We love a good copycat recipe here at Forkly and this Wendy’s chocolate frosty is no exception! All you need is five simple ingredients and we promise you’ll get an exact replica of a good ole’ Wendy’s Frosty! It’s actually uncanny how identical our copycat version is to the OG. Creamy, dreamy, and oh-so-chocolatey. Have it as an afternoon snack outside in the sunshine or an after-dinner dessert to curb your sweet tooth – the choice is yours! What are you waiting for?

All you need is a blender to whip up this magical treat! Dump the entire tub of Cool Whip into the blender, then add the rest of the ingredients: cocoa powder, salt, vanilla, and icing sugar.
Lid the blender and blend on MEDIUM speed until well-combined, about 30-60 seconds. Make sure there aren’t any lumps left. If there are, give it another pulse or two! The blending will not only help combine the frosty, but it’ll add air to the mixture to ensure the final result isn’t too dense. You should see some air bubbles in the frosty after it’s frozen!
Once the frosty is all mixed up, transfer it to a cup that can go in the freezer. We opted for a mason jar (pretty and functional!) and it was the perfect size! Fill up your container, scraping out all of the frosty mixture from the blender. Lid the container and place in the freezer until “frosted” – about 4-6 hours. No need to worry about it freezing solid if you forget about it. The Cool Whip will keep it from becoming too hard.
Once it’s to your desired level of frostiness, pull it from the freezer and grab a spoon! It’s time to dig into this decadant, easy, summer treat!
