Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup uncooked, medium-grain rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cans (12 fluid ounces each) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg, beaten in small bowl
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Fun Size NESTLÉ CRUNCH, BUTTERFINGER and/or BABY RUTH Candy Bars, chopped (optional)

Directions

COMBINE water, rice and salt in medium, heavy-duty saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Cook for 10 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed.

ADD evaporated milk, sugar and cinnamon; stir well. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes or until creamy. Stir a small portion of rice mixture into egg; add back to the rice mixture and mix well. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Stir in vanilla extract.

We have made this for years now as a breakfast meal in the winter. We boil with 3 cinn.sticks instead of the ground cinn. It's awesome
