Wendy’s Chocolate Frosty

Just as thick and creamy as the kind from the drive-through.

Behold, the Wendy’s Frosty. It’s one of the most well known incarnations of the milk shake in the United States today. The most popular flavor is chocolate and only recently did Wendy’s offer up the vanilla Frosty, which to those who’ve had both, is just not the same. But that craving is out there and sometimes only a Frosty will hit the spot for us milkshake fans!

This cold treat is great, but you always have to leave the house to get one. Until now. The Frosty is actually quite easy to make at home. With just a few household dessert ingredients you can avoid drive-thru lines and make your very own Frosty!
