The Prize! Simply Divine Brownies "Opposites Attract" (the ObamaBrownie)

I'm back! Apologies for going MIA. That school thing happened again. But I have good news: the semester is over (omg I'm a senior), and  I survived finals and the move back home!

So I won't waste any more time, even though now I have plenty to spare. (woot!)

Back to the goods...

Over a month ago, I wrote about a brownie contest held by Simply Divine Brownies...

It seems like it was just yesterday that I found out that they chose my brownie flavor suggestion (smoke salt caramel) to join their collection of delectable gourmet brownies. After a few short weeks, I received my prize for winning their contest- a full batch of these brownies! 

A full batch...45!... of "Opposites Attract" - a rich, fudgey chocolate brownie topped with a layer of caramel, sprinkled with smoke salt and drizzled with chocolate - arrived on campus for me to share with all my friends.

And share I did... reluctantly.


Most found the salty/sweet (the 'opposites'...) combo to work very well on top of that super rich brownie. I was a huge fan. I see why smoke salt caramels are President Obama's favorite candy.

*fist bump*

Thanks, Emma!

Samantha, the brownie is actually made by Simply Divine. I just came up with the flavor. But I think one of my summer projects is going to be recreating these... I'll post the recipe as soon as I get it right, fo sho!
