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!

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

1. Definitely fudgy!
2. Un-iced.
3. Always go for a middle piece!

I love the chewy brownies with any type of nuts.
None frosted unless it is a cream cheese frosting.
I will fight someone for the edge.

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterJoy

1. chewy, longer to enjoy :)
2. yes, pure pleasure xoxoxo
3. edges, no calories!

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

Wow!! Oh how I love fudgey brownies and frosting is a must! Ganache if possible. =) I love the middle section of the brownie pan to avoid crunchy edges!

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterDevon B

1. Chewy - maybe a little fudgey
2. Absolutely no frosting. If I want frosting on a chocolate baked good, I make Coca-Cola Cake.
3. Always edge brownies! I love my all edge brownie pan!

February 18 | Unregistered Commenterkmackstress

1.) fudgy
2.) light frosting
3.) the corner piece!

My favorite type of brownie.. and this may seem a little odd.. is the crispy.. creamy kind.. the one that is a little over done at the edges.. and the inside is a little too fudgy.. perhaps its because i am not a good baker that i get them to turn out this way.. but each pan is like 2 separate kinds of brownies.... i also.. love the frosted and unfrosted brownie.. if someone is giving me brownies.. i will not turn either down.. add some walnuts.. and i will follow you around like a puppy for a week. ( perhaps thats why no one makes me brownies with nuts..hmm...) and i love every brownie... edge.. middle.. crumb.. side.. dropped... frozen... dry... mmmm.... i <3 brownies.

1) Fudgey
2) Chocolate frosting please. The more chocolate, the merrier!
3) Both!

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

1-Chewy, like a long chocolate orgasm in your mouth

2-No frosting, just fudgy goodness

3-the edge, as in living life on...

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterShari

1. Cake Brownies, although I will eat them all!
2. No frosting, but again I can't really say no to a brownie!

1. Definately Fudgey! I like my brownies almost underdone.
2. No Frosting needed if the brownies are super-moist, the way I like them.
3. I like the middle, but they're all good!

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterAmy L

Without a doubt, Fudgy.

Absolutely NO frosting.

The edge...to get a little crispy crunch with that fudge.

February 18 | Unregistered CommenterCheryl

1. Always chewy. All the time!
2. Frosting makes everything better!
3. Edge, a bit of crunch never goes wrong!

February 19 | Unregistered CommenterEllen

What's your type of brownie: chewy, cakey, or fudgy? Chewy, please.
Frosting on brownies: yes or no? I believe frosting is only far sub-par brownies. It's a cover up!
Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: edge or middle? Middle.
Thanks for the giveaway.

February 19 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

I am torn between chewy and fudgy brownies.
I used to be against frosting on brownies but the Wilton Chocolate Fudge Icing is *perfect* for brownies!
I love the center brownies!
