Give out Belgian Chocolate Brownies for Sweetest Day.

I was born in California and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, so when someone mentioned Sweetest Day to me I asked, “What is that?” I never celebrated it growing up, but my Midwestern boyfriend knows all about it. Turns out, it is a holiday mainly celebrated in the Midwest and Northeastern United States. Wait! Another holiday focused around sweets? I can get behind that! (Any excuse to eat Belgian Chocolate Brownies!)  I decided to do a little research on the history of this day.

Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy maker and philanthropist started Sweetest Day to bring happiness to orphans, shut-ins and other underprivileged children. Some of the biggest movie stars of the day, including Theda Bara and Ann Pennington, distributed the candy. Kingston wanted to show that these children had not been forgotten.

Today, it is celebrated among family and friends. So, I have to ask. Is this like another Valentine’s Day? Apparently hearts, reds and pinks are still related to this day, and Hallmark has...

Pumpkin Dip is especially tasty with Fairytale Brownies, Cookies, Bars

open house, gourmet brownies, pumpkin

 

I've been gathering recipes for a variety of dessert dips and recently made this WHIPPED PUMPKIN DIP to serve with our Fairytale Brownies, Cookies and Bars at next week's After Hours Open House.

It's extremely easy to make, and quite tasty. I brought a batch of dip with a variety of gourmet brownies cut into smaller pieces to a party. During the evening, I noticed someone dipping raw vegetables into the pumpkin mixture. She said she was just using the carrot sticks as a serving utensil to eat the dip by itself.

If you like pumpkin and whipped cream, you might do the same thing.

WHIPPED PUMPKIN DIP

Found on Pinterest from Angela G., via The Mighty Mrs.

Serve with gourmet brownies, cookies and bars cut into...

Fairytale Brownies Wedding Gift Favors are a Hit!

So as I've mentioned before, sometimes I'll post customer comments that have been sent to us via our website contact-us form. This really cute comment came in last night and it was too enjoyable not to share! Below is a comment sent to us regarding our brownie gift favors being a hit at her daughters wedding:

"My daughter was trying to decide on favors for her wedding that weren't going to be left behind or stuffed in drawers when people got home. Their theme was kind of fantasy (think Tolkein) and obviously Fairytale Brownies were a great tie-in. Everyone got a dark purple take out food box with a cookie, sprite or bar and two magic morsels, which was a perfect fit! The wedding was Saturday. Then it got a little weird! I came to a table and found seven grown-ups playing "I'll trade you a..." which then extended to the table next to them. At another table, by the time we were coming in for introductions, the boxes were empty with just the wrappers to show for them. . . before dinner! No...

3 Things Your Boss Wants to Know about Gourmet Brownies

gourmet brownies, brownie giftWhen you give your boss Fairytale Brownies for Boss's Day on Thursday, he or she might want to know why you chose gourmet brownies as a gift:

1. Fairytale Brownies are baked with Callebaut brand Belgian dark chocolate, the finest chocolate makers for more than 100 years. Fairytale is a fine brownie baker for 22 years! Bosses love success stories, especially when they're delicious.

2. The definition of "gourmet" as an adjective: involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation. Bosses appreciate high-quality work from their employees, so they more than likely will love high-quality (or gourmet) brownies.

3. Your boss took a chance and hired YOU out of all of the candidates applying for your position. You were the "gourmet" of the group. Recognizing the boss's good taste in hiring practices by giving gourmet brownies is just the right thing to do. Send a brownie gift for Boss's Day.

Fall in Love with Pumpkin Spice Brownies at Fairytale's Anniversary Open House

Twenty-two years ago, David Kravetz and Eileen Spitalny began their entrepreneurial adventure to bake the best gourmet brownies by co-founding the mail order company Fairytale Brownies. Today, their business not only bakes delicious fudge brownies, the duo has added chewy cookies and buttery blondie bars to the menu... all of which rival their delicious gourmet brownies.

For the past several years we've celebrated Fairytale Brownies' anniversary month with an Open House - sharing new packaging and new products, sampling all of our product flavors, and selling our "reject" brownies for $1. All proceeds from the sale of the rejects go to our national nonprofit partner KaBOOM!

Experience the Difference with Fairytale's Brownie Gift Basket

Because our fudge brownies, gourmet cookies and buttery blondie bars are baked with quality ingredients, and our packaging is custom designed, most people react animatedly when they receive a Fairytale Brownies gift. This reaction is all a part of the "Fairytale Experience." The following is a recent recipient's response when a brownie gift was sent to her from Kim Silva, Operations Team Leader:

OMG!

The Brownies!  OMG! 
My first brownie was the “Espresso Nib”. 
Just the right sweetness…
Just the right cake-like melt-in-your-mouth smoothness…
Just the right crunchiness…
UNBELIEVABLE!
I will be saving them in my freezer and doling them out to myself to savor for the next 6 months.  I will remember you and David with each bite!

But the Experience of JOY!  OMG!
You see, the package may have been delivered last night, but I received it this morning when Jasmine went outside.
The pristine packaging – the white box by my front door…
The name, Fairytale Brownies, Did someone want to send me...
