Wendy’s Chocolate Frosty Hack
How you doin’? Have you been using the drive-thru or take-out options at your favorite burger places? Perspectives has worked for all of them—McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and others. I have my favorite menu items from each of them.
I first met Dave Thomas in the late 1970’s at Wendy's new headquarters in Columbus Ohio. Dave started the company in 1969 and he was very proud of the fact that he would never need a product development department.
“Our menu is cast in stone,” he told me. “Burgers, Frosties, French Fries and Chili (made from leftover burger patties).
In a short period of time Dave was providing his customers with fast, hearty food, in a simple family setting. However, that wasn’t the end of the story… within a few short years Wendy’s had added salads and salad bars, baked potatoes, fish and chicken sandwiches and breakfast, too.
In the long run, Dave got it right and added to the menu items that made them a powerhouse (and some that didn’t). In my humble opinion the burgers are good, the French fries are “okay” and the chili is/was excellent. But overall, the best part of the Wendy’s experience for me was the Frosty.
Prep time: 2 minutes
Freezing time: 30 minutes
Yield: 2-4 servings
This hack of the famous Wendy’s Frosty recipe is so easy to whip up. It tastes like a lighter chocolate milkshake, but it’s still super creamy and delicious.
12 ounces (1 standard tub) whipped topping, keep frozen (Cool Whip)
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1 cup chocolate milk
Whipped topping & chocolate sauce for garnish
ChefSecret: You can use fat-free, lite, regular or vegan versions of Cool Whip. I used 1% chocolate milk. You can also use soy, almond or oat milk instead of real dairy milk.
Covid-19 Quip of the Day: “I washed my hands so much because of COVID-19 that my exam notes from 1995 resurfaced.”
On a side note, it’s still amazing that the white, red and yellow In-N-Out Burger still knocks ‘em out of the park with just burgers, French fries, drinks and shakes. It was founded in 1948 by Harry Snyder and Esther Snyder and is still independent and family run.
