When I was writing my family cookery book I decided it would be a good idea to include a version of my Nan’s Rice Pudding. I made a decision to cook this in the slow cooker and it was so good. For a long while now I have been thinking about making a Chocolate Rice pudding. We all love chocolate and I thought it would be a great idea to make a chocolate pudding.
On a Sunday we normally have a roast dinner followed by a crumble but I felt it was time to change the menu. So I made an executive decision to make a pudding in the slow cooker while I was making the roast dinner. I put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and then went to cook the dinner. The pudding was cooked by the time I served the main dish. So I turned the cooker off and left it to cool while. Once we had eaten our dinner the pudding was cool enough to eat.

- Place the lid on the slow cooker and put the cooker on low for 2 – 3 hours.
- Once all the liquid has soaked into the rice it’s cooked.
- So give it a stir, then serve and enjoy.
Chocolate and Plum Rice Pudding was a delicious dessert that we all enjoyed. The pudding was creamy and smooth. The plums added a freshness and they took away the stodginess of the dark chocolate and rice. Unfortunately the pudding is not freezable but it’s a great slow cooker dish. It gives the cook lots of time to make and prepare the other dish/dishes. The pudding could be enjoyed with strawberries or any types of fruit you prefer. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy.
