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

1) chewy
2) thin layer of frosting
3) edge (as long as it's chewy & not crispy)

1. Fudgy-Chewy
2. No Frosting... Frosting on a brownie is like A1 on a great steak. Completely and utterly ridiculous.
3. Center piece. What is the point of liking them fudgy and chewy if they are crusty, eh?

Mmmmmmmmm Brownies. ^-^

1) Chewy or Fudgy, but rarely cakey.
2) Cakey brownies can be saved by frosting, frosting chewy or fudgy brownies is just gilding he lily.
3) The entire pan.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

edges of course, i love chewy

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterkerrymoon

1. There is nothing like a fudge brownie
2. No frosting please
3. Give me the middle piece

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

1) I love fudgey brownies
2) little frosting isn't bad if it isn't overpowering the brownie
3) Middle!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMelindaB

Chewy or cakey
No frosting
Edges all the way

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterjean

1) Fudgy is the way to go!
2) Ideally there wouldn't be any frosting, but I wouldn't turn it away if it did.
3) The edges are the best :)

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterKhol

1. Fudgey - "flourless torte"-style
2. Frosting a brownie is like dressing up Michaelangelo's David. Tragic.
3. Good brownies: edge, mediocre brownies: middle, there is no such thing as a bad brownie.

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterCori

fudgy, yes!! middle

February 12 | Unregistered Commenterarlene

My mouth is watering!!!

1. chewy,
2. Frosting makes everything better!!!
3. Edge for sure! Especially if the edge has all that extra frosting on it!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterTrish

1. Fudgy all the way

2. No Way Jose! They're awesome without it :)

3. I luuuuv the ones on the edge...I'll fight for those! :)))

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterCoda

1. Chewy all the way, but sometimes I do get in the mood for cakey/fudgy..only sometimes.
2. No frosting, they aren't cupcakes or cake! Gotta keep it simple!
3. I like it all! Sometimes I prefer baking them in the little muffin tins so that you get a good edge/crust to soft middle ratio. :)

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterWennie

Let's see cake, no frosting and absolutely on the edge! They have a special "edge" brownie pan for those edge lovers!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterChrissy Farnan
