simple, but good
The weather has been quite cold over the past couple of days. I wanted to make a warm treat, but something not too sweet...
Last Halloween, I tried making Pierre Herme's version of it. And while going through the blogs that I read daily, I have also been seeing posts about rice pudding, especially here and here.
For our dessert last night, I decided to make a "new" version and top it with the chocaviar that I just bought.
I used part of Cream Puffs' recipe, but I didn't put the second addition of butter or sugar. I also added a little cinnamon, cardamom and allspice at the end. Topping it with the chocaviar was a good idea, the bitterness from the chocolate brought the sweetness down. Plus, stirring it into the warm pudding, the chocolatey aroma mixed with the spices and it was heavenly!
Very simple, but oh so good! I think the next time, I want to add some nuts and dried fruits.
Hope you have a great week!
