My mother-in-law has made this Frosty for us for years! We all think it tastes just like the real thing! NOTE: This also tastes great if you use low-fat ingredients!


  1. Pour condensed milk and Cool Whip in an ice cream freezer.
  2. Fill to"fill line" with chocolate milk.
  3. Stir all ingredients, then turn on machine and let it freeze!

Perfect! I made this in my Cuisinart 1 Qt. Ice Cream Maker using 4 oz Cool Whip, 7 oz sweetened condensed milk and filling the rest of the way with Hershey's chocolate milk, freezing for about 25-30 minutes. The flavor and texture was right on the mark for Wendy's Frosty! We just loved this recipe and will be having it much more often!

I halved this recipe to make it in my smaller Cuisinart ice cream maker. This recipe is amazing. Really... it actually does taste like a Frosty and it was super simple. I mixed the ingredients in a stand mixer before pouring it into the ice cream maker and the results were amazing.

An absolute winner in our house! Since I have a 2-quart ice cream freezer, I had to use half of the Cool Whip, half of the condensed milk, and a quart of chocolate milk. We tried adding Hershey's Dark Chocolate Syrup to one batch to up the chocolate taste, but we decided the original recipe is more authentic tasting. I've made 4 batches so far. I put the left-overs in restaurant children's cups with lids which we have accumulated. These individual servings are put in the freezer and are taken out within 15 minutes of wanting to eat them. Also, I use the store brands of whipped topping and condensed milk. They are less expensive and still are tasty. Thanks, Becky, for an awesome recipe!
