Let's get down to how to make homemade frosty ice cream treats.

Chocolate Frosty Ingredients

What's in a frosty? Our secret ingredient is to use Nestle Quik rather than chocolate ice cream. The cocoa powder in it makes a more accurate copycat of the original Wendys Frosty. The two remaining ingredients are vanilla flavor ice cream and milk. Give it a try.

The recipe makes one large chocolate frosty or two small frostys.

    My boys are going to LOVE you for this. They are always asking to stop at Wendy's for a Frosty!!


  4. Ruth says

    You mentioned in article whip cream, sweetened condensed milk and chocolate milk but recipe is different, why?
    What do I use? The ingredients in recipes?


    • Robin Gagnon says

      I had a freelance editor for a short while. She never touched any actual recipes, but did some bizarre things to the article portion. Hence I no longer use her and went back to writing everything myself.

    I was so excited to have found this recipe for Wendy's Frosty. Ten years ago when I was going through Chemo/Radiation for breast cancer...the only food/drink I could keep down was Wendy's Frosty's. During my treatments I'd get at least 2 of them per day. When the owner found out why I was coming in so much.,I never had to pay again. I've made 3 of these in past week. Thanks so much. Robin from Houston. ❤
