I used brown balsmati rice to make mine and it worked well. Love the flavor of the chocolate. Served with a huge dollop of whipped cream for a tasty treat. Thanks for sharing with us!

So simple, yet soooo good! My dad used to make this all the time and I always wondered how he made it. I never knew he only used 4 ingredients. I use sugar only to taste (so as not to make it too sweet), and I added some milk into the pot near the end to make it even creamier. Yummy! Perfect for those chilly Fall days and cold Winter nights :)

Thanks. My lolo used to make this for me when I was a little girl, and my mother made it for my daughter. Now we can pass on this wonderful Filipino tradition. SALAMAT!

Delicious and fudgy! We served this with some cream, as we had it on hand. Couldn't find sweet rice anywhere, so used jasmine rice for good effect.

Great!My mom is from Manilla and she makes it just like this only we top it with evaporated milk instead of condensed which adds to the richness but not the sweetness of the dessert.

Just like my Lola used to make!!! With my particular choice in diet, I reduce the amount of cocoa and sugar and sub sweetened condensed milk for heavy cream. SALAMAT!

This reminds me of the chocolate Farina I like to make sometimes, only this is much more chocolatey. My boyfriend is part Filipino, so I made some of this for him and he also liked it. It's even better with the peanut butter, and we think Nutella would also work well. By the way, I had a hard time finding sweet rice. I ended up getting it in the Japanese section of Stop & Shop; it's also called sushi rice.
