The Real Chicago Winter Dessert

Chi Town doesn't care if you spent 2 hours flat ironing your hair. It doesn't care if your snow brush is still in the garage and not in the back seat. It doesn't care that no one predicted snow for the day. It doesn't care if you have to schlep a bass across the quad. Can you hear it laughing at you? But, come on, you know you love it! It builds character! And it really is pretty. I happen to think it is best to watch from the window with a warm treat.

Chocolate Rice Dessert

6 cups Silk Very Vanilla Soymilk
1 cup long grain rice (NOT quick cooking)
Dash of salt
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

In 5 qt pot, heat the milk over medium heat.  Add the salt and rice.  Stir over medium low heat until thick and the rice is tender (approx 1 hour).

Remove from heat and add the cocoa powder and chocolate chips.  Stir until chocolate is melted and combined.

Serve warm.  Cool completely before refrigeration.
