Mom Shares Genius Ice Cream Hack for Eating It When Frozen Solid

We all scream for ice cream, but sometimes this is out of frustration.

Serving the delicious cold dessert can, at times, be tricky—either it is too frozen to scoop out or it looks messy on the plate after digging at the carton.

One woman on TikTok has recently demonstrated a method to enable you to serve neat and even portions of the chilly treat, and we cannot wait to try it.

Shannon Doherty, a mother of four known on the video-sharing app as @athomewithshannon, posted her creative hack for portioning out ice cream on May 4, with the caption: "*BEST HACK* for serving ICE CREAM!"

She then continued: "#momhack #icecreamhack #birthday #tipsandtricks #tiktokpartner #learnontiktok."

So, how does it work? In the video Doherty, who is standing in her kitchen wearing a pink long-sleeved top and pearly headband, holds a tub of Haagen-Dazs strawberry ice cream

The footage then cuts to the mom trying to dig into the carton with a spoon as the overlaid text reads: "Spend so much time trying to scoop out ice cream?"

Next, she stands the carton upside down and instructs viewers to "slice the carton in half" as she cuts down the middle.

Following this, she removes the outside cardboard, before cutting the dessert into crescent-shaped slices, adding: "So easy to slice now!"

The final shot shows Doherty and her young daughter grinning in front of purple sparkly plates of evenly portioned ice cream.

The footage has since been viewed more than 815,600 times and garnered over 49,900 likes.

Many took to the comments section to share their appreciation for the idea.

One TikTok user, Zodiac signs, wrote: "Omg why did I not think of this I'll have to try this."

Another, Fall3n_rose, added: "Ahhh!!!! This is so helpful. My daughter's birthday is tomorrow and I can't wait to use this hack!"

Elle Arredondo typed: "It's actually really good hack me and my brother just do it right now didn't beak the spoon or bend it."

And Dawn simply commented: "love this idea."

However, this is not the only fantastic household tip that Doherty has shared. Her account, which has over 23.4 million likes, is filled with tips and tricks for home life.

She recently demonstrated a method for organizing kitchen cupboards using a baking sheet, as well as hack for ensuring you pick the perfect avocado every time.
