I must be out of my mind. I have posted every day this week. That’s a lot of work!

But, I couldn’t resist – I had to post on Fat Tuesday and on Valentine’s Day. Those days are a must. I also had to tell you about my Oprah feature. At least you got Lemon Crepes with Raspberry Sauce and a Strawberry and Cream 3-minute Mug Cake out of it, right? Right. And today you will get rice pudding. Win, win. 😉

Lately I have been on this quick-desserts kick. And almost all of them have involved chocolate. Quick Cherry and Chocolate Cake, anyone? Some things I make for the love of others and some things I make for the love of my me-time. The quicker the dessert, the more time I get to spend with you, and with my favorite blogs. Oh! And with my kids!! 😉

Couple of facts about this quick rice pudding.

This treat was for my dad. I have been making rice pudding since I was 12 years old, and he taught me how to make it. Plain, white rice pudding with a sprinkle of cinnamon was his specialty. It was good for a while, but I got tired of it. Years later I started developing my own versions of rice pudding.

Of all the versions I have made, Instant Chocolate Mocha Rice Pudding is my dad’s favorite. Sweet, silky, and chocolaty – it almost tastes like you are eating a textured chocolate bar.

If feeling tired, bored, cold, strapped for time, and ready to eat that entire bag of chocolate chips, might I suggest making this rice pudding and calling it a day? It’s warm and cozy and quick.

  1. What if I tried this brown rice I have that’s already cooked, skim milk, bittersweet chocolate squares, and no instant coffee (we never use that stuff at our house, so I don’t have any, and don’t want to buy a jar, because the rest of will most probably go to waste and I don’t like wasting food if I can avoid it), and olive oil in place of butter (I don’t keep butter at home either, I prefer to keep oils, because of the saturated fat content of solid fats) ?

      Yes, that will work. I know the taste will be different, but I’m sure it will be just as delicious. Let me know how it is…I’d like to try your version, too!! 🙂
