Simply Divine Brownies

Sculptured Or Square, These Brownies Will Delight

 

CAPSULE REPORT: These are among the most charmingly-decorated brownies we’ve come across—hand-cut in shapes for every holiday, or decorated in squares to make any day seem like a holiday.

 

A mother and daughter in Maine are making brownies that they call Simply Divine. Every day, they bake them to order, mixing up flour, eggs, dark brown sugar, unsalted butter, unsweetened and semisweet chocolate and vanilla. They whip up batches of brownies, which they then decorate in the most charming ways, as you can see on this page. We think they are simply divinely designed—we’ve never seen a line of brownies quite so attractive.

The taste profile is an unusual one: brownies themselves are dark and chocolatey; the frostings are very sweet. As a result, we think Simply Divine Brownies will delight the younger folk—who will remember them for years to come—and those somewhat older folk who have a very sweet tooth.

Silhouette Brownies

Simply Divine’s Silhouette brownies are cut from a brownie base with cookie cutters, then dipped in fine chocolate, frosted with a hard, boiled icing and festively decorated, and hand decorated for your celebration.

Brownies make party favors and place holders for Halloween, Thanksgiving and all occasions to come.

 

Acorn Brownie Candy Corn Pumpkin Brownies
Autumn Acorn Brownie: Iced in chocolate and brushed with exquisite edible gold luster, the brownies are individually wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon. 5.1 ounces each. Candy Corn Brownie: Iced in yellow-and orange-infused white chocolate and sprinkled with orange sanding sugar, they are wrapped in a cellophane bag tied with a string of jack-o-lanterns. 5.4 ounces each. Pumpkin Brownie: Iced with orange-infused chocolate, brushed with food luster and decorated with a twisted icing vine. Wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with an autumn ribbon. 6 ounces each.

There’s also a ghost brownie and a spectacular black cat. If you don’t see it on the website, call.

Silhouette brownies are special orders, so it may take three or four days to be scheduled and baked. Please allow at least a week’s lead time when placing your order.

Flavored Brownies

The square brownies, too, are the stuff that dreams are made of. Forget the thrill of the white stuff in the Oreo®—these brownies have an inch of buttercream frosting, and the lily is gilded with even more “stuff.” There are a dozen flavors available at any given time. Examples of the standards include:

Cocoa's Incredible Creations Crunch Time Peanut Butter Brownie
Cocoa’s IncrEdible Creations: Try a chocolate brownie with a thick milk frosting, topped with jewel-like sparkling sanding sugar. Crunch Time: Chunks of caramel in the brownie base with a topping of butter-toasted almonds and butter brickle. Love Affair: A relationship that truly will last forever, this brownie is topped with peanut butter frosting and peanut butter cup pieces, with PB morsels tucked into the brownie.
NeedHimBrownie Peppermint Brownie Blueberry Brownie
Need’him: Several flavor favorites combine in this one: coconut-filled Needham frosting is sealed with a dark chocolate glaze. Peppermint Peace: Pink buttercream frosting is swirled with pieces peppermint sticks and drizzled with dark chocolate. Singin’ The Blues: Double antioxidants, chocolate brownie with blueberry buttercream frosting.

Flavored brownies are smaller than Silhouette brownies. Brownies are between 2.3 and 4.4 ounces each. There’s a specialty feature flavor each month, which you can order as part of the Star Sampler. Flavors include such unusual brownie flavors such as apple pie, chocolate-covered raisin sweet potato cheesecake and whoopie pie.

 

Send a box to your favorite princess. No fairy godmother (or father) could send a better gift.
