grams arborio rice
milliliters fresh full fat milk
grams condensed milk
tablespoons white sugar
milliliters strong espresso
grams salted butter
teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
grams 70% dark chocolate, broken up
- Place the rice, milk, water, condensed milk and sugar and bring to a gentle boil over low heat, stirring to mix everything.
- Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring from time to time, especially at the end, to prevent burning.
- At 30 minutes, add the coffee, stir and cook for a couple more minutes, just to let the additional liquid dry up a little.
- Take off heat and add the chocolate pieces, butter and vanilla, stirring until the chocolate is completely melted and the consistency seizes up slightly from the chocolate (thickens).
