Trying to figure out how to make white chocolate taste like something beside vanilla...it's really a no go, but whatever. And just so you know, in my endeavor to make it taste like white chocolate, I used too much and the rice pudding wasn't as thick as it usually is. That being said, nothing wrong with experimenting in the kitchen. Basic recipe is from Ina Garten -
But I don't like rum raisin so I tried to figure other flavors - I like my macadamia nut and coconut recipe, but Paul doesn't like it, so I'm trying other flavors.
Here are the culprits...there was also supposed to be sugar in the pic...eh *shrug*
Cooking the rice for 8 minutes in just water and kosher salt, covered.
Getting the chocolate ready for the rice - the wet stuff is the vanilla paste.
Added the half-and-half to the rice - bring to boil then simmer uncovered 25 minutes.
Tempering the egg with some of the rice pudding.
Mixing the egg into the rice pudding and cooking for about a minute.
Mixing the rice pudding in with the milk chocolate chips.
Mixing the rice pudding in with the white chocolate chips. Used way too many chips.
Still tasted alright. I will try again :)
