Thank your vacation host or hostess with gourmet brownies!

Summer is winding down, and what a summer it has been! Wonderful thing about the world of social media, we get to see all the fun vacations our friends and loved ones took. I hope everyone got some sort of fun adventure in before fall begins. I am super excited to be going to Minnesota in a few days to visit friends and family. 

When I vacation, it usually means someone is kind enough to put me up for a week or two. Yes, it would sometimes be nice to stay in a luxurious hotel, but we can't always afford that. Plus I often vacation specifically to see people I love, so staying with them is always a fun part of it! However, I know it can be challenging to host someone for week, so make sure you thank those who helped you have such a wonderful vacation. 

Send your hosts or hostesses gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies. We have made gifting very simple, just go online to brownies.com and order a brownie delivery! Your recipient will be delighted to receive gourmet brownies,...

Bake cookies on your patio or order a cookie delivery?

We ship brownies worldwide, but our bakery and retail location is in Phoenix, Arizona. While the rest of the country looks forward to summer all year, most Phoenicians are anxiously waiting fall and winter again. That is because it is reaching temperatures of 114 degrees right now! Yes, it is a dry heat, but whether you are in a dishwasher or oven it is still hot! And it does feel like an oven around here, so much so that our local news team decided they would try baking cookies outside using the Arizona heat alone!

ABC 15 Arizona put cookie dough on a baking sheet, and then placed it outside on their patio to cook for six hours. Some of their team then tried the cookies to see how it worked. Check out their video to see the brave tasters’ reactions.

Although it may be hot enough to bake cookies outside, we still use the ovens in our bakery to bake the best cookies around! With 6 moist, chewy cookie flavors to try, you are sure to find a favorite. So, it is up to you. Take the chance and...

More than just the best brownie, the best cookies and bars too!

Working for Fairytale Brownies, I am often asked what my favorite flavor is. Well hold on, flavor of what: brownies, cookies, or bars? I am surprised at how many people do not realize that besides making the best brownie ever, we also make delicious chewy cookies and soft, buttery blondie bars.

We may be well known for our brownies, but our cookies and bars are just as delicious. Doc O., from Paradise Valley, Arizona is a big fan of our Fairytale Bars. He said, "These bars are fabulously rich and moist. Worth every calorie!"  And Linda from Manteca, CA loves our cookies, "Sinfully good....everyone was all smiles when I served these cookies." So if you haven't tried our cookies and bars, what are you waiting for?!

Visit brownies.com and order cookies and bars to try. For cookies, I recommend the Fairytale Cookie Dozen. This gift comes with 2 each of our six divine flavors, so you can try them all and find your favorite! If you are interested in trying the bars, then go for the Fairytale...

Capturing the Deliciousness of Gourmet Brownies Through Photography

Most of Fairytale Brownies business is done through mail order. Many people order brownies, cookies and bars online at brownies.com or through a catalog before they even taste them. So it's really important that we have excellent photos of our gourmet desserts. Since you can’t taste the treats, we need to convey just how yummy they are through visuals!

Twice a year, my team and I spend one to two weeks with a professional photographer and food stylists to create the most delicious looking photography that we can. When your brownie delivery arrives, you can tell just by looking at them how great they are going to be, but capturing that in an image takes a lot of time and work. However, it is also a lot of fun!

Our gourmet brownies, cookies and bars really are the stars of the shoot. We spend time making sure each treat looks its best! Of course with all those gourmet brownies around, it is impossible not to treat ourselves to some sweets. After making them look so irresistible how can I not...

5 Reasons to Gift Gourmet Brownies

Gift Gourmet Brownies

It's never been easier to send gourmet brownies to your friends, family and loved ones. Looking for a reason to gift gourmet brownies? Here are 5 to get you started: 

  1. Health Benefits of Chocolate: According to women's health mag, chocolate is now considered a "superfood!" Cacao, the bean chocolate is made from is packed with healthy chemicals like flavonoids and theobromine, which has disease-killing components. Stick to chocolate with at least 70% cacao, you'll reap the benefits. Fairytale Brownies are baked with Callebaut Dark Belgian Chocolate (pure - unsweetened). 
  2. Evoke childhood memories and sensations: According to howstuffworks, smells and tastes can bring on a flood of memories that influence people moods.
