At Fairytale Brownies, we deliver fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookie gifts flavored with delightful caramel.

Employee Appreciation Day is March 7th!

Bosses have a day to celebrate themselves . . . why not employees too?! Did you know that this Friday, March 7, 2014 is National Employee Appreciation Day? If you're serious about employee recognition, you'll want to pay attention to the rest of this post. Employee recognition is one of the most effective and affordable ways to reduce turnover, curb absenteeism, increase productivity and keep employees engaged with their work (source). 

According to the experts, here are a few employee appreciation gift ideas:

  1. Spring for lunch: Breaking bread together is a nice bonding experience for the group. Who wouldn't enjoy taking time off during the workday to do a little team building? Visit a local restaurant, or have lunch catered in. Either way, your employees will love it. 
  2. Starbucks: How about a mid-afternoon Starbucks break where everyone gets their favorite drink? An afternoon caffeine jolt is always welcomed and appreciated.

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...

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...

Potential employers meet ASU engineering students, sample fudge brownies

fudge brownies

For the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure of participating in the Arizona State University Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Career Fair. Twice a year, 2,500 engineering students have the opportunity to meet about 150 future employers from all over the country.

I bring plenty of fudge brownies and gourmet cookies to the fair for the students and visiting corporations. The fair is a great way for the students to learn what types career opportunities are available in either a full-time position or in paid or unpaid internships.

From Fairytale Brownies' viewpoint, the fair is an opportunity to be a part of the community and show attending corporations our gourmet brownie gifts and custom options.

We so enjoy collaborating with the folks at ASU School of Engineering. With each semester, our partnership strengthens and the business grows. Here's to a bright future with ASU!

Cookie deliveries for the troops on Valentine’s Day

The weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day are busy at Fairytale Brownies as we hand pack and ship brownie and cookie deliveries for sweethearts around the country and globe. gift basket for valentines day

Well, we’re not the only ones working hard to deliver the goods on Valentine’s Day.

This year, we offer a special salute to Bomber Girls LRC of Savannah, Georgia. The Bomber Girls spend the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day collecting home-baked cookies to create delicious gift baskets for our troops serving overseas.

The group’s creative call to arms is: “Fire up your ovens to send the troops some Lovin'.”

The tradition started six years ago with 300 dozen cookies finding their ways into the hands and stomachs of men and women serving our country overseas. By 2012, the number of cookie deliveries had skyrocketed to 6,000 dozen!

Baking that many cookies requires a nationwide effort! Debbie Will of Porter County in northwest Indiana contributed dozens of chocolate chip cookies, plus a 2-pound bag of large dog treats,...
