Preheat oven to 225ºF. Place egg whites in a bowl, allow to come to room temperature. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add sugar to the bowl, continue to whip or whisk until meringue is light and fluffy, and firm peaks form. Transfer to an OodleTips icing bag. Snip the tip creating a large opening. Pipe meringue mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until cookies are set and dry. Remove from oven, allow to air dry for 1 hour. Gently remove cookies from parchment. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter together, stirring until smooth. Spoon a dollop of chocolate on the bottom of one meringue, place a second meringue on the other side, creating little meringue sandwiches. Place on a piece of parchment. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.
