Rice pudding ranks near the top of my comfort food totem pole. They are gentle on the sweet. They satisfy my carbohydrate cravings. They're filling. And, of course, they're just delish. So when I had some left-over rice, I was more than ready to make my friend, rice pudding again. Despite my love for rice pudding, I've only managed to make one kind of rice pudding - vanilla. This will always remain my favourite kind of rice pudding, but I decided that today would be the day I'd make chocolate rice pudding.
So, away I went on my beautiful mac. I browsed a few recipes online and found a gazillion different variations. Excellent for my indecisive self. After much deliberation and mental simulations of the different recipes, I decided to go with cocoa powder. I used this recipe from allrecipes.com and then added one heaped tablespoon of cocoa powder when I added the butter and vanilla essence.
I was confident about this rice pudding cuz I was using some rockin' cocoa powder - which I've learned is paramount in any chocolate recipe - to use a rockin' cocoa powder.
The result: Yum-Yummidy-Dum~
These can be enjoyed chilled or heated. So versatile, aren't they?
