Canned Frosting Fudge

I'm not sure this even qualifies as "cooking!" I've been looking for a super-simple, Christmas-present-for-the-relatives project for some very young children that produces results fast enough to hold their attention, and I'm coming across recipes for fudge made from prepared frosting -- the stuff in the plastic tub. Supposedly, 90 seconds in the microwave melts / cooks it enough to stiffen it; then you mix in nuts or whatever (the kids can to that part!), pour into a buttered or foil-lined pan (suggestions were to reuse the rectangular plastic containers that some brands of presliced deli meat come in -- they look like Gladlock containers) and decorate the lid with stickers (again with the kiddies). Now then, has anyone attempted this? The nuked frosting, I mean, not the decorating-deli-containers bit. Does anyone know if this actually works or am I risking frosting boiling over in my microwave?
