I used to have a big old-fashioned ice cream maker and we used it so much that we completely wore it out within a couple of years. It made the best ice cream. It had a hand crank that incorporated more air into the cream and that made it really deliciously creamy and fluffy.
The ice cream maker came with an electric attachment as well and I the longer I had the ice cream maker, the more I found myself using the electric option as opposed to the hand crank simply for convenience purposes. When the time came to replace the ice cream maker, I debated about whether to replace it with another hand cranked maker or an electric model. In the end I opted for a smaller ice cream maker without a hand crank option. (Mainly because the electric ice cream maker was cheaper.)
To initiate my new ice cream maker I whipped up a batch of Wendy's Frosty's for my family. This recipe is super simple and it's all over the internet. I made a 1/2 recipe - to accommodate my smaller ice cream freezer.
8 ounces cool whip
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 gallon chocolate milk
Once it was slushy consistency, I poured it into glasses and gave it to my family for the taste test.
The results - they really liked it. The truth is that it didn't look and taste exactly like a Frosty - but it was pretty darn close.
There aren't a lot of things to take pictures of when you're making Frosty's so I decided to take pictures of my family enjoying their Frosty's.
