Brownie gifts and cookie baskets with toffee

If you didn’t get enough sweets during the holidays, you’re in luck! That’s because January 8 is National Toffee Day and, believe us, we’ve got your toffee cravings covered. We deliver brownie gifts and cookie baskets with toffee taking center stage.

We’ll tell you more about our toffee desserts in a bit. First, here are a few facts about toffee, courtesy of Wikipedia.

  • Toffee is made by caramelizing sugar or molasses along with butter and (sometimes) flour. The mixture is heated until its temperature exceeds 300 degrees!
  • The Oxford English Dictionary traces the word “toffee” as far back as 1825. Apparently, it was used first as a variation of taffy. Makes sense to us!
  • The two most popular toffees in the U.S. are honeycomb toffee and English toffee. Interestingly, our English toffee is far different from the toffee enjoyed in England itself.

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!

Large Marshmallows
Chocolate Bar- I used Hershey
A metal wire or stick for roasting
 
Directions:
Start by laying your ingredients out at the...

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...

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...
