Champagne and White Chocolate Rice Pudding

Champagne White Chocolate Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is typically a homey, cozy sweater, and boyfriend jeans kind of dessert.  However, when you add champagne and white chocolate, rice pudding glams up and becomes a glitzy New Year’s Eve treat.  White chocolate is the predominant flavor in this rice pudding with a subtle champagne taste that comes through at the end of each spoonful.  You can add other spices to your taste, such as vanilla, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

To prepare champagne and white chocolate rice pudding, I used a slightly adapted recipe for white chocolate rice pudding that I found on Serious Eats (originally from Southern Living: Classic Southern Desserts).  In my version, I cook the rice in champagne instead of water (lucky rice!).

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups champagne the cheap stuff is fine
  • 3/4 cup medium-grain rice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups 1 quart half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate morsels

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan, bring champage and rice to a boil.
  • Cover and reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Simmer for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Warning: The champagne will bubble like crazy! It looks like you are cooking soap bubbles. This is normal.
  • With heat still on medium-low, add sugar, half and half, and salt.
  • Stirring often, cook for thirty minutes or until rice pudding reaches desired thickness (I like mine to have the thickness of a bowl of oatmeal).
  • Add white chocolate and stir until melted.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate and reheat before serving.

Notes

Optionally, top rice pudding with cinnamon, nutmeg, or nuts.

  1. Sylviasays:

    Wonder if the white chocolate and caviar combo would work here, too?

  2. Hi, in your “Champagne and White Chocolate Rice Pudding” recipe you have in your list of ingredients “4 cups (1 quart) half and half”. I am from Colombia, South America, and I could`t know what is this about. Maybe milk? Thanks in advance for your help.

  3. I mean “I couldn’t know”
