Speaking of fatherly advice, BuzzSugar compiled a great list of quotes from movie dads – including George Banks of Father of the Bride, Mac MacGuff of Juno, and Jim Baker of Sixteen Candles. You can see the full list here, but these are three of our favorites:

  • "I'm only brave when I have to be, Simba. Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble." ~ Mufasa, the Lion King
  • "A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man." ~ Vito Corleone, The Godfather
  • You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view . . . Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." ~ Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

Cookies or coffee? Thanks to a new summer promotional drink by Starbucks, you won’t have to choose—if you’re willing to fly to Japan, that is. espresso brownie gift

If not, you may just have to order cookies or espresso-flavored brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies.

According to Rocket News 24, Starbucks Japan will soon release the Crunchy Cookie Frappuccino. The specialty beverage will be available in Japanese Starbucks stores until August 31.

As described by Rocket News 24, “With a vanilla base, chocolate chunk cookie clusters, and even almonds, it sounds like it’ll be another tempting option on their menu … with an entire cookie crumbled up and blended in!

At Fairytale Brownies, we may not be able to match the Crunchy Cookie Frappuccino. But we do know a thing or two about cookies. And coffee.

Rich, Callebuat Belgian chocolate vs. Spicy Mexican Chocolate

Having traveled to Los Cabos, Mexico recently, I noticed many delicious confections made with Mexican chocolate that I was dying to try. This got me wondering what exactly Mexican chocolate was and how did it differ from the rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate that Fairytale Brownies uses to bake our decadent treats. Here's what I found:

Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a grainy, less smooth chocolate. It is frequently bought in disks, though you can also purchase the chocolate in bar and syrup form. The traditional uses for Mexican chocolate are hot drinks such as Atole (served with tamales), Champurrado (served as a dessert with churros or a sweet bread called Pan Dulce) and Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Mexican Chocolate

Other popular uses for Mexican chocolate are in Tejate (a cold drink made of dark chocolate, corn masa, cocoa flowers, then marinated and frothed), and Mole (a sauce filled with spices, tomato and...

Celebrate with chocolate chip cookie baskets and brownie gifts

The first line of the Wikipedia entry for chocolate chips keeps it awfully simple. “Chocolate chips,” the entry states, “are small chunks of chocolate.” chocolate chip brownie gift

Yup. That about sums it up. And that’s fine by us, because we don’t need much more reason to celebrate chocolate—especially on May 15 (aka National Chocolate Chip Day).

Chocolate chips have myriad uses from pancakes to hot chocolate and ice cream to trail mix. Of course, our favorite uses for chocolate chips are in our Chocolate Chip Brownie gifts and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie baskets.

Did you ever consider the many types of chips spawned by Ruth Graves Wakefield’s 1937 invention?

According to Wikipedia, Ruth’s semisweet chocolate chips eventually evolved to include bittersweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, mint chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and white and dark swirled chocolate chips.

Whew!

Like that original Wikipedia entry, we like to keep it simple at...

Cinnamon Crumb Blondie Bars

My favorite gourmet treat that Fairytale Brownies bakes is the Cinnamon Crumb Blondie Bar. I am absolutely in love with it. I was reminded of my love for this tasty treat when I walked into work today and the fragrant aroma of spicy cinnamon mixed with crunchy walnuts wafted through the air. Lucky for me, today was my day for quality assurance. You see, in addition to my job duties as Web Designer and Marketer, I am also on the Quality Assurance Team. This means that once a week, I visit the baking department and taste what delicious treats they've baked that day. I score the product on Appearance, Taste, Texture, Smell, Aroma, and an overall Pass/Hold score. This is a very formal process that involves forms, score sheets, etc. But all of that formality aside, I can't wait to sink my teeth into freshly baked brownies, moist and chewy cookies and especially my favorite, sweet and buttery bars once a week. It's my treat for having the self-control to not indulge every day. Working at...
