My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Vat of Goodness


Vat of Goodness

We had a great and relaxing holiday weekend. Well, if you can call playing major rounds of Wii Sports and Mario Kart relaxing! My arm is still killing me from tennis.
Saturday I wanted to make some chocolate rice pudding. Remember how I was raving about Pudding On The Rice and that I love there chocolate and peanutbutter rice pudding? Well, I found their recipe online. So if you are ever in Utah valley, you must stop on in. If you are not (like most of you) not in that neighborhood I will give you the recipe.

Now, I was so excited to make this that I was totally not paying attention to the portions it was requiring. As I was making it, it just kept growing and growing! Luckily we had company over for Sunday dinner and then I took most of it over for our Memorial Day party. Even after 13 grown adults had healthy portions of this goodness, I still have a container of it in my fridge this morning.

So here is the recipe...that I have cut in half so you don't have rice pudding flowing out of your refridgerator!

Rice Pudding
4 cups of milk
2 cups cooked medium grain rice (I had jasmine rice on hand and it worked well. Just as long as it is not instant, I think anything will work)
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

In a large sauce pan stir together the first 4 ingredients over medium heat. In a seperate bowl crack 1 egg and let sit at room temperature. Set aside. Stir rice mixture slowly with large wooden spoon for 45-60 minutes until it has thickened evenly.

Take pan off the heat. Take the egg and whisk throughly adding 3 TBSP of mixture (one at a time) to tempure the egg. Slowly incorporate the egg back in to the pudding. Return the pudding to medium heat and slowyly stir as you bring the pudding back to a boil.

Put pudding in glass bowl and cover with saran wrap and cool in refrigerator for 6-24 hours.

Whip 2 cups of cream and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add whipped cream to pudding until well mixed.

Microwave 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips with 1/4 cup heavy cream until melted. About 1 minute total. Add into cooled pudding BEFORE adding whipping cream mixture. Stir until shiny. Then add in whipping cream. I sprinkled more chocolate chips on top!

Add a bag of frozen raspberries and mix into pudding fully incorporated. Then add in whipping cream.

Peanut Butter
Since there was not a recipe for peanut butter, I am guessing here. I wasn't thinking when I was making it to divide my recipe and make half chocolate/half peanut butter, but I think this would work well.
Microwave 3/4 cup peanut butter with 1/4 milk until melted. About 1-2 minutes. Stir into cooled pudding mixture. Then add in whipping cream.

I really hope that you try this. I was not a fan of rice pudding at all, but when you add chocolate to it, it becomes a whole new thing. I also made some other scrumptious things over the last couple of days, but I will share those recipes later. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I know we enjoyed ours!


  1. I have never had rice pudding but this looks pretty tasty!

  2. There are certain foods that just grosssssss me out! This is definitely one of them (along with tapioca.) Even just thinking about it is yucky. (Insert my mom saying I'm weird.)

  3. Hey, speaking of wii, I went down to play Carnival with Heber and your mii was on the Carnival game. I'm leaving it there to pretend you are playing with us.
