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 like somewhere in between a fudgy and a cakey brownie, something thats chewy, but not crumbly!
2. If ice cream is considered an icing, then yes!
3. Middle all the way!

1) Chewy, delicious brownies
2) I can go either way on the frosting, but I especially love peanut butter frosting!
3) Loooove edge pieces!

1. chewbaca
2. word to the frosting, about 1/2" thick.!
3. I can't believe how much time it took me to mull this over, but I'm gonna have to go with the middle.

1. While I think that all brownie types have their place, I would select a fudgy brownie if I was forced to choose.
2. Frosting? Yes! What a treat!
3. Mmm. The edges are the best.

Now I have to go and find a brownie somewhere. :)

1. What's your type of brownie: Definitely chewy! A little crisp on the outside but with a perfectly chewing inside.
2. Frosting on brownies: Of course! Frosting on everything!
3. Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: Middle because there's are only 4 corners, but there's always plenty of middle. :)
