Toffee and Chocolate Rice Pudding

There is something so comforting about a warm bowl of rice pudding. My family loves it! They are perfectly happy with plain jane rice pudding, but sometimes I like to switch things up a little. I love toffee and chocolate, and figured they would be a great addition to rice pudding. So I tweaked my […]
