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?
  2. Frosting on brownies: yes or no?
  3. Which brownies in the pan do you covet most: edge or middle?


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

fudgy, NO, middle!


February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAlicja Rose

I like a nice chewy brownie.

Frosting on brownies, no. (But ganache on brownies, oh yeah!!)

I think I'm more of a middle of the brownie gal.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterJane

1) fudgy
2) I'll take frosting, if it's really good. Otherwise, I like it plain.
3) I prefer the middle.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

1. I'm a chewy brownie girl.

2. NO to frosting. I'm a purist.

3. Edges!

Definitely a chewy edge piece. But, depending on my mood, frosting or no frosting is a toss-up. Okay...If I have to commit...no frosting.

I invite you to enter my Valentine giveaway - you could win a pink, bead-knitted purse, hand-knit by me, with a chocolate bar charm.


February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMarsha

1. Chewy!
2. No... unless it's really special.
3. Edge!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

1 - Chewy

2 - Frosting? Yes

3 - Edge or middle? Whichever piece is bigger!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

gotta go with the fudgy-chewy mix. especially if chocolate chunks are involved.

i can take or leave the frosting; they're good either way. but if i'm taking the frosting, then there should be sprinkles on top!

middle middle middle.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAlison

3. Edges

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterAbby

2. NO frosting for me, thanks
3. Edge! Because you get a little crunch and a little chew.
This might be the best give-away ever!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I love chewy brownies from the center of the pan but would never turn down cake-like brownies from the edges! Frosted with a peanut butter or mint frosting would make them devine!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

Cakey brownie for sure, from the middle with a ton of frosting!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMarisah

1. I am IN LOVE with brownies, it's mean to discriminate between them (they will start crying if you eat only chewy or cake) so all of them chewy, fudge, cake!
2. Plain it's a brownie not a cupcake.
3. I'm a corner person, but will be happy to eat all or any parts. =)
