A video posted to TikTok has been making headlines, and it might change the way you enjoy a classic summer treat.

The viral video features a McDonald's ice cream hack that seems perfectly designed for any season. TikTok user @sandraciresart uploaded a video of the creation, which is made by simply dunking a McDonald's vanilla ice cream cone into a large cup of Coca-Cola to make a "coke float."

The simple yet genius hack has received over 640,000 views and thousands of comments.

In the video, you can see the user take a cup and fill it about halfway with Coca-Cola from the soda machine, before dunking and swirling a vanilla ice cream cone into the drink to create a frothy treat that is half soda, half ice cream.

No word on what she did with the cone, but we're willing to bet some of the ice cream stuck around inside. We would suggest eating it solo, or breaking off some pieces for a crunchy topping to add to your float.

Despite what you might think, this isn't just an innovation by enterprising TikTok users. This combo is actually really well known in Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Colombia, where it's sometimes referred to as a vaca negra, or "black cow."

This ice cream cone hack seems particularly useful at fast food restaurants, where dessert menus can be pretty limited. The addition of Coke to your after-dinner meal creates a super refreshing treat, that has the feeling of dessert, even if you use a Diet Coke.

However you make it, you'd be wise to get your cup down to half-full before adding your ice cream. One person who didn't do this was TikTok user @saidaxnor who demonstrates what can happen if you try this hack with a full soda in a hilarious ice cream float fail video.

In the comments, other users also suggest skipping the ice, which will make it easier to mix your float together.

This ice cream float hack works well with other sodas too, and TikTok users have been sharing videos of floats made with everything from Sprite, to root beer, to sweet tea. Maybe we'll try this float with coffee, creating our own fast food version of the Italian dessert affogato.

And did you know you can also create your own ice cream sandwich using McDonald's soft serve?

Dubbed the McIce Cream Sandwich by Foodbeast, this dessert creation combines McDonald's chocolate chip cookies and vanilla soft serve to create a fast food version of the Chipwich.

We would recommend getting your ice cream in a cup instead of a cone for this hack, and using the spoon to help spread it between the two cookies. Be sure to allow your cookies time to cool before sandwiching the ice cream, as this hack will be messy enough without speeding up the window of time you have before your treat begins to melt.

If you're kind of shocked McDonald's didn't think of adding an ice cream float to their menu years ago, well, they kind of did. In 2016, the fast food chain tested a Dr. Pepper-based ice cream float at select locations in New York and Seattle.

The menu item, named the McFloat, had already been widely available internationally, and is still to this day a hugely popular item in many countries, reportedly being most popular in India, the Philippines, and Indonesia. It's also available in a wide variety of flavors around the world like Coke, Green Apple Sprite, and Iced Coffee.

Why didn't the McFloat ever get a wider release? Well, we're really not sure. But if McDonald's is paying attention to how much people love the idea, maybe next summer, they'll change their minds.
