Ever since Clare Britton received her first Wilton chocolate making kit as a young girl, there was no turning back. Her fun hobby of chocolate making transformed into a full-fledged passion: reading book after book about chocolate and working through plenty of trial and errors in the kitchen. Britton studied business management at Ryerson from 1989 to 1991 but dropped out from disinterest. After a break, she continued studying psychology at Ryerson, earning her degree in the mid-90s. The beginning of her business, ChocolateClare, started part-time five years ago when she still worked as a hospital administrator.
