Potential employers meet ASU engineering students, sample fudge brownies

fudge brownies

For the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure of participating in the Arizona State University Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Career Fair. Twice a year, 2,500 engineering students have the opportunity to meet about 150 future employers from all over the country.

I bring plenty of fudge brownies and gourmet cookies to the fair for the students and visiting corporations. The fair is a great way for the students to learn what types career opportunities are available in either a full-time position or in paid or unpaid internships.

From Fairytale Brownies' viewpoint, the fair is an opportunity to be a part of the community and show attending corporations our gourmet brownie gifts and custom options.

We so enjoy collaborating with the folks at ASU School of Engineering. With each semester, our partnership strengthens and the business grows. Here's to a bright future with ASU!

National Chocolate Fondue Day and fudge brownies - a taste bud sensation

fudge browniesI heard today is National Chocolate Fondue Day and now I'm craving Fairytale Spicy Chili Chocolate Fondue. Ok, so it's only 8 a.m., but this fondue deserves the early morning rave.

Heavy whipping cream  and sweetened condensed milk combine with ancho chili pepper, cinnamon, vanilla and cayenne pepper, butter, sugar and, of course, chocolate chips. Gather some fudge brownies, gourmet cookies and bars, fresh fruit and other treats, and dip until the plate is empty. I promise that your taste buds will be in ecstasy.

There's still time to order brownies from Fairytale for Valentine's Day and serve them with this delicious fondue.

Licking the spoon on this one is a must!

Buy Brownies Online and Celebrate National Peanut Butter Day

January 24 is National Peanut Butter Day! I personally think peanut butter is one of the greatest creations know to man. Filling, chalk full of protein, in a yummy, gooey spread: Who doesn't like Peanut Butter? Plus it goes with almost anything. What is childhood without those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? I also love putting it on fruit like apples, and vegetables like celery. Yum! 
 
But of course, we can't forget peanut butter desserts! Here at Fairytale Brownies we bake some pretty amazing peanut butter treats. Velvety peanut butter and smooth dark chocolate compliment each other in our Peanut Butter Brownie. We also make a delicious Peanut Butter Cookie, baked with natural peanut butter and pure sugar cane, giving this cookie that classic peanut butter taste. 
 
Visit brownies.com and buy brownies online or order a cookie delivery. You can choose from a number of gourmet gifts, or if you get hooked on one flavor, like I often do, you can also buy in bulk and save! We offer...

Children and parents sat on blankets in the grass in front of the bakery and sampled gourmet brownies, chewy cookies and buttery bars.Using the ingredients of a Fairytale brownie, Vail talked about love, kindness, honesty and consideration. She also discussed bullying and making good choices.

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!
