I try to not eat too much fast food, but, with all the traveling I do, sometimes a drive-through burger is my best option. Burgers and shakes are a perfect pair, but what I really love is a Frosty. Not quite a milkshake, but not quite ice cream, the Frosty is a Wendy’s classic. Restaurant chain founder, Dave Thomas, wanted a dessert to pair with his signature square burgers, but felt a 100% chocolate shake would be too overbearing. Introduced in 1969, the Frosty is a harmonious blend of chocolate and vanilla.
Thanks to POPSUGAR, you can make your own chocolate/vanilla swirled goodness in your home. This incredibly easy recipe is so simple that anyone can do it. You only need three ingredients for this restaurant hack: chocolate milk, sweetened condensed milk, and Cool Whip. You will need to get an ice-cream maker, but that’s hardly a poor investment. Save yourself a lot of money by making ice cream, milkshakes, gelati, and copycat Frostys on your own. It’s a fun and easy way to add that classic diner feel to your summer cookouts.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some very important grocery shopping to do.
