White Chocolate Rice Pudding

Contrary to public opinion, my most favorite dessert isn't pie...it's rice or bread pudding. This scrumptious rice pudding is so incredible I may want to celebrate my birthday every day.

  1. I followed Anne in CA's recipe, except I used 8 chopped maraschino cherries, instead of 4, as she did.

    This is my dessert for Easter . . . . For anyone that likes chocolate . . . this one's a keeper.-Originally posted on the Healthy Exchanges message board, recorded on Judy's List of Favorites website.

  2. I had an urge for rice pudding yesterday, and made [this]. The ingredients included pecans, which I didn't have, and anyway I didn't feel like nuts. So I substituted 4 chopped maraschino cherries, and lo and behold, the pudding ended up tasting like chocolate covered cherries. And just in time for Valentines! Since I LOVE chocolate covered cherries, I was very happy!-Originally posted on the Healthy Exchanges Message board, recorded on Judy's List of Favorites website.

  3. Do you use real rice or minute rice? I've tried a few of the recipes that call for minute rice, and I just don't like the texture.-Originally posted on Healthy Exchanges message board, recorded on Judy's List of Favorites website.

  4. For recipes that call for cooked rice, I generally use the regular rice. When I make up rice, I make a cup or two extra and keep it in the fridge. I just pull it out when I make something that calls for cold cooked rice. When a recipe specifically calls for minute rice, I go ahead and use it, because regular rice would change the cooking times.-Originally posted on Healthy Exchanges message board, recorded on Judy's List of Favorites website.
