My first Valentine's Day with him was, of course, special. I received all of the typical Valentine gifts: roses, candy, and dinner out. :-)
However, before my boyfriend, there was my dad. I remember finding a small treat on my breakfast plate each Valentine's Day. Usually something simple, like conversation hearts or Little Debbie heart cakes, but my dad wanted me and my sisters, his girls, to know he loved them.
Now, I know there are plenty of Valentine boycott'ers out there! But, Valentine's Day doesn't have to be hated! Although you should be showing your love with your favorite people every day, Valentine's Day gives you a special opportunity not to miss telling them!
Ok, so how could you show them?
C'mon! You can think harder than that!! I have been blessed with a husband who STILL gets me flowers on and off throughout the year, so I have requested that he not spend money on roses whose prices are hiked up 3x just because it's "the" day.
Ok... how about a big ol' heart filled with cheap, tough chocolates?
Exactly. I don't like cheap, tough chocolate, either.
Ok, ok... I got it! Something fun! Something different!
Something pretty! Something pretty tasty!!
How about ordering some Fairytale Brownies?
Alyssa from Fairytale Brownies generously sent me a Valentine Dozen to review.
Never have I watched so excitedly for the UPS man to arrive!
Unfortunately, UPS man was late on expected package arrival day. So late, that we were heading out the door when my brownies arrived. I was soo anxious to rip into the package, but I wanted to get pictures, and I also wanted time to TASTE each brownie.
So... I looked longingly at the pretty box and had to wait.
As soon as we got back home and the kids were put to bed, I snapped a few pictures and then the deciding-which-flavor-to-start-with-game began!
Even though I didn't realllly want to share once I saw all of those brownies, I told my husband that I would cut each brownie in half, so we could each give our opinion (I'm supposed to be sharing the love, right)?! ;-)
Fairytale's Valentine Dozen contained 12 - 3"x3" gourmet brownies. One of each of their delicious flavors.
Each Fairytale brownie begins with "rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate blended with pure creamery butter and farm fresh eggs. All-natural Fairytale Brownies are certified kosher and free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, preservatives and artificial colors."
So, how did they taste?? DELICIOUS! The brownies were soft and rich and fudgy. Yummy.
We loved them all, but my favorites were the Raspberry Swirl and Mint Chocolate. Hubby's favorites were the Walnut and Espresso Nib.
What are you going to get that special someone for Valentine's Day?? It's only a few weeks away! I would MUCH rather receive a Valentine Dozen of brownies rather than a dozen roses!!
