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!

What's your type of brownie: CHEWY brownies for sure!!! With of course a hit of fudgey goodness :D

Frosting on brownies: No frosting, I like the crack thats made on top of brownies when they come out of the oven so no frosting for me. It ruins the crack

Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: Edge!!! Brownie crusts are the best. The chocolate crunch taste in the beginning then the soft, rich, fudgey taste when you get to the middle :D

Chewy, no, edge. :)

February 17 | Unregistered CommenterMisGarcia

My ideal brownie would be chewy and fudgy! Nay to the frosting, and I always go for the middle :D

February 17 | Unregistered CommenterKara

Cakey, no frosting (but if you insist, I won't refuse it), and edges especially corners!

And despite what I said, I'm drooling over the different toppings on the brownies in the picture!

February 17 | Unregistered CommenterLaura S.

2.I don't normally have frosting on my brownies, once with a mint frosting- delish!

1. Definately Fudgy!
2. No frosting, it interferes with the brownies natural deliciousness.

I love howversatile brownies and blondies have become....it's nice to see the variety and how much fun they have become. They have always been my favorite!

# What's your type of brownie: fudgy. yes please.
# Frosting on brownies: if you insist... i'm not turning down more sugar
# Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: it doesnt matter! i'm terrible at making decisions though, and an edge piece rewards me with a bit of crunch and a bit of softness so I usually go for an edge. and then a middle. and then a corner. etc.

February 17 | Unregistered Commenterbrie

Brownies are the perfect treat: like a cake but also like a cookie, almost like candy and sometimes even a little bit like a pie - depends on how they are made! These Simply Divine brownies look like pure heavenly bliss....... I hope I win!
