I added an beaten egg and this helped thicken it up a bit. Also left out the raisins. If I made this again I might add a bit more cocoa could use a bit more chocolate flavor. Read More

Pretty good -- a really nice change from plain old rice pudding. I left out the raisins and used short grain rice (short or medium grain rice always works best in rice pudding) and was quite pleased with the results. The double boiler part took 40 minutes for me. Will definitely make again. Read More

This is easy to make - I changed it a little since I already had prepared rice and no double boiler so it took longer but what a delicious end to leftover rice! Read More

I took advice from others and added a beaten egg and a little extra cocoa powder. I also didn't have a double boiler so I used a saucepan on low and it worked just fine and thickened up nicely. Left raisins out since my son doesn't like raisins (I do but I don't need to eat all 6 servings myself!) Definitely would make again next time I have leftover rice. (skipped the first step).

This was really good with a few changes: I used one one ounce square of bittersweet baking chocolate plus one T of cocoa to make it more chocolatey. I also added a beaten egg and served with whipped cream. Yum! Read More
