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!

2. Usually no, but I haven't turned down a frosted one yet!

2. No frosting
3. Edge

..and 4. YES to walnuts! I will put a ton of walnuts in brownies.. still seeking the best chewy recipe though. The walnuts toast as the brownie bakes and is a perfect match for chocolate. I want one NOW..

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

No frosting, thank you.
I like the chewy edges, so I always go for them!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterJessica J.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

1.What's your type of brownie: chewy, cakey, or fudgy? All of the above! I've never met a brownie I didn't like!
2.Frosting on brownies: of course!
3.Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: edge or middle? I love them both equally

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSasha

Super, now I am craving a brownie.

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterjulia

1. Definitely Fudgy
2. Absolutely no frosting!
3. Center of the pan for sure!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

2. sometimes. or melted choc chips!
3. give me a corner please!

February 12 | Unregistered Commenternichole pinz

Definitely chewy.
Everything's better with frosting.
I love the middle. Husband eats the edges. Perfect match.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSara

1. Cakey and light as the first winter snow, melting against your lips
2. Like a dress, a frosting should compliment the body, not the other way around. Mostly a frosting makes up for what the brownie itself lacks. The best brownie knows no top layer.
3. The edge offers a crisp and chewy surprise, allowing you to not just enjoy but truly bite into a brownie with hungry lust.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAlexandra Caffee

1. fudgy
2. I will eat both!!!
3. Edge!!! wow. I am drooling just thinking of these delicous brownies!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I love moist, chewy brownies. They're usually so rich, that frosting would just push it over the top and result in sugary overload. And as for the last question, I'm ALWAYS an edge person! No matter if it's brownies, blondies, giant cookies, bread, or even fruit, I'm always after the edge.

I can take or leave frosting...sometimes it's tasty. sometimes it's distracting.
Please. I'll eat a brownie from anywhere in the pan!!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterBecki

1) chewy!!!
2) a thin layer of a thick frosting
3) i want the edge on all four sides!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAmber Barnum

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterNicola

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterRNoel

1. Chewy! *
2. Yes...the more add-ons, the better! *
3. edge! *

* I am an equal opportunity brownie eater. I will not discriminate based on chewiness, flavor, or edginess. I will eat all of them. :D

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterJanet

frosting? heck no!
edges. cuz the crunch is a good contrast to the almost raw center.
