Delicious Wendys frosty copycat recipe, made with 3 simple ingredients and taste exactly like the real thing!

Growing up, I was a HUGE Wendys frosty fan.  Okay, who am I kidding… I still am!  Now they have the vanilla flavor, but my heart still belongs to the original chocolate flavor.

I’ve been trying for a long time to recreate that classic frosty flavor… to no avail.  Don’t get me wrong, I made some pretty delicious chocolate shakes, including this boozy one, but none that were just right.

So what gives Wendys frosty that classic “frosty” flavor?  Read on to find out!


There seems to be two schools of thought on this one.  One version involves chocolate milk, sweetened condensed milk and cool whip, which you mix then put into an ice cream maker.  I’ve honestly never tried that version, mainly because I didn’t want to lug out my ice cream maker lol.  Plus, most people probably don’t own one!  My version is based very similarly on Todd Wilbur’s version from one of his Top Secret Recipes books.  It’s 3 easy ingredients:

  • vanilla ice cream
  • nesquick powder
  • milk
