Because it resurfaced to the top of the swap, I tried Dawn_MO's dark chocolate blueberries - ?

I was wondering, did you use semi-sweet chips, or coating wafers? I melted a package of "morsels" in a double boiiler, so they wouldn't scorch, and since I didn't add any milk or any other liquid (as Dawn said not to), the chips never became runny enough to coat the berries... what the heck could I have possibly done wrong here?
I got a mudpie-like consistency (I was expecting smoother, runnier chocolate) and at first I added a few berries, but not wanting to crush them to bits, I decided to spoon out little inch-wide "piles"(??) of melted chocolate and just place the berries on top.
They're good, but I suspect are much different from what everyone else who made them ended up with. Did I miss a step? Maybe it's "karma" telling me not to eat chocolate!
How did the fool *get* his money?!

- Dawn, I usually add about a T of shortening to a bag of chips when melting. It seems to make them - AngAk - 6:29pm on 08/07/09

- In general, chips don't melt as well because they don't contain as much cocoa butter as [LINK] - Pat-NoCal - 1:44pm on 08/09/09
