CUSTARD
1-1/2 cups light cream
1-1/2 inch piece vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise or
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large egg yolk
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup granulated sugar
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 cup)

MERINGUE
3 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

Instructions
Make the Chocolate Custard: In a medium saucepan, scald cream with vanilla bean

In a small bowl, lightly beat egg yolks, with cornstarch until no lumps remain. Add sugar, then slowly whisk in 1 cup of the hot cream. Pour yolk-cream mixture back into the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not boil or the egg will curdle.

Transfer custard into a medium bowl and stir in chocolate chips until
melted. If you are using vanilla extract, stir it in with the chocolate
chips.
