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!

Show Team Spirit with Fudgy Chocolate Brownie Gifts

It's time for the greatest season of the year… football season! I know that with my family it means getting together with friends to cheer, jeer, and of course… eat! 
 
Sweeten up your next game day with fudgy chocolate brownies from Fairytale Brownies. Visit brownies.com and order a brownie delivery to be sent right to your door. Each treat is individually wrapped for freshness and easy for your guests to take home with them after, if there are any left.
 
You can also send friends and family a photo gift, with you showing off your team spirit! I recommend a photo tin gift, so even after the gourmet brownies are gone, you still have a unique keepsake.
 
Happy Football Season everyone! Go Cardinals!

Brownie Care Package for Any Occasion!

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.

Homemade Ice Cream Mixed with Gourmet Brownies!

I received an ice cream maker a few years ago as a gift and finally decided to make some home made ice cream! With temperatures reaching 118 degrees in Phoenix this weekend, I thought a cool treat would be just the ticket. Since I'd never made ice cream before, I thought I'd try vanilla. It turned out to be my boyfriend who came up with the truly inspired idea. He said I should make vanilla with bites of Fairytale Gourmet Brownies throughout! The idea was too tempting not to try!
 
I cut two Fairytale Peanut Butter Brownies into pieces and added them to the ice cream machine when the ice cream was nearly ready. The result was delicious! I served my boyfriend his with a Fairytale Peanut Butter Cookie. He would not stop raving about the dessert! I am excited to serve this amazing treat to others and may even bring it to my Fourth of July Barbecue! 
 
There are many ways to enjoy our belgian chocolate brownies. Click here for recipes, and visit brownies.com to order your brownie delivery...

National Dairy Month: Dip Gourmet Cookies in milk

Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? According to the International Dairy Foods Association, it started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It now celebrates the contributions the dairy industry has made to the world. Dairy products like milk contain essential nutrients that help manage weight and reduce risk of high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and certain cancers. www.idfa.org
 
I was never a big milk drinker, but there is one sure way to get me to drink more milk, pairing it with a gourmet cookie from Fairytale Brownies.

Thank friends, family, teachers, and mentors with gourmet brownies!

It is graduation time and many people are sending delicious gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies to congratulate all the grads out there. I am graduating in a week myself, with a Bachelor's Degree in graphic design! In the midst of all the celebrating I think it is important to remember those who have supported and helped me reach my academic and career goals. 

What better way to say thank you to my friends, family, teachers, and mentors than with a thank you gift from Fairytale Brownies! I know they are going to really appreciate the gesture. Not only is the presentation elegant with beautifully crafted packaging, but wait until they try the fudgy brownies, cookies, and bars! You can choose from a number of different sizes and varieties. I suggest the Thank You 8 sprite favor, especially for teachers, or the Thank You Morsel 24 for those extra special people, like parents! 

So graduates, while you're celebrating, don't forget those who have helped you along the way! Thank you...
