TWD: Arborio Rice Pudding White, Black (or both!)



I love rice pudding!!!!!

Kozy Shack rice pudding with a little cinnamon has always been a comfort snack for me- how exciting to make it on my own!

I gave this a shot earlier in the week before the P's & Q's came up and had rice soup. I cooked the rice for about 40 minutes and went half & half with the vanilla and chocolate servings. I still cooled it, hoping it would thicken up, and ate a vanilla serving the next day. Even though it was soupy- I absolutely loved the flavor and knew I had to give the recipe another shot. I tried the chocolate variety before dumping the rest and the flavor just blew me away. I had no idea rice pudding could be so yummy with added flavors. 


Chocolate & Vanilla Rice Soup!

Fast forward a few days later, the P's & Q's were up and I was happy to see I wasn't the only one with rice soup. It was so cool to see that Dorie keeps up with the recipes and I was so grateful for her recipe correction and gave the recipe another shot. This time I only made chocolate rice pudding and after 50 minutes, I was ready to eat the rice pudding hot. It was killing me to wait the 6 hours for it to chill- I'm glad I went out to see James Bond to get away from the temptation!

This is so yummy and just so perfect and just so perfectly easy to make (and clean as long as the milk doesn't boil over by accident. whoops!). Even my husband enjoyed it and he is no fan of rice pudding. Deelish!

Merci Beaucoup to Isabelle of Les Gourmandises d'Isa for such an excellent choice this week!

I liked the chocolate rice pudding much better when it was warm! Yours looks great even if it was a little soupy.

Nice job, doing it twice to get it right! It's always good to know others have the same problem with a recipe, isn't it?

Your rice pudding looks great. I can't tell from your pics that they are soupy.

Isn't it great that we can make a better version than Kozy Shack? Awesome! Both flavors look very tasty.
