Fairytale's new Cinnamon Crumb Blondie is a hit with most everyone who tries one.
Because the brown sugar treat reminds me of apple pie without the apples, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create an apple "something" with my new favorite blondie. I cut up several Cinnamon Crumb Blondie bars and mixed them with apple pie fililng, cinnamon and some caramel sauce.
I popped the mixture into a 350-degree oven and waited for the kitchen to smell "appley."
I scooped some piping hot Apple Cinnamon Crumb Blondie mixture and placed it in a bowl; then topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I must say, it was heavenly. So much so, that the next day when I went to serve myself another helping, I found an empty serving dish in the sink. Apparently other family members enjoyed the new blondie treat as well and ate it all!
Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the creation. You'll just have to trust me when I say that adding apples, more cinnamon and a little bit of caramel sauce will...Read More »
As we approach the month of December and the upcoming holidays, I find myself reminiscing about the one season we actually ran out of brownies, believe it or not!!!
It was 1997 and we were a few years into the business when we had an unexpected rush on brownies for the holidays, so mid-December we actually ran out of some of our brownie flavors. We were unable to bake anymore of the delectable Belgian chocolate brownies because our very tiny commercial kitchen had been transformed into a shipping department. We only had a limited selection of brownie flavors available, so we made due with what we had. . . . Needless to say, we've never forgotten "the season we ran out of brownies". We've definitely come a long way since then and now occupy a large production facility with plenty of space for baking and shipping, so we plan to never have that problem again!
If you've been a fan of Fairytale Brownies for a while you know that we no longer just carry our famous brownies, but over the...Read More »
As I walked around the facility today, I noticed all the hustle and bustle happening that is all in preparation for the Holiday season - - which is almost upon us! For the last few months of the year, Fairytale Brownies brings on quite a few seasonal team members which include customer service team members, baking team members and shipping team members. When this influx of personnel happens, it gets me really pumped for the coming season. I also really enjoy watching these folks craft our decadent desserts. Brownie, cookie and bar baking is truly an art! Here are a few pics that were snapped in our baking kitchen and shipping warehouse with some of our regular, full-time team members and some of our seasonal team members too.

Working for Fairytale Brownies has given me a much greater appreciation for the hard work that goes into making our delicious gourmet brownies. From the harvest of the cocoa bean to the sweet taste of chocolate, I’ve learned so much in my years working here and have taught many about chocolate and where it comes from. I’m very passionate, and love sharing my knowledge with others and especially love learning something new.
On a recent trip to the Hawaiian Islands, I toured Purdy’s All Natural Macadamia Nut Farm on the island of Molokai and learned so much about this little nut that has become my personal favorite! Ever wonder why these nuts are so pricey? It takes seven years for the mac tree to bear fruit and cannot be harvested until the fruit falls, and then it is gathered by hand. Ninety percent of the world’s macadamia nuts are grown in Hawaii and Purdy’s Farm is one of the few that is family owned and all-natural. It was a great learning experience for me and I had a lots of fun...Read More »
Wow, I can hardly believe it, Fairytale Brownies has just ordered our second container of Callebaut Belgian chocolate to finish baking for the 2013 holiday season . . That means we're baking a heck of a lot of fudgy brownies for the coming holidays!
The container of dark chocolate liquor that we order directly from Callebaut in Belgium takes about 6 weeks to arrive. The container is transported by sea, and then has to clear customs once it arrives in the U.S. We obviously have to allow ourselves enough time for arrival, and also for any glitches that might occur at the port of entry.
Callebaut Belgian chocolate is what makes our Fairytale Brownies so special! We've always baked with this particular type of chocolate and it has become part of our brand. We tested numerous different chocolates when the business started, and throughout the years, but nothing compares to Callebaut. There's something special about Callebaut Belgian chocolate that makes the brownies taste so delectable,...Read More »
