Ready in


  • 1 bag Success® Brown Rice
  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, divided

Why Sweet and Savory?

Salt is a flavor enhancer, so when mixed with sugar the sweetness is not only complemented but also enriched. Chefs call this flavor layering because the salt and sugar meld together in your mouth without giving a specific taste, making each bite an incredible sensorial experience. There are infinite possible combinations of this delicious duo. Can’t get enough? Try these Pine Nut Strawberry Rice Bars
