Brownie Points: a Simply Divine Brownies Giveaway!

Brownies are a masterpiece of American cookery. This is not opinion--it's fact. They are--to sum it up concisely--a simply divine treat.

Oh--what a perfect time to introduce the treasure of Portland, Maine--Simply Divine Brownies. They boast a retail bake shop, and will ship their brownies nationwide.

And oh, the brownies. At Casa de CakeSpy, we'd been mildly obsessed with these brownies since having discovered the adorable brownies that look like cupcakes, with the other items on the menu--like dense, chewy brownies in a plethora of flavors and sizes--just adding to the obsession.

And now, dear, lucky readers, you too can share this sweet joy.

Yup: Simply Divine has kindly offered a brownie care package for giveaway on this site.

What can you win? A parcel of pure pleasure, including a sampler of 12 assorted brownie flavors, a package of sweet brownie bites (perfect for smaller appetites, or, you know, eating 3 at a time), and one of those adorable aforementioned trompe l'oeil brownies. Not for nothin', but based on my calculations this is a parcel worth over $75, considering shipping and stuff.

Yeah, you wanna win this.

So how do you enter? It's easy. Just answer the following important brownie questions below in the comments section and you'll be entered to win this sweet package of postal bliss! Of course, if you couldn't possibly wait for brownie bliss, you can mos' def check them out online here and check out their blog here!

Fine Print: The giveaway will close on Sunday, February 22 at 12pm PST; the winner will be announced within the next 48 hours. Entrants in the US only, please. Good luck!

  1. What's your type of brownie: chewy, cakey, or fudgy?

We have a winner, friends! It is Pruittiporn from New Haven, CT, who has this to say about the above brownie poll:

1. I oscillate between fudgy and chewy.

2. No - I prefer my brownie add-ons baked in!

3. I prefer edge, but I'm not opposed to the middle either

Chewy, with frosting, from the edge - sounds good for breakfast to me!

February 12 | Unregistered Commentersillygirl

2. No frosting. I'm a purist.
3. Edges, of course! I want it crispy.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterKiira G

1. Cake brownies for me, thank you.
2. Plain (no frosting), thank you. I LOVE that top layer that gets shiny and flakes ever so slightly when you bite into the brownie!
3.Edges--more specifically the corner. I'll bake a pan and give the rest away just to keep the four corners!

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterdeede

1. Definitely CHEWY!
2. Frosting is a must on everything!
3. Sometimes a little crunch from the edge is needed!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterRobyn D.

2. Depends, none of that sickly sweet frosting from a can for me please. If it has real
choclate-y flavor, bring it on! Everything's better with a good frosting!
3. I like having a good crusty outer shell. So edge for me please!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAbby

Chewy, no frosting and from the middle. Yum.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMary Woe

1. Chewy
2. Frosting is a must!
3. The middle is the best part.
Now I'm craving a yummy brownie :)

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterTyler

1.What's your type of brownie: chewy please!
2.Frosting on brownies: usually no, but I'm not opposed to it. Especially if it's more chocolate.
3.Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: middle. always!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

1. Chewy
2. No frosting unless it is a worthy frosting for the decadent brownie itself.
3. Corners first then the middle. They are both good and give you different textures of the same wonderful thing.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterBrandi

1. Fuuuudgy, the more gooey chocolate the better!
2. Peanut butter frosting is the only acceptable answer
3. Middle, please!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterVanessa

1. i think the perfect borwnie would have the complete balance of cakey, chewy, and fudgy.
2. no frosting, your trying to turn the brownie into a cake and it's not
3. the edges are great when you want something for chewable while the center just fall apart in your hands. I think the whole pan is the best part of my day!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterCaitycake

1. What's your type of brownie: CHEWYYYYY
2. Frosting on brownies: no, just nuts
3. Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: EDGE!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterNisa

1. What's your type of brownie: I love mine chewy. Whenever my mom bakes brownies, I ask for the corner pieces. They're extra chewy, and oh so decadentally fudgey~
2. Frosting on brownies: No thank you, I like them the way they chocolatey are.
3. Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: EDGE! Especially the corners! God, I drool at the thought..

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterNiki

1. I love a chewy brownie!
2. I like them either way but frosting is definitely a delicious addition
3. I like the middle, no hard edges for me please.

I stumbled upon Simply Divine Brownies years ago, not sure how, but seeing their website opened my eyes to all the wonderful things you can do with this yummy treat! Would love to win this one!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSarah


Either way. It's still a scrumptious brownie. (Although my favorite brownies are topped with melted peppermint patties, so maybe I come down a little on the frosting side.)

Either; see previous answer.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMinde Briscoe

1. Fudgy! *yum*
2. No frosting. Frosting is for cake and sugar cookies, tyvm.
3. MIDDLE! Edges are gross!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterTraci

Fudgy, no frosting, edge

1) Bring on the fudge-a-licious brownies!
2) No frosting preferably, but it will get eaten either way.
3) All about the edges. I want that pan that is designed to have an edge on every piece. Totally worth the investment.
