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

  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.

  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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
