On a hot summer day, all you want is a heaping waffle cone filled with mint choco chip…that is, until your hand is covered in the sticky melted ice cream that’s dripped out the bottom. Here, an easy trick to prevent leakage when you’re making a cone at home.
What you need: Your favorite flavor, an ice-cream cone and a marshmallow.
What you do: Push the marshmallow into the bottom of the cone and scoop the ice cream on top. Voilà: no more leakage.
One of engineering’s greatest feats? Not quite. An easy way to elevate your summer treats? We’ll take it (with a side of sprinkles, obvi).
