Come play with Fairytale Brownies and help raise funds to build a playground

We are getting ready for our Playdate/Open House on Thursday and we can't wait for our Fairytale Friends to join us.

This year's theme for the event focuses on PLAY because we are building a playground with our national nonprofit KaBOOM! for Arizona Autism Charter School in Phoenix.

The biggest draw for our fans is our $1 "imperfect" brownies, cookies and bars. The treats taste delicious, they just don't meet Fairytale's standards for looking perfect. All proceeds from the $1 sale will go the playground which will be built in March 2017. Please be aware that availability of every flavor is not guaranteed with these "imperfect" treats.

Because the $1 treats are such a hit, there usually is a wait to purchase them. But don't worry, you will have options to make the time go by. Throw some bean bags through the Brownie Guy's belly; hula hoop to some tunes; or throw whiffle balls into a bucket to win fudgy brownies.

Thursday's event begins at 3 p.m. The first 100 people attending will receive...

Fairytale Brownies Celebrates 24 Years of Spreading Sweet Joy

Fairytale Brownies Co-founders David Kravetz and Eileen Spitalny, friends since kindergarten, began their business in 1992 armed with an old family brownie recipe and the desire to create a brand, be their own bosses and do something fun. They wanted to be the Ben & Jerry's of brownies. So, with no baking skills, but an awesome brownie recipe, they did it! They learned and listened, and now Fairytale bakes 7 million brownies a year, and is still growing. Fairytale Brownies celebrates 24 years in business this week, and I have to say - I'm so glad that David and Eileen learned how to bake brownies and chose to share them with the world.

And boy, have they've been sharing! From our humble beginnings and samplings at farmer's markets and local street festivals, to our presentations at the Cannes Film Festival, Fairytale Brownies has become a favorite mail order gift among brownie lovers, dessert lovers and chocolate lovers alike. Although many people know about our gourmet treats, our work...

Show good manners! Value their referrals with gourmet food gifts they'll love

Our Moms taught us the importance of the thank-you note - heartfelt gratitude for kindness shown. It's just good manners.

gourmet brownies, fudge browniesWhen it comes to business, thank-you notes are a must - especially when a customer or client refers your business. They are paying you the ultimate compliment. They value your service, trust you and your product, and have confidence in your abilities.

Why not express your gratitude for their referral with a little more than just a thank-you note?

I recommend a food gift like gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies. Think about it. You can't go wrong with a food gift because everyone eats! If you discover your recipient doesn't care for fudge brownies, send chewy cookies or buttery bars instead.

Referrals are strong business builders. When a client or customer tells their friend about your awesome service or product, they not only are advertising for you, they're building your reputation as a trusted and valued business.

The clients don't have to say a word about your...

Are gourmet cookies a safer pick than cookie dough shots?

gourmet cookieCookie dough is all the rage these days. The Roasting Plant coffee shop in downtown Detroit has hopped on the bandwagon with gourmet cookie dough shots.

As described in an article in the Detroit Free Press, “The uncooked dough balls, studded with chunks of dark chocolate, are sold in shot-glass-sized plastic cups in a cooler in front of the shop's cash registers.”

Small shots, the equivalent of half a cookie, are $1.49. Large shots, equal to a whole cookie, cost $2.49.

As we posted earlier this year, the USDA warned consumers on Twitter: “Don’t eat the raw dough! It contains uncooked eggs that may contain Salmonella bacteria.” But don’t worry about these cookie dough shots being a threat to your health.

Shop manager Kristen Wing has taken this into consideration, as she explained to the Detroit Free Press. “The cookie dough is the same as the cookies, except it's made with pasteurized eggs so it won't make you sick,” Wing said.

Given that, stop by the Roasting Plant and grab a gourmet...

Perfect brownie gifts as seen on TV? Here’s a better choice.

perfect brownie giftYou may remember seeing TV ads for the Perfect Brownie Pan. In fact, if you love perfect brownie gifts as much as we do, you may even have dialed the 800-number right then and there. And, if you did, the Federal Trade Commission has your back.

That’s right. The FTC has a bone to pick with Allstar Marketing Group, the marketer behind Perfect Brownie Pans and other as-seen-on-TV products like the Snuggie and Magic Mesh door covers.

Last month, according to an article in Consumerist, AMG agreed to pay $7.5 million to the FTC and $500,000 to the New York Attorney General’s Office. The agreement came after AMG allegedly duped buyers with buy-one-get-one free offers that included oversized shipping and handling fees.

So, yeah, you might think twice about that particular purchase. However, if you’re still on the lookout for the perfect brownie gift, Fairytale Brownies has you covered.

Just in time for the season, we have a delicious lineup of mouthwatering brownies, cookies, and bars wrapped in...

In college football, the best cookies land the best players

For diehard college football fans, the season doesn’t end with the bowl games. It extends into February.caramel pecan cookie gifts

That’s when high school seniors announce which university they’ll play football for in the fall. Recruiting is a big business in college football – and it trickles all the way down into the world of desserts.

ESPN’s Jeremy Crabtree recently reported on a trend of cookie gifts playing a vital role in the wooing of high school football players.

"Kids get fired up by the funniest things," Florida Atlantic University assistant coach Nick Caley told ESPN. "I know we've stepped up our cookie game here at FAU. We now have cookie cakes for the kids that are the thickness of a brownie."

The tactic doesn’t always pay off. We wrote in September about a cookie gift controversy at the University of South Carolina, which reported seven NCAA rules infractions including one related to “impermissible iced decorations on a cookie cake” given to high school recruits.

We think the tactic is more likely to pay...

Gourmet brownies the inventor of peanut butter would love

peanut butter cookie giftThirty-five years after he was born on this day in 1849, Marcellus Gilmore Edson changed life as we know it. (Or, at least as I know it, since I’m somewhat addicted to his invention.)

