  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Use the wooden spoon to combine the cocoa powder, brown sugar, and salt in the mixing bowl. Add a splash or two of the milk of about 1⁄4 cup. Whisk until smooth.

  3. Crack the eggs into the mixing bowl and discard the shells. Add the vanilla and the rest of the milk to the bowl. Whisk to combine.

  4. Stir the rice and the cherries into the mixture with a wooden spoon. Transfer the pudding to the baking dish or ramekins.
