Banana Rice Pudding Treats

These bite-size treats are made with a dollop of perfumy jasmine rice set upon a vanilla cookie-crumb base that is coated with chocolate.

  • Yield: Makes 16

  • 1 1/4 cups jasmine rice
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 banana, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup vanilla wafers
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted


  1. Line a 2-inch muffin tin with paper liners. Combine rice, milk, vanilla bean and scrapings, and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender and most but not all of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes.

  2. Add banana and sugar; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Stir in egg yolk and 4 tablespoons butter. Transfer to a large bowl; discard vanilla bean. Cover with plastic; refrigerate 2 hours or up to 2 days.

  3. Meanwhile, pulse vanilla wafers in a food processor, and transfer to a small bowl. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and toss well. Press 1 teaspoon mixture into each prepared muffin cup. Pour on chocolate to cover; refrigerate 30 minutes.

  4. Remove cookie-crumb crusts from liners, and place on serving plates. Top each with 1 tablespoon pudding, and serve.
