Want to Prevent Ice Cream Cone Leaks? Try This Simple Trick!

With the hot summer approaching, it's very likely you'll be buying more frozen treats. If your kids are like mine, they love ice cream! What I don't love, however, is the sticky drips from their melting treat through the cone. I came up with a way to prevent the melted ice cream from becoming a big mess – on them and on the floor. Here's how:

Before scooping the ice cream into the sugar cone, stuff a miniature marshmallow into the bottom of the cone. This acts as a plug of sorts and keeps the drips inside the cone. Mom is happy, and the kids get an added treat at the end!
