Nutella Rice Pudding

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day.  I don't buy into that whole "it has to be fancy and expensive to be romantic".  We had a nice evening at home with Blue Coast Burritos (my absolute favorite casual eating joint, of which I have been a HUGE fan of even before they went full-on franchising with it), a movie (Without Limits), and this delightfully easy yet sinfully good dessert.

Nutella Rice Pudding
1 2/3 C 1% milk
1/3 C heavy cream
1/4 C arborio rice
1/4 C Nutella
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Hazelnut liqueur

   Combine milks and rice in a sauce pan.  Bring to a bubble over med-hi heat.  Reduce heat to med-lo and simmer for 35-40 minutes, stirring regularly.
   When liquid is mostly absorbed into rice, and the rice is tender and cooked through, turn heat off.  Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
   Divide into two serving dishes, cover, and chill for at least 1 hour.  (This can even be made a couple days before, just make sure to lay plastic wrap directly on top of pudding to prevent condensation from dripping into it.)
   Serves 2.  Fresh strawberries are the perfect compliment to this.
