Return to saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture coats the back of the spoon. Refrigerate.

  • Preparation for the meringue

    Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and continue to mix until a bright and firm meringue. With the spatula, add the icing sugar by gently folding. Using a pastry bag or a spoon, fill meringue in buttered ramekins and bake in the steam oven or microwave until firm.

  • Preparation for the cocoa caramel

    Combine the water and sugar in a saucepot making sure not to let the sugar touch the sides.  Cook until lightly golden and then add the cocoa.  Set aside.

  • Plating

    In a plate, pour the crème anglaise. Add the cooked meringue clouds, cooled and well drained of excess liquid and drizzle with the cocoa caramel.
