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!
