Chocolate Rice Pudding (Dairy-Free, Stovetop)

This chocolate rice pudding whips up quickly and is the perfect fall dessert -- especially when served warm! The chocolate flavour is mild; add more cocoa powder if you'd like more of a punch. I am particularly fond of the combination of cinnamon with chocolate, but feel free to leave it out if you're not a fan.

Ingredients:

- 1.5-2 cups cooked rice (mine was Chinese takeout leftovers)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1.5 Tbsp cocoa powder
- a pinch salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups almond milk
- optional: raisins, nuts, etc.

1. Put the rice into a large pot and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla.

3. While mixing, add the almond milk about 1/2 cup at a time, until combined.

4. Add the wet ingredients to the rice. Add raisins, nuts, etc. if desired. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, for 6-10 minutes until it reaches the desired thickness.

Serve warm. Or allow to cool and serve cold;it's your kitchen.
