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.

One of my favorite things about winter is cozying up next to a warm fire! This year I was a little more adventurous and went winter camping.

Add apples to Cinnamon Crumb Blondie for a delicious fall treat

Fairytale's new Cinnamon Crumb Blondie is a hit with most everyone who tries one.

food giftBecause the brown sugar treat reminds me of apple pie without the apples, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create an apple "something" with my new favorite blondie. I cut up several Cinnamon Crumb Blondie bars and mixed them with apple pie fililng, cinnamon and some caramel sauce.

I popped the mixture into a 350-degree oven and waited for the kitchen to smell "appley."

I scooped some piping hot Apple Cinnamon Crumb Blondie mixture and placed it in a bowl; then topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I must say, it was heavenly. So much so, that the next day when I went to serve myself another helping, I found an empty serving dish in the sink. Apparently other family members enjoyed the new blondie treat as well and ate it all!

Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the creation. You'll just have to trust me when I say that adding apples, more cinnamon and a little bit of caramel sauce will...

Remembering my first Fairytale Brownie on Peanut Butter Fudge Day

Today, on Peanut Butter Fudge Day, I remember my first Fairytale Brownie. Even though it was eight years ago, I remember the delicious experience because it was right after my first interview at the Fairytale Brownies bakery.

fudge browniesI didn't eat breakfast before the job interview, so as I eyed the refrigerated display of 12 flavors of fudge brownies, my stomach roared a loud growl of hunger...

I always seem to make the best first impressions!

I quickly chose the Peanut Butter fudge brownie. I figured if I spent any more time thinking about the other available flavors, who knew what else my stomach would decide to "say."

When I returned to my car and finally unwrapped the brownie, I tasted pure enchantment. I couldn't believe such chocolaty goodness could be found in a packaged brownie. I was hooked and couldn't wait to try the other 11 flavors.

Of course, after eight years I've tried all of the flavors many times and my favorites have changed as well. But because it was my first, the Peanut Butter...

Fudgy brownie-gourmet cookie combo turns heads in Pennsylvania

72 gourmet cookiesIf you were in Pennsylvania this summer, you may have stopped by the Gold Medal Flour Scratch Bakers Cookie Challenge at the Great Allentown Fair. Well, we would have anyway!

If we love anything as much as fudgy chocolate brownies, it’s gourmet cookies – whether they’re homemade or baked by hand here at Fairytale Brownies.

The contest featured 19 original cookie creations judged on appearance, taste, and texture. Deb Gruber of Slatington, Penn., won the top $100 prize with a Hawaiian cookie filled with whipped topping and covered with coconut, chopped nuts, and pineapple.

Our interest was piqued by Sara Kurtz of Emmaus, Penn., and her Chocolate Chip Nutella Bar. The treat was described by Kelly Huth of the Express-Times of Pennsylvania:

“There was a fudgy brownie-cookie mash-up with walnuts and fudge and caramel and every other possible bad-for-you-thing they could throw in a cookie. Holy mackerel, that was good. I gave that one a full score.”

We would’ve given it a full score too! It...
