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. 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

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

1. Fudgey - most definitely!

3. The middle! I don't like the chewy edges...

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterClaire

I'm a fan of all three types of brownies :) Chewy, Cakey, and Fudgy!
I'll pass on the icing if you please.
and i always go for the middle pieces. i don't like the outside crunchiness

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterErin

1. CHEWY!!
2. Yes, i love frosting!
3. I know the edges are good, but i still like the soft middle ones!!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterCupcakesomg!

1) Chewy

2) I love both the edges for their chewiness and the middle for it's gooeyness.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

1. Fudgy
2. No frosting
3. Middle

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

1. hmmm. i think fudgy is my most desired attribute. but i wouldn't turn away chewy or cakey.
2. the purist in me says no frosting. again, no brownie will be refused.
3. middle pieces reign supreme. i'm happy to consume the perimeter, if topped with ice cream.

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterdj

1. Fudgy
2. Frosting! Frosting always makes things better.
3. Middle. Or edge. Really all of the pan.

February 12 | Unregistered Commenteralice

1. chewy
2. no frosting
3. middle only!

February 12 | Unregistered Commenteracoreana

Chewy, most definitely
NO FROSTING - unless it's marshmallow-y.
If they're cooked right, I want the corner piece the most - if they're a little burned, just an edge, plz

2.) Frosting? Sure! The more the merrier!
3.) Always middle.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterTracey

Fudgy with frosting and clearly from the middle!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

1. fudgy
2. definitely frosting
3. mmm hard edges

February 12 | Unregistered Commenteralex

Fudgy, but sometimes a little chewy, NO frosting, and from the middle :). Warm if possible!

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterallisonemme

Chewy/fudgy (not an option you offered, but it is the Holy Grail of brownie texture), no icing please, and any piece will do :)

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSzig

Chewy, no frosting (usually), and from the middle.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterKati

My favorites are the moist and chewy ones. I'm not so much a frosting girl as someone who goes for mix-ins...And I like the ones that are just inside the edge but not quite the middle. I guess I want it both ways. : )
