Sugar Free Chocolate Frosting (Ganache)

You’d never guess this rich dark chocolate frosting is sugar free! Pour the ganache over your dessert for a glossy-smooth finish, or chill then whip it into a deliciously spreadable frosting.


There are many brands of sugar free chocolate chips on the market. Right now, Lily’s & Krisda are my favorite brand.

Combine the hot cream with the remaining ingredients and gently stir until mixture is smooth.

Pour over cake while still warm for a smooth chocolate coating, or chill for about 1 hour in fridge until chocolate is firm. Then whip to soften and spread over cake.
