1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. baking cocoa
2 eggs, separated
2 T. butter, melted

Heat milk in a large saucepan just until tiny bubbles form; remove from heat. Cube bread and add to milk; stir until smooth. Add sugar, cocoa and egg yolks; stir until well blended. Add butter and vanilla; set aside. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into mixture along with chocolate chunks. Pour into 6 lightly greased custard cups; set cups in a larger pan filled with one inch of hot water. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until firm.
