Looking to kick your rice pudding up a notch? Chocolate is certainly the way to do it!
1/4 cup of arborio rice
2 cups of water
2 1/4 cups of whole milk
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 cup of chocolate chips
1. Combine rice and water in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and boil for 10 minutes. Drain, rinse and set aside.
2. Combine milk and sugar in the same saucepan, bring to a boil over medium high heat. Add rice, lower heat and gently simmer for about 45 minutes or until the mixture thickens. (I always run my finger on the back of the spoon, if it leaves a track, it is done.)
3. Add chocolate chips and stir to melt into the mixture. Cool slightly, cover with plastic and cool completely in the refrigerator.
