Seduced by Chocolate!

Dessert, Uncategorized | February 5, 2011 | By

It’s time for another Forever Nigella challenge over at

Now Nigella has many delicious chocolate creations in her cook books, but I didn’t want to make a big cake or a pile of cookies because you know what would have happened…yes, I would have eaten them all.  So I thought I’d see if I could find something that could be made on a fairly small scale, maybe a dessert that could be shared but not sitting there tempting me all week!

So here it is, Chocolate Rice Pudding
This recipe is in Nigella’s Feast book but as I made some alterations by using double cream (it needed used up) and the white chocolate which was also left over from another recipe, so I can post the amended recipe.
Chocolate Rice Pudding (serves 2)
butter for greasing the pudding dishes
1 tablespoon of cocoa
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon boiling water
100ml double cream
150ml milk
2 tablespoons pudding rice
50g good quality white chocolate, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon caster sugar
Preheat the oven to gas mark 2/150c.  Put the baking sheet in the oven to warm as it heats.  Grease two 150ml pudding bowls or ramekins.
Put the cocoa into a small measuring jug and dissolve with the boiling water then pour in the milk, stirring.  Divide between the buttered dishes.  Add 1 tablespoon of rice and divide the tablespoon of sugar between the dishes, stir.  Add the chopped chocolate and put them on the baking tray in the oven for 30-40 minutes.  Let stand for a while before serving.
It doesn’t look particularly pretty when it comes out of the oven but it is really delicious, and not oversweet even with the white choc included.
Do you want to see?  Really?  It might put you off!
Okay you asked for it…not a pretty sight, lol!

Oh my
I am visiting you hungry Janice and am a huge fan of chocolate your pudding looks divine!
Happy Weekend!


I've never tried a rice pudding … to be honest I'm not the biggest fan of rice pudding but I reckon a chocolate version would maybe help change my stance on the subject ;0)

Ah it may not look pretty but chocolate is a sure fire way to make a rice pudding even more comforting!

Oh, I must try this sometime. Steve won't eat my normal rice pudding but if there is a way to guarantee he will scoff it, this is it.

Might not be the prettiest dish ever but I'd say it tasted out of this world!!

My husband would love this, and so would I come to think of it!

Not pretty, but FABULOUS-looking!! Nigella knows chocolate!


Janice, sometimes the best tasting food is hard to photograph. What's important is the taste test. You passed that with flying colors. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary


I'm sure it's delicious Janice, despite that last pic hee hee! I'm going to dig out my Nigella book tonight, I want to join in the challenge this month!

I'm so glad you included that picture! Thanks for reminding me about this Nigella recipe. It's the only way I'm going to get my children to eat rice pudding.


I've made chocolate rice pudding before and the photos were pretty off-putting, thankfully like yours it tasted great and was all eaten!! šŸ™‚

I love how dark yours looks mmm!
