Here’s How to Stop An Ice Cream Cone from Dripping

No more stickiness

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. How does one stop ice cream cone from dripping? Here, an easy trick to prevent leakage when you’re making a cone at home. 

Step 1: Gather your ingredients.

You'll need your favorite flavor of ice-cream, a cone and a marshmallow.

Step 2: Push the marshmallow into the bottom of the cone.

This will act as a barrier once your ice cream begins to melt.

Step 3: 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).
