Chocolate Frosty’s

Creating a homemade version of the classic Chocolate Frosty, similar to the famous treat from Wendy’s, is simpler than you might think. This recipe delivers a thick, creamy, and chocolatey dessert that closely resembles the taste and texture of the original Frosty. It’s perfect for satisfying those fast-food dessert cravings right at home. Here’s how you can make it.

Homemade Chocolate Frosty Recipe


  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 8 ounces (about 1 cup) cool whip, thawed (for a lighter version, or use heavy whipping cream for a richer taste)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix the Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and cocoa powder until fully combined and smooth.
    • Stir in the whole milk and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  2. Fold in the Cool Whip:
    • Gently fold in the cool whip (or whipped heavy cream if you’re using that instead) until the mixture is uniform in color and texture. Avoid overmixing to keep the mixture light and fluffy.
  3. Freeze:
    • Pour the mixture into a shallow dish or container. Cover and freeze for about 4 hours, or until it reaches a thick, Frosty-like consistency. For best results, stir the mixture every hour during freezing to help break up any ice crystals and ensure a smooth texture.
  4. Serve:
    • Once the mixture has reached the desired consistency, give it a final stir to ensure it’s smooth and creamy. Serve immediately in glasses or bowls.
  5. Optional Toppings:
    • Though not typical of a classic Frosty, feel free to top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or a cherry for an extra special treat.


  • Texture: For a thicker Frosty, you can freeze it longer, but be sure to check and stir periodically to prevent it from freezing solid.
  • Serving: If the mixture becomes too hard in the freezer, let it sit out at room temperature for a few minutes before serving to soften slightly.
  • Dairy-Free Version: For a dairy-free alternative, you can use coconut milk and a dairy-free whipped topping. Adjust the sweetness as needed.

Enjoy your homemade Chocolate Frosty, a delightful treat that brings the classic fast-food favorite into your kitchen. It’s perfect for hot summer days, dessert nights, or anytime you’re in the mood for something sweet and refreshing.
