Fancy Dipped Strawberries

My 9 year old was bored yesterday so she decided to follow a recipe in her Kid's Cookbook and make these.  It uses canned frosting instead of having to melt chocolate chips or other dipping chocolate, which can be easy to scorch if you aren't paying attention.  The only help I offered was getting out the waxed paper and putting the finished pan in the fridge.  I have quite a little chef in my house!

Fancy Dipped Strawberries

1 lb. strawberries,washed and pat dry with paper towels
1 c. ready to spread frosting (chocolate or vanilla)
chopped nuts
miniature chocolate chips
coconut, etc.

1. Place desired toppings in small custard cups or bowls.
2. Melt frosting in a glass bowl in the microwave for 15-20 seconds or until melted.  Stir.
3.  Holding strawberries by the stems, dip each strawberry into the melted frosting.  Right away, dip the strawberry into one of the toppings.  Place on waxed-paper lined baking sheet.
4.  Place baking sheet into the fridge for 5 minutes or until the frosting has hardened.
