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.
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.

I like all brownies, but I am partial to Blondies! :)
Cannot resist my mom’s cheesecake brownies. I have a feeling these brownies will be right in there
My favorite brownies of all time are the mint brownies at Aroma’s, a coffee shop in Williamsburg, Virginia. I spent so much time studying there one summer that by late July, when i’d come in they’d grab a mug and plate a brownie without my having to ask!
My aunts are my favorite- she adds instant espresso powder.
I am a fan on facebook!!! :)
My favorite brownie of all times is chocolate peanut butter brownie! Anything that has to do with the two is a winner for me! YUMMM!!!
My favorite brownie is a recipe from the back of the raw sugar bag. Ooooh-we it’s simple but good.

This sounds amazing… I’ve never had goat cheese brownies before but I adore goat cheese and brownies! I’m really not bragging here, but the best brownies are probably ones that I have made (I’ve made a ton of different kinds, they’re all yummy!)

i love really fudgy brownies. the brownies from the baked cookbook are the best ever.
My favorite brownie is a dark chocolate chewy one with a crackled top. No nuts or chunks please!
I am a fan of any kind of brownie – though I currently have been enjoying mint or altoid brownies. YUM.
I love a caramel chocolate cream cheese brownie.
I absolutely adore chocolate and peanut butter brownies!!
I follow you on FB
The best ones that I have ever made were a recipe from Bon Appetit called Cocoa Brownies with Browned Butter and Walnuts. Best out of the box is TJ’s Truffle Brownies. Really good for boxed brownies.
I like you guys on facebook!
The best brownie I’ve ever had is actually a basic recipe I got from allrecipes.com years ago, and have doctored to fit my taste.
Also: Like L&OO on FB!
The best brownies I have ever had are these deep dish brownies made with olive oil. AH.MAY.ZING.

Love my brownies with a crisp edge to them (one of the new pans is on my Christmas wish list). I prefer mine with nuts, and not gooey or dripping with frosting, etc.
I used to make cream cheese brownies with honey to help cut down on the sugar. So dense, so moist, so gooey. I loved them. I haven’t made them in years, but they’re still my absolute favorite.
Being asked to think of the best-ever brownie I’ve eaten has brought back such a happy flood of incredible brownie memories… but the best I’d have to say was one from the Brooklyn bakery Baked: They make a “sweet and salty” brownie with caramel and fleur de sel… oh my word.
Brownies are and have always been my ultimate sweet weakness.

My favorite brownie has to be the very fluffy and thick at the same time ones that taste like hot cocoa but waaaay better and have chocolate chips and walnuts in them!!
I’m already a fan of Love & Olive Oil on Facebook
hard decision between Kate Hepburn’s brownies, Nick Maglieri’s spectacular brownies and Maida Heatter’s Palm Beach Brownies, but I guess I’ll say Kate Hepburn’s.
A caterer in town called Monty’s makes the best brownies that are gooey but still have chocolate chunks in them. They are amazing.
There aren’t brownies that I don’t love, but I do like them with Bailey’s and Mint.
My favorite brownies are, somewhat embarrassingly, those made from the recipe on the back of the container of Ghiardelli sweetened cocoa powder.
I am facebook friends with you already!
My mom’s brownies are my favorite – they are super dark, made from bittersweet chocolate, and are fudgey. I am powerless around them!
AND I tweeted! Twitter handle is same as here. :-)
Liked the FB page!
Ooooh, those look so so good.
My fav brownie has to be my grandmother’s chocolate chip blondies. OK technically not a brownie but still.
Oh goodness. Looks deliciously sweet.

The best brownie I’ve ever had… a fudgy dark chocolate brownie with pockets of rich dulce de leche. Mmm… so good!
My daughter made a wonderful batch of soft, chewy, chocolate brownies with a touch of hazelnut last year. Hope she makes more this Christmas.
Yay for Olive and Sinclair’s beautiful graphics! My favorite all-time brownie is the last one I had (what can i see, the stomach-memory is fickle): fudgy brownies with bits of peppermint Jo-Jos dispersed throughout. Yum. And I’m already a fan on FB! :)

My favorite brownie ever is from a New Orleans deli called Welty’s. It’s basically amazing!
oh YUM! I love brownies with a Symphony Bar baked in the middle.
i’m not sure what it’s called but my friend’s mom baked these brownies that had cookies in them! they were amazing (:
I love my BIL’s caramel brownies. But I think I could switch to the goat cheese brownie if I win.
I followed you on twitter too (redis93)
Best brownie I’ve ever had… was a classic brownie, dense and fudgy, with a thin layer of chocolate ganache frosting and studded with white chocolate chips.
GIRL, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a brownie. But honestly, and I’m being totes serious. I remember loving the boxed kind growing up.
Do you hate me?
I’ve never met a brownie I didn’t like :)
My favorite Brownies are the kind that are drizzled with caramel! I just love the texture contrast of the dense gooey Brownie with the chewy caramel!
Also, I follow your page on Facebook.
I love my mom’s brownies, which she puts all kinds of things like coconut and chocolate chips in. So good.

Homemade brownies are the best!
Goat cheese and brownies??? That sounds so good!
My favorite brownie is from King Arthur, it is in between a cake brownie and a fudge brownie. It is great!
definitely the mint brownies my best friend made last year! tasted like gooey fudge with a perfect layer of mint cream in the middle! yum!
There’s a caramel brownie in a coffee shop in Eastsound on Orcas Island in Washington state that is to die for!
Have just “liked” you on facebook :) happy holidays!

What is your all-time favorite brownie, best you’ve ever had? = probably the ones I make that I call fudgy nutella brownies b/c they are sooooo dense and rich. No one else makes brownies thick, dense, or rich enough for me. Except you! Yours look…amazing. Must try.
homemade by my best bud, Erin.
The brownies from Lola’s Cookies (in Paris) are by far the best I’ve ever had! They take “death by chocolate” to a whole new meaning! So good.
Oh! And I’m a fan on Facebook!
My favorite brownie?
When I was a kid my mom made Betty Crocker brownies, but always took them about about 10 minutes early. The middle ones were so warm, so gooey, and just barely cooked. Sprinkled with powered sugar? The. best.
My grandmother’s brownies are the best. She even changed up her recipe the year I was completely vegan bc she knew I loved them so much! ps…I already follow you on fb!
I also follow you on facebook. :)
My mother-in-law makes great brownies with peanut butter chips inside. I’m pretty sure they come right out of a box, but whatever!
My all-time favorite brownie was served to me at the Bliss Spa, which I found out were from Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken NJ.
