Nutella Rice Pudding

I am "going" on a picnic and I'm bringing Nutella Rice Pudding that begins with the letter N.

Louise, the author from Months of Edible Celebrations, introduced this on-line picnic called, The Picnic Game, and she is hosting each June, with the final round-up on 1st July. 

June 18th is International Picnic Day and Louise has invited us for a picnic game from 18th to 28th June. And for the first time, I'm "going" on a The Picnic Game with Louise and all the lovely ladies who has joined in the fun.  

The game is played by selecting a letter and you are supposed to make some food beginning from your chosen letter, to the picnic. The chosen letter will be confirmed and assigned to each person by Louise, like in my case, I chose the letter N, and it is for Nutella Rice Pudding. 

Each of us must list what the other persons before your letter are bringing! It is a fun on-line picnic game!

I have some Arborio rice left from making risotto.  Not enough for another round of risotto so I used the remaining rice to make Nutella Rice Pudding.

Personally I have never eaten a rice pudding so I am curious.  Nutella is my son's favorite and you will be appalled to see how much he slapped onto this bread.

This is very easy to put together, actually it is a bad idea to make something chocolaty during this period but my kiddos' body system are better than mine, they are able to take "heaty" food in this HOT climate.As for me, I just take a tiny weeny portion just to satisfy my curiosity.

What you need:

½ cup of Arborio rice
1 cups milk
½ tsp vanilla bean paste
1/8 cup castor sugar

100g Nutella


Heat milk on medium heat, add in castor sugar.  Stir until sugar dissolved and a rolling boil.

Add in vanilla bean paste.  Mix well.

Add in Arborio rice and cook until 15 - 20 min.  Keep stirring to prevent burning.  

Add in Nutella and stir until combined.

Scoop into serving cup and add a scoop of nutella onto it (optional).
