Gourmet brownies to celebrate 40 years of marriage!

My parents are celebrating their 40thwedding anniversary! They truly are an inspiration to the lovers out there.  They always filled our home with so much love, and my brother and I are lucky to have them as examples in our lives.

My parents always say, “Don’t get us anything!”  But special occasions like this one deserve recognition, so I had to send them some delicious gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies! My mom is a diabetic but thankfully we offer sugar free brownies! I sent them our Happy Anniversary Morsel 36 and opted to choose my own flavors! This is a great feature that allows me to customize the gift based on my parents’ needs and tastes. I made sure half of the delicious bite-size morsels were sugar-free so my mom can enjoy them, and chose non sugar free flavors, like caramel and chocolate chip, so my dad gets what he wants as well.

Delicious gourmet brownies hand-packed and wrapped in an elegant Happy Anniversary Band, delivered right to their door, what a...

Send some fudge brownie love to those you love on Grandparents Day

"Grandparents are a delightful blend of laughter, caring deeds, wonderful stories, and love." - Author Unknown

fudge brownies, grandparents dayIf you're lucky enough to live near your grandparents, let them know how special they are with a visit on Sunday, Grandparents Day. Depending on how active the grandparents are, your day could be as strenuous as listening to music on the living room couch, or playing football in the park.

Even if you don't live close to your grandparents, let them know you're thinking of them by sending a gourmet gift from Fairytale Brownies. What a treat it would be to receive a delicious batch of fudge brownies or a cookie gift from a loved one. Usually it's the Grandma that bakes the dessert!

I'm not a grandparent yet, but many friends and most of my siblings have been granted that honor. I've seen the love they have for their children and it doesn't compare to the love they have for the grandchildren. It's like someone sprinkled fairy dust on them and their "happy place" IS their...

gourmet cookiesIf you’re reading this blog, I’d guess there’s not much you don’t know about cookies. I mean, you’re not just here for the brownie gifts are you? Considering our six flavors of gourmet cookies, I’d certainly hope not!

Well, if you’re in the mood for some fun facts about one of our favorite food gifts, you’re in luck. The folks over at Epicurious recently uncovered five little-known facts about chocolate chip cookies on a tour of the headquarters of Nestlé's Toll House Cookies in Solon, Ohio.

You can read her full article of five fun facts here, or get three of our favorite highlights below.

  1. Ruth Wakefield of Whitman, Mass., baked the first chocolate chip cookie ever in the 1930s when she added pieces of a chocolate bar into her cookie batter. 
  2. Size didn’t matter with the world’s first chocolate chip cookie. It was roughly the size of a quarter. Fortunately, the standard size of chocolate chip cookies has increased a bit over the years.
  3. The chocolate chip cookie is America's most popular cookie...

How cookie gifts make or break football seasons

cookie giftWhen it comes to college football, a cookie gift can make or break your season. No, really!

In the case of the University of Southern California, a cookie can giveth. And, in the case of the University of South Carolina, a cookie can almost taketh away.

Last December, we told you about Southern Cal’s winning streak that coincided with interim head coach Ed Orgeron’s decision to reinstate dessert at team meals. As the New York Times put it, "His reasoning: If you give a lineman a cookie, he’ll want to block for you.”

And just last month, cookie gifts crept into college football again.

According to the Associated Press, South Carolina just reported seven NCAA rules infractions committed by its football team. One violation related to “impermissible iced decorations on a cookie cake” given to high school recruits.

We’ll admit that we have no idea what that means. But it sure sounds delicious!

Fortunately for South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, it doesn’t look like the decision to order cookies will...

Thank your vacation host or hostess with gourmet brownies!

Summer is winding down, and what a summer it has been! Wonderful thing about the world of social media, we get to see all the fun vacations our friends and loved ones took. I hope everyone got some sort of fun adventure in before fall begins. I am super excited to be going to Minnesota in a few days to visit friends and family. 

When I vacation, it usually means someone is kind enough to put me up for a week or two. Yes, it would sometimes be nice to stay in a luxurious hotel, but we can't always afford that. Plus I often vacation specifically to see people I love, so staying with them is always a fun part of it! However, I know it can be challenging to host someone for week, so make sure you thank those who helped you have such a wonderful vacation. 

Send your hosts or hostesses gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies. We have made gifting very simple, just go online to brownies.com and order a brownie delivery! Your recipient will be delighted to receive gourmet brownies,...

New Seasonal Gourmet Brownie Flavor Popular at SAAC Show

Last week we were in Long Beach for the SAAC Show 2014 - an international trade show for distributors of promotional products. This was our second year exhibiting, and I have to say that we enjoy everything about the show - the people, the venue, the location.

This year, we introduced our new Pumpkin Spice Brownie to all SAAC Show attendees. Although the gourmet brownies will not be available for purchase until Sept. 2, we wanted to share our NEW flavor ahead of time for when it debuts. Because the Pumpkin Spice Brownie is seasonal, it will only be available for purchase between Sept. 2 and Dec. 31.

pumpkin, gourmet brownieThe Pumpkin Spice Brownie was a hit with show attendees. Even those who said they don't like pumpkin pie said they liked the brownie because the pumpkin flavor isn't overpowering. Our Pumpkin Spice brownie begins with a rich, Belgian dark chocolate base. Then we take sweet pumpkin puree and blend it with cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger, and swirl it into the brownie...
