Invite Belgian Chocolate Brownies to your next party

I have many hostess friends out there, that just love throwing parties and get togethers. It is just so fun to bring friends and family together, and to remember the important things in life. Of course, we like to show off a bit and get creative as well, especially with food! I know people who have put out quite and impressive spread at their parties, sometimes they cook it themselves, but other times they either don't have the time or prefer to serve something they know will be a hit. Like Belgian Chocolate Brownies, moist cookies, and chewy bars from Fairytale Brownies.

You're guests will not be able to resist our amazingly delicious gourmet treats! We have a lot of different options to choose from! I will layout some of my top suggestions!

Crowd Pleasers- These assortments are large enough to go around and you can choose whether you want just brownies, or an assortment with cookies and bars as well. I suggest the Cookie & Sprite Extravaganza. 48 snack-size Fairytale Sprites are...

Just looking at it makes my mouth water and gets me excited for Spring. But why just look, when we can taste! Let's recreate this delicious spread!

Belgian chocolate brownie gifts for March Madness

March Madness is upon us! In honor of one of our favorite sporting events, we thought it’d be fun to introduce you to some of college basketball’s tastiest mascots. Alas, we scoured the Internet and came up a little shy. belgian chocolate brownie gift

There’s the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs. The slugs probably aren’t tasty, but we like bananas. There’s the Penn Quakers. Again, we wouldn’t eat a Quaker, but we do enjoy oatmeal. And there’s the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns, who could probably cook up a mean plate of jambalaya.

Since college basketball isn’t offering up the goods, here are a few tasty brownie gifts for your March Madness party.

  • Fairytale Dozen: From cool Mint Chocolate to crunchy Pecan, this delicious brownie gift includes every magical flavor and comes hand packed in a classic gift box, wrapped in our signature purple band.
  • Regal Tower: Wow your friends and loved ones with this impressive four-box tower filled with three sizes of Belgian chocolate brownies, chewy Fairytale Cookies and buttery...

Fudgy chocolate brownies or pie? You decide

Excuse us for getting a little nerdy here, but today is Pi Day. Get it? It’s March 14th. That’s 3/14. And the numeric version of pi is 3.14159 … You get the idea. fudgy chocolate brownies

At Fairytale Brownies, we don’t do pie. We do fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookies. And they are delicious. But, hey, we know there’s room for pie too, especially on Pi Day.

In a 2012 survey of 14,000 Americans, NPR found that our nation’s most popular pie is good old fashioned apple pie. That’s probably not surprising if you’re familiar with the saying, “It’s as American as apple pie.”

Seventeen percent of respondents listed apple as their favorite. Surprisingly, strawberry rhubarb came in second at 16 percent. Apple and strawberry rhubarb were followed in order by pumpkin (14 percent), cherry (11 percent), and blueberry (8 percent). Popular also-rans included pecan, peach, and key lime.

We don’t have beef with pie, whether it’s an American standard like apple pie or something a little strange like strawberry rhubarb.

But...

A Twenty Year Fairytale with Fairytale Brownies!

I never thought I'd still be here, but twenty years later here I am still working at Fairytale Brownies, and what a Fairytale it's been!

This "Fairytale Journey" (as I call it) began when I answered a want ad in the Arizona State University school paper.  At the time I was hired to sell our delicious gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies at street fairs, festivals and farmer's markets across the Valley.  I also helped out wherever I was needed - in a small entrepreneurial start-up, everyone does everything.  Some days that meant cracking eggs to help Mike (Eileen's husband and our first baker) and Ron (neighborhood friend, baker, band member) in the kitchen, delivering brownies to grocery stores, working our tiny retail shop, taking orders over the phone. . . the list goes on and on!  As the word got out and we attended more events, people began asking if we would ship Fairytale Brownies to family and friends, so we did, and that's how the mail order aspect of the business came to be.  Now...

Order Mint Chocolate Brownies for Mint Chocolate Day!

February 19th is Chocolate Mint Day. It is time to enjoy and celebrate the genius idea of combining these two delicious flavors. What better way to do this than indulging in a Mint Chocolate treat from Fairytale Brownies. We have both a Mint Chocolate Brownie and a Mint Chocolate Cookie.
 
Our Mint Chocolate Brownie is probably considered the best brownie for mint lovers. Cool mint is hand-drizzled over rich chocolate. Yum! If you are more of a cookie person than try the Mint Chocolate Cookie. Cocoa powder & pure peppermint oil create the perfect blend of richness & cool, mint bursts.
 
I know one of my favorite ways to enjoy mint chocolate is with an ice cream or, even better, an ice-cream shake. Co-founders Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz give you a great recipe and instructional video on how to make Fairytale Mint Chocolate Milkshakes.
 
Make sure to visit brownies.com and order these two delicious mint treats from the best brownie company. I recommend ordering the Bulk Mint Chocolate...

Hello... delicious much?! What a fantastic surprise your loved one will experience when you present them with this unique treat! They are sure to love this sweet surprise.

Win Fairytale fudge brownies with clever little Valentine poem

When I was a child, I remember hearing my aunt recite this silly poem to my uncle on Valentine's Day:

There are tulips in the garden,

There are tulips in the park.

But the two lips I like best are your two lips in the dark.

They laughed and then gave each other a smooch.

Those aren't lines from Shakespeare, but I love that little poem and the memory it brings.

Because I'm always thinking, "chocolate," I have another little poem for Fairytale's fudge brownie lovers:

Violets are purple and roses are red,

Flowers are beautiful, but send fudge brownies instead.

Yes. That one is silly as well. I know our Fairytale Brownies fans can write much better lines than mine! Dazzle me with your poetry skills and you could win a gourmet brownie gift. I'll send the winner a Fairytale Dozen.  Respond wherever this blog is posted.

I will monitor the responses, and then a few of us will choose our favorite one on Friday.
