SugarLou’s Rich Chocolate Ganache: So Easy to Make


SugarLou’s Rich Chocolate ganache is so easy to make! It’s versatile enough to be made into a filling, glaze or just a smooth chocolatey spread. Here is my favorite way of making it, it won’t take much time, I promise!


  • 1 cup good dark chocolate chips (I personally use Callebaut or Ghirardelli chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup

All you’ll need for an ultra-amazing secret ingredient to making a good chocolate cake.

“Rich, dark and intensely chocolatey ganache that is so delicious, you may just eat it on its own!”


  1. Heat the cream over the stove until it simmers then turn off the heat. DO NOT let the cream reach a boiling point.
  2. Place your chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolates. Stir until the chocolate dissolves and becomes glossy.
  3. Add in the golden syrup and continue to stir until just combined.
  4. Voila! Your delicious decadent ganache is ready.
  5. Serve by the bowl or pour over cake if you must. I like to make it into Basic Moist Chocolate Cake.
