Champorado (Chocolate rice)
Champorado is a favorite comfort food. It is essentially a combination of glutinous rice and chocolate. When I was a child, this was one of my favorite breakfast recipes especially on cold and rainy days. I guess everyone grew up with champorado. Locals in the Philippines often use cacao which is a native chocolate. Today, however, many use cocoa powder or other forms of chocolate powder. This delicious recipe can be made tastier by adding milk or an alternative cream over the top.
- 1 cup glutinous rice malagkit or cooked rice

- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 small can evaporated milk or fresh milk