According to Wikipedia, the Canadian pharmacist became the first person to patent peanut butter in 1884. In his patent application, he described peanut butter as having “a consistency like that of butter, lard, or ointment” and requiring peanuts to be milled to “a fluid or semi-fluid state.”

If that sounds less than appetizing, our peanut butter-flavored gourmet brownies and cookie gifts may do the trick for you.

Our Peanut Butter Cookie combines natural peanut butter and pure cane sugar to create a creamy cookie with that classic peanut butter taste.

Our customer service team lead Ellie Perry is especially fond of the cookie. “The peanut butter cookie is a classic-style cookie,” she said. “Rich peanut butter flavor with just the right amount of crunch on the edge and soft texture in the middle. LOVE IT!”

Gourmet brownies we’d enjoy again and again on Groundhog Day

Well, it's Groundhog Day... again…espresso nib gourmet brownie

Bill Murray’s 1993 comedy hit Groundhog Day is as key to my knowledge of the holiday as Punxsutawney Phil. As you may recall, Murray’s character was doomed to repeat Groundhog Day over and over until he managed to successfully woo costar Andie MacDowell.

Over the last couple years, we’ve asked our teammates which of our gourmet brownie and cookie gifts is their favorite. These are the treats they’d enjoy again and again … just in case Groundhog Day repeats.

“My favorites have got to be the Toffee Crunch Brownie. I love the crunchiness of the toffee when it comes straight out of the refrigerator. Also, the Fairytale Bars are just so good. I can’t resist the Cheesecake Swirl Bar. Our sweet and buttery bars can't be beat.” ~ Jasmin Santiago, retail sales

“My favorite brownie is definitely the Raspberry Swirl Brownie. The raspberry flavor just melts in your mouth. Oh, and the Peanut Butter Cookie is absolutely amazing.” ~ Donna Baker, accounting

No 3D printer? Order cookies by mail from us!

You may not have seen one yet, but 3D printers are the next big thing.cookie gifts

What are they? 3D printers create real-life versions of digital files by layering threads of plastic on top of one another. NASA recently emailed a file of a wrench to the International Space Station and the astronauts aboard “printed” it to tighten a bolt. How cool is that?!?

Not all use cases for a 3D printer are as glamorous. But they sure can be tasty.

Cookie Caster is a new website where you can design a custom cookie cutter and print it on your in-home 3D printer. Now that would make for some unique cookie gifts!

What, you don’t have your own 3D printer yet? Well, don’t worry about that. As long as you don’t mind your cookies being round, you can order cookies by mail from Fairytale Brownies.

Baked with premium, all-natural ingredients, our gourmet cookie gifts are just like homemade. And they come in six mouth-watering flavors: Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate, Double Chocolate, Caramel Pecan, Coconut Walnut, and Toffee...

Pecan brownie gifts that are fit for a King

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is coming January 19. There’s increased interest in the man behind the holiday this year thanks to the acclaimed new film Selma.pecan brownie gift

Selma dramatizes the protest marches from Selma, Ala., to Montgomery, Ala., that led to the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The movie is a Golden Globe nominee for best motion picture, best actor, and best director.

We did a little research and found that King’s favorite food was pecan pie. That’s not surprising. My family’s from the south too and we love pecan pie.

At Fairytale Brownies, we feature pecans in three of our gourmet cookie and brownie gifts.

Our Pecan Brownie gifts burst with handfuls of fresh, crunchy pecan halves. They’re available as full-size Fairytale Brownies or snack-size Fairytale Sprites.

Topped by a layer of chopped pecans, our Pecan Blondie Bars deliver the perfect blend of moist cake and satisfying crunch.

And our Caramel Pecan Cookies combine organic vanilla extract, buttery caramel, and premium pecans to pair chewy and...

Sweet Treats Are a Must at Every Wedding Reception

There's something about a wedding. Whether an extravagant affair or a simple civil ceremony, the romance of it all warms my heart.

gourmet browniesAlthough the celebration after the vows also can be extravagant or simple, one fact remains:. Something sweet ALWAYS is served. Cake, cupcakes, pie, candy, cookies, fudge brownies - as the official dessert or a gift favor takeaway, a sweet treat is required.

A good friend of mine in the Midwest was married this past summer.

gourmet brownies

Although I couldn't make it to her bridal shower, I sent her a gift and some fudge brownies with her engagement photo on it to use as a keepsake box.

After receiving the gift, she remembered that our bite-sized Magic Morsels are wrapped in purple foil - the color of her bridesmaids' dresses! The Morsels would be a perfect fit as table favors for her reception.

She ordered them in bulk in a variety of flavors.

The Magic Morsels gourmet brownies were such a hit, that several people approached the mother of the bride with news that they spotted...

Is the Dunkin’ Buddy the best cookie gift ever?

It’s rare, but it happens. Some transcendent innovations are just destined to change life as we know it. The wheel. The cotton gin. Sliced bread. You get it.

And, now, we can add the Dunkin’ Buddy to that short list … at least among those who believe that the best cookies are dunked cookies.

Gizmodo summed it up perfectly: “The Dunkin' Buddy is a simple tool that lets you completely submerge a couple of cookies in milk, without soaking your fingers. Using a magnet, it connects a cookie-holding tray to a handle on the outside of the glass, so your hands stay dry while you dunk.”

Brilliant!

According to their website, the Dunkin’ Buddy team is still working out the logistics of manufacturing for their patent-pending innovation. That’s too bad, because we think it’d be the perfect holiday pairing with cookie gifts from Fairytale Brownies.

In fact, with Cyber Monday upon us, we could see folks pairing the Dunkin’ Buddy with cookie gifts in Christmas bands or Holiday bands this year.

So, here’s a...
