Homemade Frosties. Holy Schmoly.

It's times like this that I'm glad I started blogging.

I found this pin.  It promised that, if you followed the recipe, you would be rewarded with homemade concoctions that tasted just like a Frosty from Wendy's.

Ppphhhhhffffffttt.  That's the noise I make when I'm skeptical.

But, skeptical or not, I am charged with researching these pins.  For you, my readers.  The things I do for this blog.

Three ingredients: Whipped topping, chocolate milk and sweetened condensed milk.

I halved the recipe because I needed to modify it: the original recipe said to put it in an 'ice cream freezer' which I'm told is a bit different than my ice cream maker... so I cut the recipe in half.  I put 8 ounces of whipped topping in my mixer...

And then I added seven ounces of sweetened condensed milk, which was half the can.

Then I turned on the mixer and mixed this up a bit.

I slowly added a half-gallon of chocolate milk and let it all mix.

I had to smash some of the still-frozen bits of the whipped topping although in hindsight, I don't think it would have mattered.

I transferred some of the mixture to a spouted measuring cup and poured it into my ready-to-freeze ice cream maker.

The amount that this recipe, no HALF of the recipe made, was more than too much for my ice cream maker.  So I put the rest in the half-gallon jug for later.

I will sleep better at night just knowing this is waiting for me.

After 15 minutes in the ice cream maker, it looked about the right consistency... trust me, I've done the research on the real thing.

I tested it right out of the ice cream maker... for quality-assurance purposes.

And then I melted into a ball of 'HOLYMOLYISTHATGOOD'.  It actually does taste like a frosty.  Even the hubs liked it:

You've gotta try this one.

  2. I've had this pinned for a while, but had the same skeptical reaction. Now I need to try it! I LOVE frostys. And I like the idea of having a jug of the mix waiting in the fridge. Ha! Thanks for sharing at Pin-ed it, Made it.

  3. Oh my goodness!! That looks so yummy!

    I'm trying to get swimsuit ready and all I can think about now is eating your Hashbrown Cheesy casserole with a glass of Chocolate frostie to help it go down!

  6. What a yummy and easy idea. Frosties were a decadent treat for me, but with all the added 'things' i haven't had one in years. This looks a much healthier way... do you think it could be made with whipped cream vs. the cool whip?? Just wondering...
