How to Make Salted Caramel Rice Pudding

It’s delicious, it’s decadent, and best of all, it’s easy.

We’re even going to make it from scratch.

Let’s make Salted Caramel Rice Pudding.

Salted Caramel Rice Pudding

In a large saucepan make the rice pudding.

First put 3/4 cup arborio rice in the pan.

Whisk together 3 cups milk, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Pour over rice.

Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.

Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer 20 to 30 minutes until rice is cooked and absorbed most of the liquid, leaving a creamy sauce.

Meanwhile, make the salted caramel sauce.

In a medium-size saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 cup sugar.

Stir constantly with a rubber spatula, scrapping the sides as you go.

Once the sugar melts and turns a golden brown, add in 6 tablespoons butter, diced, until melted.

Pour in 1/2 cup heavy cream and bring to a simmer, without increasing the heat.

Then serve, eat, and enjoy!
