Zucchini and Onion Rice Bowl

So we all know, that when we order Chinese food, no matter what you order, they always give you a ton of rice. More rice than anyone can eat in one sitting, and today’s recipe  utilizes all that extra rice we have sitting in our fridge.

And like most of our recipes, the amount of zucchini, onions and rice is subject to change on how many people you plan on feeding. You can also make this with fresh rice, I did for lunch yesterday and it was delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 heaping tablespoons of Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Powder
  • 1 cup milk (depending on how many people you’re making it for, adjust the amount of milk)
  • 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Step 1: 

The first thing you want to do is place your milk on a stove in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.

Sift in the coco powder, and whisk until combined. For some reason, ours turned a weird gray color, but that didn’t take away from the taste.

Add the chocolate, vanilla extract, and a splash of heavy cream. Stir until the chocolate has melted.

Step 4: 

Pour the hot chocolate in your favorite mug and top with whipped cream. Enjoy!
