The Gingham Chicken Cornish Fudge

Gingham Chicken Fudge

My name's Beth and I'm a fudge-aholic.

I arrived home on Friday to find a parcel from The Gingham Chicken waiting on my doorstep containing handmade Cornish fudge in lots of delicious flavours to try....and try we did. In fact it's almost all gone and it's only Saturday evening.

Tracy, the lady behind The Gingham Chicken makes Cornish Fudge, Brownies and Cakes from her kitchen in Liskeard and is now selling fudge online. We 'met' on Twitter where she asked if I'd like to sample some of her fudge..... I'm very glad I said yes.

All the fudge is made in small batches for a really light and crumbly texture and Tracy, where possible uses Cornish ingredients including cream, butter and honey.

The fudge came beautifully packaged. The award winning Clotted Cream and Vanilla fudge arrived in a white box tied with red gingham ribbon with a pretty card (including the ingredients list) attached, the other flavours came in small transparent bags, tied with gingham ribbon and a gift card with the red chicken logo. I couldn't fault the packaging, it was unique and would stand out from the crowd.

Onto the flavours and we had the pleasure of sampling;
  • Cornish Sea Salt and Pecan
  • Chocolate Orange
  • Mint Chocolate
  • Lemon Meringue
  • Cherry and Almond
  • Ginger and Cornish Honey
  • Clotted Cream and Vanilla

My favourite? A very hard choice but it was between the Cornish Sea Salt and Pecan and the Chocolate Orange variety. Both equally delicious and moreish. But even the flavours I wouldn't necessarily choose to eat had me coming back for more. The Cherry and Almond was seriously addictive, even though I'm not that keen on almonds and the Ginger and Honey was lovely and warming.The one that most surprised me though was the Lemon Meringue Fudge - it was delicate, light and lemony and unlike any fudge I'd tasted before - definitely one to try!

Thank-you so much for the sample Tracy. You can follow The Gingham Chicken on Twitter @ginghamchicken and also on Facebook


  1. it, I've tried to make fundge not been successful.

  2. cornish fudge is quite special I think? it always reminds me of an old lady who I knew in my teens (she played the cello in a quartet with me!). She used to stand on the village green in Burnham Market during the annual fete making the most fabulous fudge and lemon curd on a camping stove! She sold out of both as they were made.

  3. I could eat a whole jar of my mums homemade Lemon Curd Fiona...can't find any shop bought one that matches up!!

  4. I just love fudge. I can't imagine my joy if someone left a box full at my door. I'd be in heaven.

  5. Awesome Recipe


  6. I do love a bit of fudge, but it has to be vanilla! I'm funny like that!

  7. Ooh these look good. Never made fudge but these look far better than what I could attempt. Like the sound of lemon meringue.

  8. What a tough job to choose a favourite! We, for one, think you made the right decision though Beth! Hope you don't mind but we've linked to your post on our Facebook page. :)

  9. This recipe is fantatstic, proper delicious. Thanks for sharing.
