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

What's your type of brownie: chewy, cakey, or fudgy? I *LOVE* fudgy brownies *swoon*

Frosting on brownies: yes or no? NO, it detracts from the brownie flavor but powdered sugar is nice. :)

Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: edge or middle? either - seriously it's a brownie! :)

February 19 | Unregistered CommenterJen

1. I love chewy ones!
2. Alitte frosty never hurt anyone!
3. The corner ones are the best!!

February 19 | Unregistered CommenterKatie DaRonco

1. Chewy. Love a dense brownie.
2. No frosting unless it it's creamy and is not the same flavor as the brownie (No choco on choco)
3. Edges, edges edges.


February 19 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

1)We are definitely fudgy lovers.
2)We love frosting but can't wait long enough to frost.
3)The edges have a texture you don't get in the middle.

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

3. Middle

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterSwaniano

1. fudgy please.
2. no frosting. i feel it makes them too sweet.
3. middle. i like the all surrounding softness =)

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

1. Fudgy!!
2. No frosting
3. Middle piece

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

2. Frosting is not necessary, but if it's vanilla -- BRING. IT. ON.
3. Edges = crispy = perfection.

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterSherri

The chewiest, chewy brownies with no frosting (why add anything more to an already perfect treat?) , cut right out of the middle would make me a happier person!!

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterJamillah

Fudgy-like a dark chocolate truffle fudgy
No icing please just the brownie with the fudgy middle
But of course the middle of the pan where all the fudginess lives !

February 20 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

1) Chewy
2) Yes, as long as it doesn't overwhelm the flavor and texture of the brownie!
3) Edges are a must!

February 21 | Unregistered Commenterpatty

1. Fudgy all the way
2. No icing, please
3. It depends on my mood. But really... who is going to turn down a brownie because it's not the edge or it's not a middle???
