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!

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. For those looking for something a little fancier, a brownie trifle dessert really tantalizes the taste buds! Using icing and candies to decorate brownies is also fun and easy way to do dessert, especially with kids!
 
There are countless ways to enjoy our gourmet brownies! Visit our Pinterest recipes page to find more dessert ideas and indulge on National Dessert Day.
 
 
 
Here are some great desserts for Autumn!

Order Gourmet Brownie Gifts and Give the Gift of Play!

On September 27, a colleague and I had the opportunity to represent Fairytale Brownies at the Kaboom! Playground build at Maryvale Preparatory Academy in Phoenix, AZ. Over 250 volunteers came together to build a playground for the elementary school children, all in less than 8 hours!  
 
Co-founders of Fairytale Brownies Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz met on their kindergarten playground and know the importance of play in children's lives. Since partnering with Kaboom! in 2001, Fairytale Brownies and it's customers have partnered to donate over $100,000 to the organization, and Fairytale Brownies has donated thousands of gourmet brownies, cookies and bars to support Kaboom's goal of building a safe place within walking distance of every child in America. 
 
You can help reach that goal when you purchase Belgian Chocolate Brownies from Fairytale Brownies.  Visit brownies.com, shop for your gourmet brownie gifts, and then add your donation for Kaboom! at checkout. At the end of the year,...

Send Grandma and Grandpa a Brownie Delivery

"What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies." -Rudolph Giuliani

September 8 is Grandparents Day. Show your grandparents how much you appreciate their love, by doting on them for a change. Send them a cookie gift or brownie delivery from Fairytale Brownies. We have an assortment of Thank You and Thinking of you Gifts, or really make them smile with one of our custom photo gifts.

Grandparents love pictures of their grandchildren, so send them a gift they will truly treasure. I recommend the Photo Tin Morsel 24. They are sure to love the assortment of bite-size gourmet brownies, and they will have a keepsake they can enjoy even after the treats are all eaten. Visit brownies.com, and order a brownie delivery in time for Grandparents Day!

Our gourmet brownie gifts are really popular during major holidays (Mother's and Father's day, Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine's Day), but any time of year is a good time to send delicious gourmet brownies. We have a great assortment of Thank You and Thinking of You Gifts to remind people that you care about them year round.

So now you have an excuse to send a brownie care package to that book worm you know, or some deserved recognition to the middle children of the world.
