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.

Of course, you know what the best dessert to pair with cherries… Fairytale Brownies! Fudgy chocolate brownies and cherries go amazing together, in fact they are one of my favorite combinations.

Celebrate Chocolate Day with Belgian Chocolate Brownies

July 7th is Chocolate Day, and what better way to celebrate it than with some Belgian chocolate brownies from Fairytale Brownies? When you first take a bite of our rich, fudge brownies you will amaze at the decadent flavor. The reason our brownies taste so delicious is because we start with premium ingredients like farm-fresh eggs and real creamery butter. Of course the star ingredient is the chocolate, more specifically, imported Callebaut Belgian dark chocolate!

When you taste Fairytale Brownies the chocolate is sweet and oh so yummy, but did you know the chocolate you taste actually came from a vegetable? Yes, chocolate is produced from the exotic cocoa bean trees which grow in the warm and humid equatorial belt. The trees produce cocoa beans, and the seeds inside are harvested, dried, cleaned, and then roasted. The shell is then removed to produce cocoa nibs, which are then put into grinders so that they can first be ground coarsely, then to a super fine cocoa liquor. Cocoa butter...

Ice Cream Brownie Sandwiches

Now that summer has "un"officially started (here in AZ it's been record temps all week, 110o and above), it's time to break out the ice cream recipes to cool off! Fairytale Brownies Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect fudgy chocolate brownies mixed with cool, vanilla bean ice cream smothered in the middle to refresh yourself after a hot afternoon. Here's the recipe:

  • 12 Fairytale Brownies (of any flavor). Pick brownies up at your local retailer (see locations here), or visit brownies.com and order brownies online for delivery.

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...

Rich, Callebuat Belgian chocolate vs. Spicy Mexican Chocolate

Having traveled to Los Cabos, Mexico recently, I noticed many delicious confections made with Mexican chocolate that I was dying to try. This got me wondering what exactly Mexican chocolate was and how did it differ from the rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate that Fairytale Brownies uses to bake our decadent treats. Here's what I found:

Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a grainy, less smooth chocolate. It is frequently bought in disks, though you can also purchase the chocolate in bar and syrup form. The traditional uses for Mexican chocolate are hot drinks such as Atole (served with tamales), Champurrado (served as a dessert with churros or a sweet bread called Pan Dulce) and Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Mexican Chocolate

Other popular uses for Mexican chocolate are in Tejate (a cold drink made of dark chocolate, corn masa, cocoa flowers, then marinated and frothed), and Mole (a sauce filled with spices, tomato and...
