These Dulce De Leche Rice Treats are a luscious, soft and sticky dessert that is super easy to make.
Hello, everyone! I hope you’re doing well. Please grab a seat and enjoy these Dulce De Leche Rice Treats. I am doing fine -thanks for asking! But before we enjoy some dessert, let me give you a quick update on my life :)
First of all, we had our well drilled, or extended to be accurate. That’s good news. However, as a result, we (But mostly I haha) needed to remove lots of heavy and liquidy dirt or clay (Or whatever it was!), and small stones around the well. Almost two hours of shovelling and “driving” a heavy trolley. Nope, I am not complaining (Excellent exercise considering closed gyms!) -I am giving you an excuse to keep it short.
Secondly, I am officially done with photos taken in our old apartment. Starting from today, all my new recipes as well as updating old recipes were shot in our house. So, you can now judge my new lighting :)
Lastly, I am going to share a lot, and I MEAN THAT, recipes with dulce de Leche. While I am not really upset or feel anxious about the current situation (That’s a temporary thing that will settle soon), when Nova Scotia adopted restrictions, I decided it absolutely crucial to indulge yourself. My indulgent was deemed dulce de leche. For a month, I’ve been making at least one (sometimes two) desserts with dulce de leche. That’saprt from the fact I grab a spoon or two straight from the jar once in a while. Surprisingly, I didn’t put any weight even though I cook quite often. That’s about moderation throughout the “business” week and lots of walking. (Luckily, we have a trail near our new house.) Anyway, the bottom like that it’s important to treat yourself – just to keep your sanity.
These Dulce De Leche Rice Treats are perfect for this purpose. They’re easy to make with just a few ingredients. If you don’t have dulce de leche but have a jar of condensed milk – make it at home. Lazy? Use condensed milk but cook the mixture 5-10 minutes longer (stirring), and it will resemble caramel. These treats are soft, sticky, and just slightly chewy as there are no marshmallows. They’re better to eat with a spoon or fork! If you wish they resemble those chewy and sliceable rice squares, just add a handful of small or 3-4 large marshmallows at the end, and let them melt, stirring occasionally. Don’t have/like puffed rice? Take puffed wheat of quinoa!
Either way, soft or chewy and crisp, with rice or wheat, this is a delicious dessert. Please, friends, make these
Dulce De Leche Rice Treats -indulge yourself!
