Since 1976

Laurence (Larry) Denman also known as “Mr. Fudge” started the Heavenly Fudge Shoppes of Cherokee, NC in 1976.   Mr. Fudge meticulously labored over his fudge recipes, testing, tasting and perfecting fudge and chocolate recipes throughout the years.  Mr. and Mrs. Denman opened their first store in downtown Cherokee in 1976 and then a second location in 1978.

In 2016 the Denmans' retired and sold the business, however the recipes and standards have not wavered. More than 40 years later Heavenly Fudge still creates confectioneries in the same manner and quality.

Stop by our shop in Cherokee, NC or in Bryson City, NC. We look forward to serving you!
