In Danish "Ris a lamande"
The Ris a lamande is a traditional Danish dessert you will find on the dinner table in almost every Danish home at Christmas eve.
The tradition is to hide 1 whole almond in the Ris a l'amande and whoever finds the almond receives an “almond gift” the almond gift is most commonly a box of chocolates or a marzipan pig, you can use anything as a gift.
In our family we have the tradition that the winner of the "almond gift" is bringing the gift the following year for Christmas.
If you are a lot of people you can make a bowl specially for the kids and another one for the adult, with a whole almond in each bowl and of cause one gift for the adults and one for the kids.

Bring the milk to the boil and add the rice while stirring.
Bring the rice back to boil while stirring, turn the heat down to minimum and boil for 50-60 min. with the lid on.
