Arborio Rice Pudding


I've never really been a rice pudding kind of gal but part of the fun of being part of a group like TWD is trying stuff that you wouldn't normally otherwise make. Besides, the recipe looked really easy and I had all the ingredients to hand.

Now whenever a recipe has a chocolate option, you can be sure I'm going to take that! So this time, I chose to make both the white and the black version. I placed them in these tiny glasses that I picked up recently at a cooking school here in London and they made perfect "bite-sized" desserts for after dinner.

The verdict? Well, I'm not exactly a convert to rice pudding but I must say these were pretty good and I'm glad that I gave it a chance.

Cute glasses, how small are they? I am with you, glad I learned how but still not a convert. Your chocolate is so much darker than mine, what did you use because I want that.

The glasses are very cute. I havent had time to do the pudding yet but as soon as I usher the kids off to school, I will try it. Never eaten it before but yours looks delish.

Superb! I love those little "verrines"!!! So delicate... just like the rice pudding they treasure, I presume!

What great glasses! And at least you liked (if not loved) it. We were fans, and I'll be making more to use up the whole milk.

Definitely the right size for a non-rice pudding lover. Too cute. Even though you weren't a total convert, I'd consider it a success :)
