Rice pudding takes a while to get around the idea that rice can be eaten as a sweet. One might say, why doesn’t anyone create a pasta dessert. And they’d be rather correct. However, this is something that can convert you into a proper ice pudding lover. It turns you, it really would. The chocolate adds decadence to the dessert and slowly would make someone into the number one lover of the stuff. Beware it can be contagious!

Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

Like every recipe on the planet, there is a twist. Everyone seeks to challenge the already known and perfectly satisfying dish once in a while. For the purists out there, there is nothing better than the original thing. We get it. Rice, milk, sugar, raisin, and a little butter and vanilla is enough to make this super-rich and tasty dessert. The creaminess of the sticky rice is amazing and we hope you’ll love eating it slightly warm coming right from the oven in your very own terracotta ramequin. Another way to make this very unique is to cook the rice directly into the milk. This could take a couple of hours but well, try this out and let us know.
Coffee Rice Pudding

In fact, try this dessert with a Martini espresso also made from instant coffee they’ll thank you forever.

Salted caramel has been in our hearts for a very long time and a break from the norm. If you are a chocolate or coffee lover, or both, this is a brilliant alternative to spice things up a little. The extraordinary layers upon layers of complexity in the recipe are to die for. We love the way it looks and we love the way it tastes even more. The nuts you choose can be flexible but if you can, the 3 choices including almonds, pecans, and walnuts work an absolute wonder. Most other nuts would work also. Have a play around if you feel comfortable.
