Martha Stewart Living, June 2008

Use this trick to keep ice cream from dripping out of the bottom of a cone: Drop in a mini marshmallow or two before you add your scoops.

    Even better, microwave the marshmallow for 7 seconds then pop it in the bottom of the cone. It will take the shape of the cone preventing drips and be yummy as well!

    Vegetarians cannot eat marshmallows because of the gelatin. So a gum drop (make sure there is no gelatin in it either) would do the trick and add a nice sweet treat at the end.

    Such a simple but effective tip - why have I never thought of this. And marshmallows are surprisingly low in calories and usually have no preservatives to make kids hyper. One or two minis have very little sugar. This is a wonderful tip.

    For an extra treat, if kids are chocolate lovers, dip marshmallows in melted chocolate or use melted chocolate in bottom of cone
