Chocolate and Rice sounds like a very unusual combination doesn’t it? When I heard about the traditional Filipino ‘champorado’ or tsampurado [chocolate rice pudding], I was really intrigued.

I did something similar to get a lovely crisp coat on my cheese cubes. Guess what, it totally worked and there was hardly any mess.
