Chocolate Friday is back again - Why you say? Because we're celebrating the end of another crazy week.
Rice Pudding is extremely comforting. And you know what else is comforting to me? Stirring risotto over and over with nothing but complete silence... After a fast paced week I just want to decompress with a mindless action like stirring.
And the rice doesn't talk back.
The addition of chocolate? Well that's just an extra special YAHOO! that the weekend is here.
Chocolate Rice Pudding
1 cup Arborio Rice
1 14 oz can of Light Coconut Milk
1 cup whole milk
2 bars (8 oz) Ghiradeli Bittersweet Chocolate chopped
In a saucepan melt 2 tbsp of butter on medium. Add rice and stir for a few minutes before you add the milk. Meanwhile combine the milks together and ladle into the rice. Stir until the rice absorbs the milk and then ladle more. Do this until you are done with the milk and the arborio rice is completely cooked.
Add the chopped bittersweet chocolate and incorporate.
Note* This is a rich dessert so you may only want 1 bar of chocolate. The choice is yours. For reheating in a microwave add a little milk or cream to it before you warm up. It will come back to its creamy consistency again..
