1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
5 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300º.  Cover 2 large baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper secured with masking tape.  Sift together 1/2 cup powdered sugar and cocoa.  Place egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form.  Gradually add sugar and then cocoa mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.  Add vanilla, beat until combined.  Fold in mini chocolate chips.

Drop dough with small scoop onto prepared baking sheets to form 36 mounds.  Bake for 30 minutes, rotating racks after 15 minutes.  Turn oven off, cool meringues in closed oven 1½ hours or until dry.  Sprinkle evenly with powdered sugar.  Carefully remove cookies from sheets.
