How to Make Chocolate Cherry Rice Pudding

May 31, 2015

Chocolate cherry rice pudding is an easy dessert that puts store bought pudding cups to shame.  Arborio rice, a short grain Italian rice, is cooked in a chocolate milk mixture for 30 minutes until the rice is tender and the sauce has thickened.  Black cherries are added at the end for another dimension of flavor and toasted slivered almonds add crunch.  If you are making this dessert strictly for adults, you can mix in a splash of cherry liqueur.
