Southern Artisan Brownie Box GIVEAWAY

Belle Chevre Olive Sinclair Chocolate Brownies

More baking with goat cheese. This time in the form of brownies. Belle Chevre Cremery has brought back their popular Southern Artisan Brownie Gift box this holiday season, and for good reason. The box comes with 3 bars of Olive & Sinclair chocolate (produced right here in Nashville!) and a log of Belle Chevre goat cheese. Use the included recipe to prepare some of the most unusually decadent brownies you’ve ever had. And while I can’t share the recipe with you, let me just say they were thoroughly enjoyed by some of Nashville’s toughest food critics (also known as the Nashville Food Bloggers). I brought this batch to our annual holiday party (and white elephant DISH exchange!) and they were devoured, along with other delectable goodies like currant & mint meatballs (Angela, you MUST share the recipe!), Happy Holidays Punch from Teresa, and (prepare yourselves), Bite-sized Rosemary & Dried Cherry Biscuits with Brined and Smoked Duck Breasts with Black Garlic Aioli and Spicy Cherry Jam. Phew, that’s a mouthful, in more ways than one.

Needless to say, it was quite a spread. And quite a party.

Southern Artisan Brownie Box Giveaway

Now, back to this brownie box.

It’d make a great gift for the goat cheese and/or chocolate lover in your life. Or keep it for yourself. Whatever, I’m not one to judge. Either way, I’m giving one box away to one lucky L&OO reader! Also special just for you guys, for a limited time get a 10% discount on Belle Chevre holiday gift boxes. Simply use code LAOO2011.

    Swedish brownies are the best – kladdkaka :) The big difference is there is no baking powder in Swedish brownies and also there is a lot more sugar. http://delishhh.com/2010/04/08/swedish-brownie-%e2%80%9dkladdkaka%e2%80%9d/

    I’m not sure how he did it but the leader of my morris team would bring brownies for every practice. Delicious brownies with ooey gooey in the middle for those who like that and perfectly crisp outsides for those who like their brownies cakey. Rich but not overwhelming, I spent 2 years eating at least 2 pieces each week.
