Chocolate and Plum Rice Pudding

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.

Chocolate and Plum Rice Pudding

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.
