Nutella Toasted Almond Rice Pudding

Fridge full of chinese food boxes of bland white rice from two nights ago??  Use them to make this delicious dessert!!

I created this recipe because our fridge was getting extremely cluttered after a group order of Chinese food.  Everyone was so stuffed from their meals that no one had room to eat the white rice sides. So... rice pudding!  I had some slivered almonds that I toasted to contrast the soft texture of the rice pudding.  The result is delicious: creamy, chocolatey and nutty.  And extremely budget friendly! Here's the recipe :)
