Here’s the good thing about ice cream: it’s usually frozen. Because, c’mon, nobody really likes soupy ice cream, do they? Even if it’s the most luxurious of flavours, if it’s not frozen solid, chances are it just doesn’t quite hit the spot.
Now here’s the bad thing about ice cream: it’s usually frozen. Which makes it incredibly difficult to scoop out when you are ready to indulge in some. Sure you could leave it on the counter to soften up. But the temptation. Oh! The agony of just waiting, watching it slowly thaw, minute by painful minute. And if you decide you just can’t wait (and who can blame you, really) and you jump in with the scoop, the only thing you’ll actually get is a pathetic little curl of cream and a sore hand from trying.
Fortunately, there is a solution to coax out that ice cream while still frozen. All you need is a knife, ot water, and that darn scoop (don’t worry, now it’ll be your friend). Check out exactly how it’s done in the video above, and the sooner you do, the sooner you’ll get to that giant bowl of happiness.
