Use a Blender OR Ice Cream Maker!

This Wendy’s Frosty Copycat recipe can be made in a blender or an ice cream maker.

I don’t have an ice cream maker, so I use my blender instead and it works great! You’ll just need to cut the recipe in half and whip it all up twice. Overall, it makes about 14 cups of chocolate frosty.

Just add the ingredients to your blender, one by one, finishing off with the cool whip.

Then just whiz the ingredients together and let it set up in the freezer for 2 hours (stirring it every 30 minutes). You can use a freezer bowl to speed things along, or any mixing bowl that is freeze safe.
