Slow cooker chocolate rice pudding

This indulgent and comforting rice pudding is one of the easiest puddings you can make in your slow cooker. Just give the occasional stir and a couple of hours later you are ready to serve! This recipe uses medium-grain Arborio rice which gives the pudding its wonderfully creamy consistency.

Transfer the rice to your slow cooker and add the milk and sugar, stirring to combine

Step 3

Cover with the lid and cook on high for about 1 and half to 2 hours - it will depend on your individual slow cooker. Stir occasionally, until rice is cooked and creamy and most of the milk is absorbed.

If you don't have a slow cooker, you can cook the rice pudding in the oven on 150C/fan 130C/gas 2 for 2 hours.

Step 4

Stir in the chocolate and vanilla, so that the chocolate melts

Step 5

Serve immediately, topped with a few fresh raspberries and drizzled with a little double cream
