3. The best way to make sure your ice cream doesn’t get too hard? Keep your freezer at the right temperature. Also, I’ve found that Blue Bunny ice cream stays soft better than most brands, because it’s in a plastic container rather than a cardboard one. As a bonus, the container also doesn’t get deformed, and the lid always fits (and stays on). 5. Good idea in theory but most of my family’s ornaments aren’t the right size or shape for that. 10. I’m not sure how I feel about the idea of adding frozen whipped cream to hot chocolate. At first I was like, “Hey, that sounds great!” but then it occurred to me I prefer my hot chocolate to stay hot. 15. I have to admit, that’s pretty neat (if a bit of work). And I love Almond M&Ms! 18. Reminds me of one of the Little House books when they drizzle maple syrup on snow until it hardens, and then eat (the syrup, not the snow). I always wanted to try that. 36. How is that a Christmas hack? That’s…that’s just how you make cookies.
