    I like the idea….but wouldn’t it go bad? Or get moldy if not eaten immediately???? And yeah that is a lot of food to make!

    I like the idea … but for me, it’s hard to make something really yummy in huge portions … even cupcakes. I cannot take it and end up giving up after the 2nd tray because I’m too tired.

    Also, I agree that they may not keep.

    Maybe something else like a little jar with some rice in it and the recipe???

    Mmm, it does sound delicious! But ejs makes a good point: Can this stuff go bad? Will it be hard to transport if you don’t eat it all right away? Will guests flying in for the wedding (if any are) be forced to eat it before getting on the plane because of the liquid restrictions, or else throw it out?

    Maybe if you don’t do it as a favor, you could serve it as a late-night dessert for everyone!

    I think it sounds like a good idea but I like the idea of having jars of rice with the recipe or having it as a dessert later on in the night better than giving the actual rice pudding as a favor. I would be a little iffy on whether or not it would keep and whatnot.

    Ok, so too funny. I was like “what is arroz con leche” then looked it up and realized i ate this ALL THE TIME as a child, hot or cold. I guess I never knew that’s what it really was. Nummy

    I still don’t know how I’d feel about taking this as a homemade gift though. I mean, it IS milk and rice, and even milk heated….set out….I don’t like that idea. Sounds like people woudl throw it out for fear of getting sick

    I do like the serve it as a snack idea! Or a favor….

    I love the idea… and now want rice pudding.  I think it’ll look so cute too, maybe you could make or purchase custome labels.  And if you make it yourself, which would be a huge endeavor, it’d make it so reasonably priced.

    I voted to do it but then read the comments and think the rice with the recipe is the best route to go!

    I like the idea of doing the favor with rice and the recipe in a mason jar.

    I vote rice with recipe in the jar AND serve arroz con leche at the reception!

    I know I would worry about eating it if the jars of arroz con leche had been sitting out unrefrigerated.
