Fairytale Brownie Ice Cream & A Giveaway!!

Well, I mentioned at the close of my last giveaway that my next giveaway was what Fairytales were made of....and that is certainly true. Its none other than Fairytale Brownies. If you have never heard of Fairytale Brownies you are in for a sweet surprise. I have been a fan of Fairytale Brownies for quite sometime. I especially love the story of the Fairytale Brownie Co. It is founded by 2 elementary school friends. The brownie recipe belonged to one of the founders. It was a 50+ year old family brownie recipe using Callebaut Belgian chocolate. Wow, would I ever love to have that recipe!
Most of the time, I believe that packaged goods are not generally as tasty as homebaked goods, but that is not the case with this product. The company that perfects these lovely brownies takes such pride in using natural, fresh ingredients to make their secret recipe, that it is every bit as fabulous as anything you will produce in your own kitchen.  You will love everything about this product. From the beautiful packaging, to the unbelievably rich brownies, to the cute little fairy that graces all the packaging. These delights are quite an indulgence on their own, but you know I had to give you a recipe to go along with this giveaway. And oh....is it a sinful indulgence. Can we say "Hello again, Mr. Treadmill!" But its worth it!
I made a homemade chocolate ice cream, recipe courtesy of Ms. Martha Stewart and add these lovely brownies into the mix at the end of the freezing cycle. Love her or hate her, you have to admit, Martha knows her stuff in the kitchen. I don't believe I've ever made anything from her recipe collection that was not great. This chocolate ice cream, was no exception! Just look at Princess Runwilder...
She thought it was so good, she wanted to share it with her shirt. I'm fairly certain no amount of Oxyclean will get those stains out. Perhaps, I could send it to those cute little fairies over at Fairytale brownies. Maybe they could work some magic on it :) Enjoy! (Don't forget to scroll down and enter the giveaway :)



















Fairytale Brownie Ice Cream
(Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe via Martha Stewart)
Ingredients
8 large egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
2 cups 2% milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups heavy cream
Directions
1.In a medium saucepan, off heat, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and salt until blended. Stir cocoa powder into egg-yolk mixture. Gradually whisk in milk.
2.Cook over medium, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard thickens slightly and evenly coats back of spoon (it should hold a line drawn by your finger), 10 to 12 minutes. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl set over ice. Stir in cream. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until chilled. Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. When ice cream is at a soft serve stage, stir in 4 Fairytale Brownies.Transfer ice cream to a resealable plastic container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours (or up to 3 months)

Now, for the Giveaway..
The kind people at Fairytale Brownies would like to give one of the Sinful Southern Sweets readers a beautiful Mothers Day box of their sinful brownies.

wow Look at her and her shirt! I am sure they must have tasted so GOOD to get that effect!

Tickled Red said...

She is adorable :) I have never made ice cream before. I guess I will have to pony up because that is just to chocolaty to resist.

Christi said...

Wow...the brownies look wonderful. It was hard to choose a flavor of brownie, but I think the I would have to choose the Pecan brownie. Although the truffles did look delicious!

The Sunshine Crew said...

Such a cutie...can certainly tell that she liked the ice cream treat.
as far as the giveaway, I visited the Fairy Tale Brownies website. The flavors that sound the best to me are the Peppermint Truffle Brownie Seasonal Favorite and for everyday yumminess, the chocolate chip brownie.
Thanks for posting about this company. Their brownies look awesome!

You are so clever and funny! I laughed so hard when I read "she though it was so good that she wanted to share it with her shirt". Princess Runwilder is precious! Your ice cream looks absolutely mouth watering.

This is a fantastic giveaway! The peanut butter brownie sounds the best to me, followed by the raspberry swirl.

LOL my mom always knew what shirts were mine growing up going into the wash because they always had chocolate ice cream stains! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe and a sweet photo of the Princess!

Gonna have to say peanut butter holy yum.

Kathleen said...

Hey there! Regarding your question on my blog, you have to ask at your market where the anchovy paste is. Sometimes I've seen it with the Italian ingredients, sometimes with the canned meats and sometimes in the gourmet section depending on which market I'm at. Sorry I don't have a more definitive answer :)

Agreed. Martha Stewart knows her stuff. And to look at the photo, so does Princess Runwilder! She knows good ice cream when she sees it!
