Did I get your attention with the word “Frosty?” If you live anywhere near a Wendy’s fast food restaurant then you know what I’m talking about. The sweet treat that isn’t really ice cream and it’s not quite a milkshake. It’s in the in-between zone. And it must be eaten with a spoon as well as the occasionally slurping from the cup as it begins to melt.
Copycat Wendy's Chocolate Frosty
- 1 quart full fat chocolate milk
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- In a medium bowl, whisk together chocolate milk and sweetened condensed milk until combined.
- Pour into canister of ice cream maker and freeze according to your ice cream maker's directions.
- I turn my ice cream maker on before pouring. This helps to prevent the liquid from sticking to the sides right away.
I have a 1 ½ quart ice cream maker and this recipe works perfectly for this size. If your ice cream maker is larger, you may want to double the recipe.
My ice cream maker bowl must be frozen before use. I cover it with plastic wrap (so it doesn’t form ice crystals on the bowl) and freeze for at least 24 hours-48 hours. When I’m ready to use it, I pull off plastic wrap, pop it into position and turn it on. Then I pour the mixture into the bowl as it is turning. It takes about 25 minutes for it to set up to a frosty consistency.
