Tips & Gadgets: Refresh Stale Ice Cream Cones
Happy summer solstice! We are, appropriately, baking in heat as we welcome summer today. After a long, cold spring, the late-breaking warmth took us a little by surprise. I opened our box of ice cream cones and found only stale, slightly limp cones. Sad. Luckily, it's easy to crisp up a stale cone!
Here's what to do: Stand up your cones in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds on high. Let cool a few minutes, and they'll be nice and crisp again. They won't taste quite as good they did fresh, but your kids probably won't mind. Especially if you fill them with some of this or scoops of this. Enjoy!
