Brownie Blogging by Colleen

Hi, my name is Colleen Flynn. I am a Graphic Designer with the Catalog and Web Team at Fairytale Brownies. My duties mainly include working on marketing materials for both web and print. I am still fairly new to the Brownie Team, so read my blog as I work on new, fun projects and discover great gifting ideas!

I love all things crafty and creative, so you will find me blogging alot about ways to get creative with Fairytale Brownies, Cookies, & Bars! I also love finding excuses to celebrate, so my blogs will center around holidays: big and small, nationally recognized and obscure. I will also be giving you and inside look at some of the exciting things I get to do as a designer with Fairytale Brownies, such as photo shoots and catalog printing!

Please feel free to contact me at colleen@brownies.com. I would love to hear your questions, feedback, and random thoughts!

Magic Morsels: Best Brownie for Easter Egg Hunts

It is almost Easter and many people will be taking part in or orchestrating an Easter Egg Hunt! As a kid, I always found this to be so much fun, and honestly there should be no reason why adults can’t have fun doing it too. So rather than filling the eggs with candy, fill them with something everyone can enjoy! Fairytale Brownies Magic Morsels are the best brownie size for fitting in those plastic eggs. Plus, they are individually wrapped, so they will stay pure and fresh! People go crazy for these little bites of brownie bliss! You may see everyone’s motivation to find those eggs increase and could have a real fun and friendly competition on your hands!

For an Easter egg hunt, or just for filling Easter baskets, I recommend forgoing the packaging and save by buying bulk. Choose from eight fudgy flavors of bite-size Magic Morsels in increments of three dozen. Visit brownies.com and order brownies today. Easter will be that much sweeter!

Gourmet Gifts Make Work Fun!

Not only is April 1st April Fool’s Day, but it's also International Have Fun at Work Day. I think it may be because people have fun fooling their coworkers that day, but none the less, it is a day dedicated to enjoying work.  We got started a little bit early on this holiday here at Fairytale Brownies. On March 26, we had our companywide Spring Fling Event!   

At Fairytale Brownies, it is important that we enjoy what we do. We send brownies and other treats worldwide, and bring smiles to people’s faces. How could we not have fun doing that?!  But as an extra treat for our team, we enjoyed a lunch from the Grilled Cheese Truck, and we did some group painting with the Social Canvas!

Even if your work doesn’t do anything extra special for International Have Fun at Work Day, you can still make it fun. Surprise coworkers with some gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies! You will be amazed at how something as small as a brownie can make a big impact. There is just something special about...

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.

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...

Buy Brownies Online and Celebrate National Peanut Butter Day

January 24 is National Peanut Butter Day! I personally think peanut butter is one of the greatest creations know to man. Filling, chalk full of protein, in a yummy, gooey spread: Who doesn't like Peanut Butter? Plus it goes with almost anything. What is childhood without those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? I also love putting it on fruit like apples, and vegetables like celery. Yum! 
 
But of course, we can't forget peanut butter desserts! Here at Fairytale Brownies we bake some pretty amazing peanut butter treats. Velvety peanut butter and smooth dark chocolate compliment each other in our Peanut Butter Brownie. We also make a delicious Peanut Butter Cookie, baked with natural peanut butter and pure sugar cane, giving this cookie that classic peanut butter taste.
