almond butter chocolate rice pudding recipe

Last week I was craving pudding. Do you ever crave pudding?

In fact, not just one kind of pudding I was wanting warm tapioca pudding with fresh cold cream poured over top, I wanted cold tapioca pudding with layers of mango curd in a parfait glass and I also wanted a rich chocolate rice pudding using the leftover rice in my freezer.

Yep, pudding was the theme for a week in my house.

Today I am going to share a recipe for using that leftover cooked rice you have in your freezer. Normally I will make fried rice with it, but today it was about a rich chocolate dessert.

This dessert is so good and so rich I would gladly serve it when entertaining guests.
I’d even serve this chocolate rice pudding in small fancy glasses and have it on my dessert table this Easter.
