5 Ice Cream Hacks That'll Make Summer More Bearable
The #SummerStruggle is real. Here’s your S.O.S.
(SPOT.ph) Summer means only one thing: Time to dig into a tasty tub of ice cream! The sweltering Manila heat is the perfect excuse to indulge in a snack that’s guaranteed to cool you down. Consider these hacks to level up your dessert game:
Hack no. 1: This is the easiest way to scoop rock-solid ice cream.
Is your ice cream...well, tough as ice? A warm ice-cream scooper or knife is all you need. Run a knife under warm water for a few seconds, then cut a checkerboard pattern across the tub to make each scoop a breeze. You can also do the same with an ice cream scooper for easy-peasy scooping action.
Hack no. 2: Say goodbye to messy cones.
For some, it’s really the cone that seals the deal—but things can get really messy if you’re eating out of a wafer, waffle, or sugar cone. Here’s a trick to make sure your ice cream doesn’t end up all over your hands: Just put a small marshmallow inside the cone to keep melted ice cream from dripping out.
Hack no. 3: It's more fun when it's in a bun.
When you want to satisfy your ice-cream-sandwich craving, stuff your favorite ice cream into a warm pan de sal or a buttery brioche bun. It sounds sinful, but trust us—it’s worth it.
Hack no. 4: Ice-cream-stuffed donuts, anyone?
If you love donuts as much as Homer Simpson does, this ice-cream hack should be at the top of your list. Whether you choose vanilla, strawberry, cookies and cream or any other mouthwatering flavor to fill this bready delight, we’re sure it won’t be your last.
Hack no. 5: Mix and match different flavors.
We’ve all been there: You’re waiting in line at an ice-cream shop and you can’t decide which flavors to get (because you’d probably get all of them if there weren’t other people around to judge you). Baskin-Robbins is a judge-free zone where you can come up with fun flavor combinations to suit your taste. Whether it’s a scoop of Mint Chocolate Chip, Jamoca Almond Fudge, Rainbow Sherbet, or some other sweet pairings, you’re sure to find something that will keep your head cool and your tummy happy.
