Rice Pudding – Simple Sweet Treat

Rice pudding is a favorite in my household.

It’s one of those dishes that’s better when it’s made fresh at home, but if we don’t plan ahead, it’s never chilled when we’re ready to eat it!

This is  quick, easy rice pudding recipe I love that doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare, but it needs to cool and chill. If you make it in the morning or at lunch, you’ll have a tasty after-dinner dessert.

Careful – you might find yourself eating double-portions of this sweet treat!
