Chocolate Coconut and Pecan Rice Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Sounds like a bit of a tongue twister doesn’t it? Well twist your tongue around this because it is absolutely to die for. Although I call it a rice pudding, it’s not very pudding-like, more just like rice. But still oh so amazing. The caramel sauce is an extra step and optional but it really makes it in the end. Good luck on not becoming too addicted to this stuff!

Rice Pudding

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1/4 cup pecans

1/4 cup loosely packed brown sugar

1/4 cup toasted coconut

1/4 tsp vanilla

Directions: Add all ingredients into a pot, mixing well. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover, cooking about 12 minutes or until rice is fully cooked through. Serve warm or cold, garnished with caramel, extra pecans, coconut and shaved chocolate.

Caramel Sauce (Optional)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp dairy free margarine

1/2 tsp vanilla
