Yes, prom season is behind us. But these heart-warming stories reminded us of the power of custom food gifts to show your...
