I do love a good Wendy's frosty, but when you live in the middle of nowhere like I do, it's not always feasible to stop and get one when a craving hits! This recipe is so easy and delicious! It's so simple that my nephews love to make them when they come over. I always try to keep a container of Nesquick in my cupboar for this exact reason. I do find that I like to add just a touch more of the Nesquick powder for a bit more flavour. Super yummy! You won't be disappointed.

I love, love, love Wendys frosty soooo much! I definitely will make this frosty. I dont have Nesquik but I found a recipe for Nesquik powder copycat. It just need cocoa powder (that recipe used Hersheys), sugar and a pinch of salt. And I read in the comment that someone use Ovaltine instead of Nesquik. So I think any brand of cocoa powder will work? Doesnt have to be Nesquik, right?

I'm happy to see all the satisfied people who made this and really liked it. I think the idea of using a mix of chocolate and vanilla ice cream plus the Nesquick (or that still around?) would really closely approximate the taste of the Frosty that my wife and I both love.

My husband made these for all of us last night. We had all the ingredients on hand, and he was really excited to try a homemade frosty. These were actually really close, only better. He did add a touch more of the Nesquik than the recipe call for. They were very easy for him to make, and we still have some leftovers in the freezer. This is a super easy, and delicious treat.

My family Loves Wendy's frosty's . this recipe is so much better then the crap wendy's currently serves . ( i do however tend to use 3 scoops vanilla ice cream and 1 scoop chocolate and use 1/4 nesquik )

instead of Nestles Quik I use chocolate Ovatine - read another site that said this is the one to use and it make it VERY close to taste - REALLY GOOD

Dip for fries? I thought I was the only one who did that!

This is very close to a frosty-my family loves them.

How much ice cream would it take for a single 8 oz glass?

I would use 1/4 cup milk , one scoop ice cream , and a table spoon of nes quik . That should be just enough

Sorry, but this tastes better than the stuff Wendy's currently serves.

I LOVE Frosty's but always thought it was some sort of secret recipe that I could never duplicate in the kitchen :) So glad this is included among the copycat recipes.

I have not tried this recipe, but I have one that is just like Wendy's Frosty. Mix 1/2 gallon chocolate milk, 1 can of condensed milk and 8 oz. container of cool whip. Pour into electric ice cream freeze and turn until hard. Any left over freeze well for another day. Easy and great.

this is a good reciepe but i would like to have the reciepe for the vanilla frosty

thanks for this recepie i love wendys frostys too

I will try this. I love Wendy's Frostys. Thanks
