Christmas Ideas for Foodies: Fairytale Brownies

So recently I won something from  I don’t remember what it was for but the reward was a gift box from Fairytale Brownies.   You know, the confectioner made famous by their two appearances on Food Network’s long running hit show Unwrapped.

Co-founders & childhood friends Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz have been baking the right way since 1992.  Their mission with Fairytale Brownies is to make treats with premium, all-natural ingredients that give a luscious blend of refined flavors.  Mission accomplished.

Fairytale Brownies Truffles - 9-PieceI received a 9-Piece Fairytale Truffle box – one full pound of moist, dark chocolate indulgence.  Included in my purple treasure box was a Caramel Truffle, Chocolate Chip Truffle, Original Truffle, Pecan Truffle, Raspberry Swirl Truffle, Toffee Crunch Truffle, Walnut Truffle, White Chocolate Truffle and Espresso Nib Truffle.  Each were simply amazing.  My favorites were the Chocolate Chip Truffle (a great crunch) and the Espresso Nib Truffle (because chocolate is what coffee is supposed to taste like).

This is a great gift for the true chocolate lover in your life.  Sure milk chocolate tastes good but you don’t get a true chocolate experience from milk chocolate.  You get a milk fat and sugar experience.  No, for a true chocolate experience it has to be dark chocolate – that’s where the phenylethylamine is full throttle.  Phenylethylamine is the chemical in chocolate that makes women feel like they are in love (and kills dogs too but that’s a different story).

Now check out those Unwrapped appearances:
