It’s so nice to have an easy dessert recipe literally, so easy a child could do it for those times when you want to focus your time and efforts on other things, but still have a little sweet tooth fix at the end of it all. This slow cooker rice pudding is perfect for those situations. If you’re busy doing something else, get the kids in the kitchen, measuring out ingredients and throwing it in the slow cooker. You can turn the heat on low, check on it halfway through (or have an older helper assist you with that) and call it a day! This dessert is sweet, creamy and comforting– a delicious way to end any meal!
