Welcome to Chocolate-e-Claire’s, the home of delicious clotted cream fudge.
Nestling in the heart of rural North Devon is my delightful kitchen where you can find me most days, standing over a hot stove cooking up some amazing fudge. Needless to say the house often smells absolutely delicious.
I started my business in January 2018. with £14.00 worth of groceries. I’ve always loved making fudge, it makes great homemade Christmas presents and when I was pregnant, and had a sweet tooth the fudge always seamed to hit the right spot.
My original recipe was from a old cookery book handed down to me from my mother but it needed some tweaking. Once I was satisfied with the recipe I sourced some local Devon clotted cream and made my first batch of “Devon Clotted Cream Fudge”
I made a Facebook page and began sending fudge by post to my customers, I tried selling at a couple of small events, and then I ventured out to local farm shops and holiday parks.
Recently I have supplied fudge favours for a wedding, to the bride and grooms specification.
If you can’t find me in the kitchen, then I’m either busy looking after the kid, entertaining Airbnb guests, walking the dog or teaching children to swim at the pool in Bude.
Failing that, I’m drinking Prosecco!
