FR: I will put some sugar on it

I am making a crème brûlée and I am wondering if my attempt is correct. I am trying to say I will put on it some sugar or I will put some sugar on it.

My try:
Je mettrai dessus du sucre.

Is my use of dessus correct?

Merci Beaucoup !

    As MC said, the placement of "dessus" before the short direct object "du sucre" is akward in this example, but not incorrect. It can even be desirable if the direct object is too lengthy.
    Je mettrai dessus du sucre qui vient de la boutique bio à côté de chez moi.
