Sometimes, a Wendy’s Frosty craving just must be satisfied.

A Wendy’s Frosty is one of the fast food restaurant’s most iconic menu items. Whether it is eaten as a dessert or dunking fries into it, many people find it hard to resist that classic chocolate frozen treat. Even though Wendy’s has offered varieties on that classic Frosty, that spoonful of chocolate frozen treat is always a favorite choice.

When Wendy’s Frosty craving hits, it must be satisfied. Although there might be a fast food restaurant close by or a food delivery service might be available, it is possible to recreate frozen dessert at home. Luckily, there are many types of copycat recipes all over the internet.

With a few ingredients that might be in the pantry and refrigerator, anyone can make a Wendy’s Frosty at home. There are basically two versions of this type of frozen treat recipe. First, one involves an ice cream maker and another version uses a blender. Both recipes are basically three ingredients.

If you have an ice cream maker at home, that version of the copycat recipe is tastier. Truthfully, an ice cream maker is a great small appliance to have.

Personally, the Dash Deluxe Ice Cream maker is easy to use. Basically, all the ingredients go the small appliance, turn it on and everything churns into ice cream. It is so easy. Going into the summer, it is a must have.

For the Wendy’s Frosty recipe, simply combine chocolate milk, sweetened condensed milk and whipped topping (like Cool Whip) in the ice cream machine. Let it churn and you are done. It tastes just like the classic fast food frozen dessert.

If the ice cream maker is ready to go and you have the ingredients in the pantry, it is faster to make the homemade Frosty than it is to drive to Wendy’s or to order online.

In another copycat recipe, a blender is used. This version combines vanilla ice cream with Nesquik to create a Frosty. Again, if you have the ingredients in the house, it is easy to satisfy that craving.

Fast food copycat recipes are everywhere. From Pinterest to recipe websites, sometimes those homemade versions can be even tastier than the original.
