Our recipe for dark drip ganache is trending on the blog these days! Of course I’ve also been asked for the recipe with white chocolate. So without further ado: Here’s the white drip ganache recipe for you!
White chocolate is a bit more finicky than dark chocolate, because it melts (and breaks) at lower temperatures than dark chocolate. That’s because white chocolate, unlike dark oder milk choc, contains no cocoa liquor, but only cocoa mass – and a whole lot more of cocoa butter.
When making white ganache for dripping, you will only use half as much heavy cream than for the dark drip ganache. Optional: For a really nice sheen, you can add half a teaspoon of glucose or corn syrup.
To make white drip ganache, you will need:
- 200 g white chocolate
- 100 ml heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp corn syrup
- a chilled cake to be dripped
In order to not overheat the ganache, I usually heat the cream and chocolate together, in burts of 30 seconds of the microwave. It’s important to stir well after each melting round.
After 2 or 3 rounds in the microwave, your chocolate should be melted. Let it cool down for 1-2 hours, until it flows in thick ribbons from your spatula.
Grab your chilled cake from the fridge only moments before you are ready to drip! (On the turntable today: Chocolate ganache cake :))
Then you can start dripping! Personally, I prefer to use a spoon, doing the sides first. Then I finish the top with an angled spatula.

Here’s the print version of the recipe for you:
White drip ganache
- 100 ml heavy cream
- 200 g white chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 tsp glucose syrup or light corn syrup (optional)
Combine the chopped chocolate and the cream in a microwave-safe bowl.
Heat the mixture during bursts of 30 seconds in the microwave, at 75-80% power. Between each interval, stir with a spatula for at least 30 seconds.
You can emulsify the ganache with a stick blender. That will also help dissolve the last lumps of chocolate. Just be careful not to incorporate too many air bubbles.
Stir in syrup, if using.
Let ganache cool for an hour or two, until the consistency is very thick.
