Fuel for the Fourth!

I've had this clipping for over 10 years. It's from FAMILY FUN magazine (no date is on it).
It's one of those "so easy, takes no time, and the result makes you look like a pro" kind of recipes. This is all you need:
Tear off a piece of parchment. If it's curly, fold it diagonally to get it to lay flat.
Wash and dry the berries. They need to be really dry. 
Here I've transferred them to 3 different paper towels to dry. 
Melt about a 1/2 cup of chips in a little cup for 30 seconds on high. Stir. Give it another 15 if needed.
Dipping really doesn't work. It's easier to spread it on with a mini knife.
Hold the berry over a bowl to catch the sugar drippings.
Transfer to the parchment.
When dry, transfer to a pretty plate.
