Don't stress over gifting this year, focus on the benefits!

We do it for people’s birthdays, when they are sick, around the holidays, and sometimes just because. Gifting is a huge part of our culture and steeped in tradition. With the holidays coming up I am sure many of you have gifting on your mind, and it can get a bit overwhelming. Before we start making our lists and getting caught up in the shopping frenzy, I’d like to take a moment to remind us all of the benefits of gift giving.

Start with this question: Why do you give gifts?

“I like to make someone else feel good,” is a common response. However, the benefits also extend to the giver and the relationship between them and their recipient. When you decide to give a gift to someone, you are thinking about them. You consider their likes and dislikes. The search for the gift itself can be an emotional lift and reinforce your relationship.

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...

  1. brownies There are three myths about the creation of brownies. #1, a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. #2, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And #3 and most popular, a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to service these "flattened" cakes to them. 
  2. The classic brownie consists of only butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs and flour. Unsweetened chocolate is normally used so more sugar is required to balance the bitterness.
  3. Fudgy brownies have minimum...

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

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.
