My favorite fast food restaurant is Wendy’s. Give me a Chocolate Frosty and their french fries and I’m one happy girl. Unfortunately the closest Wendy’s is about 200 miles away. 🙁 When I get a craving for a Frosty I make these Magic Chocolate Milkshakes – which means we make these at least two to three times a week. 🙂 The recipe comes from the HillBilly Housewife. Check there for other tips on making the milkshake and other flavor variations. This recipe is also great for those of us who are LDS and need to rotate our supply of powdered milk
Magic Chocolate Milkshakes
- 1-1/2 to 2 cups ice water
- 1-1/2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 to 1-1/2 trays of ice cubes, as much as you can spare
- 2 tablespoons corn oil plus a 5-second squirt of non-stick spray for emulsification purposes
Place all of the ingredients into the blender, including the oil and the non-stick spray. Use less water for thicker milk shakes and more water for shakes that are easy on your blender motor. The blender should be about 3/4’s full. Place the lid on. Process for a full 2 minutes. Pour into cups and serve. Makes 4 – 12oz servings.
Now if I can just figure out how to replicate their french fries.
