At almost any given moment you can open my refrigerator and find plain cooked rice. I bet that is true in many gluten free homes and not just mine too. I was in need of something creamy, warm, and chocolaty plus I needed to use up some cooked rice. This dessert is so good both warm and chilled. Plus it is super simple to make taking about 30 minutes total!
