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,...

Cookie baskets for the obsessed Cookie Clicker in your life

When we see cookies and obsession in the same sentence, we think the writer is talking about our cookie baskets. In one recent article, however, the author wasn’t even talking about real cookies.

Brian Crecente recently wrote about the “obsessive, increasingly large fan following” for the game Cookie Clicker on the gaming website Polygon. Here’s his brief overview of Cookie Clicker.

“Players have to click on a cookie to produce a cookie. Those cookies can, in turn, be used to increase cookie production through the purchase of virtual grandmas, farms, time machines and the like. There is no goal in the game beyond producing cookies at an ever increasing rate. My game, for instance, currently produces a smidge more than 28 billion cookies a second.” (You can read his full story here.)

Now, we understand a cookie obsession. But 28 billion cookies per second? Yikes!

Besides, those cookies aren’t even real! You may be better off with our Cookie Extravaganza which includes 72 cookies in your...

Gourmet Cookie S'mores

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. Of course here in Arizona, it didn't get below freezing, but I did appreciate that camp fire. A great past time around the fire is roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. Yum! This time, however, I decided to give it a Fairytale Brownies twist by making Peanut Butter Cookie S'mores. It was simple, fun, and delicious! Follow this recipe and instructions to make your own gourmet cookie s'mores!
 
You will need:
Fairytale Brownies' Peanut Butter Cookies- Two for each s'more you would like to make. Simply visit our website at brownies.com and order yourself a cookie delivery! You can buy in bulk and save, or order a cookie gift. I recommend the Peanut Butter Cookies, but try experimenting with other flavors as well!
Large Marshmallows
Chocolate Bar- I used Hershey
A metal wire or stick for roasting
 
Directions:
Start by laying your ingredients out at the...

Fear the fork or fear the tree; but tailgate with Fairytale Brownies

It's a big weekend for both college football fans and art festival fans in Arizona. Arizona State University will play Stanford on Saturday to see which team will go to the 100th Rose Bowl, and thousands will attend the 45th Annual Tempe Festival of the Arts along Mill Avenue.

gourmet browniesFairytale Brownies is partial to both events for several reasons.

1. Co-founders Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz used to sell gourmet brownies at street fairs and festivals - specifically at the Tempe Festival of the Arts - when they first began the Fairytale Brownies business 21 years ago.

2. David Kravetz graduated from Stanford University.

3. Many Fairytale Brownies team members (several of us in the Marketing Department and our Operations Team Leader) graduated from Arizona State University.

4. Eileen Spitalny is a member of the Creative Impact Board for the ASU Art Museum.

5. Fairytale Brownies was a finalist for the ASU Spirit of Enterprise Award.

6. Our Senior Web Designer Hilary Lee teaches at ASU.

holiday brownie and cookie giftsThe holiday season is a season for treats. One easy way to deliver is to order fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookies from Fairytale Brownies. Baking treats yourself is another option.

The Associated Press compiled a list of 12 fruit-inspired cookie recipes perfect for the holiday season. You can see the recipes at MassLive.com of Western Massachusetts.

The list includes honeyed apricot tassies, cherry lime brownies, oatmeal blues drop cookies, strawberry pistachio icebox cookies, no-bake cranberry coconut bites, mango marshmallow bars, apple-orange spice drops, peanut butter and jelly cookies, ice cream cone caramel date bars, sweet-and-salty kitchen sink cookies, brown butter fig thumbprint cookies, and tropical almond macaroons.

We’re particularly interested in the oatmeal blues drop cookie, which the Associated Press described as:

“Everyone loves a basic oatmeal cookie. But these are no ordinary oatmeal cookies. In addition to studding them with chewy, sweet dried blueberries,...

Gourmet brownies for office meetings, family parties, or the USC football team

large gourmet brownie gift basketThe University of Southern California football team has been on a roll since firing Lane Kiffin and promoting Ed Orgeron to head coach.

According to the New York Times, one of Orgeron’s first decisions was to reinstate dessert at team meals. To quote the Times: "His reasoning: If you give a lineman a cookie, he’ll want to block for you.”

That seems like sound logic to us!

It’s unlikely that you have a locker room full of hungry college students to feed. But you may need to order brownies – lots of brownies! – for an office meeting or family party. Here are two selections from our crowd pleasers menu for big gatherings.

Weighing in at over 18 pounds, Extravaganza Delights is the ultimate gourmet brownie sampler! It includes an assortment of 12 Fairytale Brownies, 60 Fairytale Sprites, 18 Magic Morsels, 48 Fairytale Cookies and 9 Fairytale Bars.

While not quite as large as the Extravaganza Delights, our Morsel Extravaganza offers a wealth of variety in small samples. The gift includes a...

Fairytale Brownies Holiday Season Blast From the Past!

As we approach the month of December and the upcoming holidays, I find myself reminiscing about the one season we actually ran out of brownies, believe it or not!!!

It was 1997 and we were a few years into the business when we had an unexpected rush on brownies for the holidays, so mid-December we actually ran out of some of our brownie flavors.  We were unable to bake anymore of the delectable Belgian chocolate brownies because our very tiny commercial kitchen had been transformed into a shipping department.  We only had a limited selection of brownie flavors available, so we made due with what we had. . . . Needless to say, we've never forgotten "the season we ran out of brownies".  We've definitely come a long way since then and now occupy a large production facility with plenty of space for baking and shipping, so we plan to never have that problem again!

If you've been a fan of Fairytale Brownies for a while you know that we no longer just carry our famous brownies, but over the...

Happy "Thanksgivukkah!" A special mashup of Holidays!

This year, American Jews will celebrate something that has never happened before . . . and will never happen again. The first day of Hanukkah 2013 starts at sunset on Wednesday November 27th the night before Thanksgiving, Thursday November 28th.

Historically, Thanksgiving is the 4th Thursday in November, meaning the latest it can be is November 28th. As it turns out, November 28th is the earliest Hanukkah can be. 

According to this source, The Jewish calendar repeats on a 19-year cycle, and Thanksgiving repeats on a 7-year cycle, which you'd expect these two holidays to coincide every 133 years (19x7). So, the last time this would have happened would have been in 1861. However, Thanksgiving wasn't established until 1863. Furthermore, moving forward, the Jewish calendar is slowly getting out of sync with the solar calendar (there's a long technical explanation for this which I'll spare you), so this colliding of holiday's will never happen again!

However you're celebrating this historic...
