Yield: 5 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 \N Egg Whites
¾ cup Sugar
2½ cup Milk
3 \N Egg Yolks
⅓ cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
⅛ teaspoon Nutmeg

Lift out meringues with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Chill. Remove milk from heat; set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks until thickened and lemon-colored. Gradually add ⅓ cup sugar. Beat in cocoa and nutmeg. Strain milk from skillet into egg yolk mixture. Mix until blended. Pour blended mixture into skillet.
