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,...

Unique Thank You Gift Idea from Baby!

Erin, our graphic artist here at Fairytale Brownies recently had a baby, and friends from her husbands work gave them a few baby gifts. As a unique thank you gift idea, she created these custom wraps for our 3" x 3" gourmet brownies. At home on ordinary printer paper, she created this custom thank you graphic with personalized message, and measured them to wrap precisely around the brownie end to end. 

This idea would work for any large group or gathering. Wedding shower favors, baby shower favors, bachelorette party favors, birthday party favors, etc... Whatever message you wanted to say, you could do with this unique idea! The sky is the limit. 

Fairytale Brownies bulk brownies are perfect for this idea. One dozen gourmet, fudgy brownies are delivered at a discounted price because there is no gift packaging involved. Simply order brownies online, create your graphic on the computer, print out - cut - then wrap around the brownies. Very easy! 

If you didn't want to do all the work,...

Brownie gifts and cookie baskets with toffee

If you didn’t get enough sweets during the holidays, you’re in luck! That’s because January 8 is National Toffee Day and, believe us, we’ve got your toffee cravings covered. We deliver brownie gifts and cookie baskets with toffee taking center stage.

We’ll tell you more about our toffee desserts in a bit. First, here are a few facts about toffee, courtesy of Wikipedia.

  • Toffee is made by caramelizing sugar or molasses along with butter and (sometimes) flour. The mixture is heated until its temperature exceeds 300 degrees!
  • The Oxford English Dictionary traces the word “toffee” as far back as 1825. Apparently, it was used first as a variation of taffy. Makes sense to us!
  • The two most popular toffees in the U.S. are honeycomb toffee and English toffee. Interestingly, our English toffee is far different from the toffee enjoyed in England itself.

Brownies Delivered - Worldwide!

We love to hear our customers' feedback after they've eaten or shared a Fairytale fudge brownie, chewy cookie or buttery bar. This message came from Megan S.:

brownies delivered"My mom sent a big box of brownies for me to share with my office at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. We work such long hours that we really need a boost from time to time, and getting mail is the most exciting part of our day (good excitment- there is plenty of bad excitment). We were all SO happy to get these brownies! People can't stop talking about how wonderful they are, and its been very distracting... one of our paralegals threatened to fall asleep at his desk since he ate three in a row and was full and happy and wanted a nap. Thanks for the great brownies, and thanks for making the extra effort to ship them all the way to Afghanistan."

Soon after I asked her if we could print her comment, she replied with another one:

"People keep coming to my desk today to ask me if I have more. (I only have a few left out of my big box, so I...

Woman owns enough jars to have cookies delivered 72 at a time

Eva Fuchs has a minor problem. 72 gourmet cookies

Fuchs, a resident of Indiana’s Franklin County, recently set the record for the world’s largest cookie jar collection with 2,653 jars. Amazingly, every single cookie jar is unique from every other.

Franklin County Commissioner Scott McDonough explained his process for assisting in the official tally.  “They had to count 2,653 cookie jars and convince themselves they were all different. We probably spent two or three hours counting the jars. At the end of the day, it was quite a collection.”

So, what’s the problem?

A headline in the Batesville Herald-Tribune recently asked: What will they put in all those jars? Great questions! And we have an answer. They could start by having gourmet cookies delivered from Fairytale Brownies!

Baked with the same premium, all-natural ingredients as our famous brownies, our moist and chewy Fairytale Cookies taste just like homemade. Plus, our gourmet cookies are available in six delicious flavors: peanut butter, mint chocolate,...
