I think you just have it spelled the wrong way.
Here is a recipe for Chocolate Blamange
Ingredients for Blancmange

3 tablespoons sugar or honey
White of 2 eggs
A few grains of salt
Put the milk into a double boiler, and when it is boiling hot, add the sugar.
Blend the cornstarch with a little cold milk, and pour gradually into the hot milk, stirring constantly.
Cover, and let cook 15 minutes over a good fire.
Add a sprinkle of salt to the whites, and beat them stiff.
Flavor with vanilla and over these pour the hot mixture gradually, and fold together.

Boy, this brings back memories! The excuses my siblings and I would come up with not to eat it. Was a dessert (pudding) growing up in England. Believe spelling is Blancmange, (with the accent & dialects, could sound like blumonge) a vanilla & gelatin base, with very hot(scalding) milk. Hopefully, you can find recipe on line. Enjoy! me, I can still taste it. Ha ha.
I remember from the book "Little Women" that they made something called Blanc mange, it is probably a French recipe. I wonder if this is the name of this dessert. Good luck!

Try re-spelling it. My mom was from England and she used to make it for us. We lost her last October but she left so many recipes and so much love behind. I think is is blacmange
