Gourmet Cookie S'mores

One of my favorite things about winter is cozying up next to a warm fire! This year I was a little more adventurous and went winter camping. Of course here in Arizona, it didn't get below freezing, but I did appreciate that camp fire. A great past time around the fire is roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. Yum! This time, however, I decided to give it a Fairytale Brownies twist by making Peanut Butter Cookie S'mores. It was simple, fun, and delicious! Follow this recipe and instructions to make your own gourmet cookie s'mores!

Gourmet brownies for office meetings, family parties, or the USC football team

large gourmet brownie gift basketThe University of Southern California football team has been on a roll since firing Lane Kiffin and promoting Ed Orgeron to head coach.

According to the New York Times, one of Orgeron’s first decisions was to reinstate dessert at team meals. To quote the Times: "His reasoning: If you give a lineman a cookie, he’ll want to block for you.”

That seems like sound logic to us!

It’s unlikely that you have a locker room full of hungry college students to feed. But you may need to order brownies – lots of brownies! – for an office meeting or family party. Here are two selections from our crowd pleasers menu for big gatherings.

Weighing in at over 18 pounds, Extravaganza Delights is the ultimate gourmet brownie sampler! It includes an assortment of 12 Fairytale Brownies, 60 Fairytale Sprites, 18 Magic Morsels, 48 Fairytale Cookies and 9 Fairytale Bars.

Add apples to Cinnamon Crumb Blondie for a delicious fall treat

Fairytale's new Cinnamon Crumb Blondie is a hit with most everyone who tries one.

food giftBecause 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...

Fairytale Brownies Holiday Season Blast From the Past!

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...

Fudgy brownie-gourmet cookie combo turns heads in Pennsylvania

72 gourmet cookiesIf you were in Pennsylvania this summer, you may have stopped by the Gold Medal Flour Scratch Bakers Cookie Challenge at the Great Allentown Fair. Well, we would have anyway!

If we love anything as much as fudgy chocolate brownies, it’s gourmet cookies – whether they’re homemade or baked by hand here at Fairytale Brownies.

The contest featured 19 original cookie creations judged on appearance, taste, and texture. Deb Gruber of Slatington, Penn., won the top $100 prize with a Hawaiian cookie filled with whipped topping and covered with coconut, chopped nuts, and pineapple.

Our interest was piqued by Sara Kurtz of Emmaus, Penn., and her Chocolate Chip Nutella Bar. The treat was described by Kelly Huth of the Express-Times of Pennsylvania:

“There was a fudgy brownie-cookie mash-up with walnuts and fudge and caramel and every other possible bad-for-you-thing they could throw in a cookie. Holy mackerel, that was good. I gave that one a full score.”

We would’ve given it a full score too! It...

Indulge with Fudgy Chocolate Brownies on National Dessert Day

My favorite meal of the day? Dessert! October 14 is National Dessert Day, so what a perfect time to indulge in fudgy chocolate brownies from Fairytale Brownies. Our brownies, cookies, and bars taste amazing on their own, but when you pair them with other ingredients, you can make some sinfully delicious desserts. 
 
For an easy and quick treat, I like to eat our gourmet brownies with ice cream. A warm fudy chocolate brownie goes amazing with cool creamy vanilla ice cream.

Livin' La Vida Aloha!

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...

Fairytale Brownies & Callebaut Belgian Chocolate

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,...
