And the leftovers are delicious for breakfast!
For this rice pudding recipe, I took my stovetop rice pudding and added two different kinds of chocolate to it. If you love rice pudding this is a must make.
- long grain rice
- baking cocoa
- chocolate chips
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup long grain rice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 1/2 cups milk
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- In a large saucepan bring water to a boil.
- Stir in the rice and salt.
- Cover and reduce to a simmer.
- Cook for 18 minutes, stirring a few times. ( You can use cooked rice you and skip these steps and start with cooked rice and step 5. )
- Stir milk and sugar into the cooked rice.
- Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a light boil.
- Reduce to a simmer.
- Cook uncovered stirring frequently until the mixture starts to thicken. This will take a while. Stir often to keep the mixture from sticking and scorching for about 45-50 minutes or until the mixture is very thick. It should be thick enough that a spoon should stand up in it.
- Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla, baking cocoa, and chocolate chips
- Stir until combined and chocolate is melted.
- Serve warm, cold, or at room temperature. We like this warm, but the leftovers also make a great breakfast the next day. Whipped cream is not necessary, but is delicious.
You can use leftover over cooked rice in place of the water and long grain rice. Skip to step five is using leftover cooked rice.
