Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino

Starbucks Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino is a frozen drink, made without any coffee, in a blender. The chocolate drink is topped off with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. It’s double chocolaty since there’s both chocolate sauce and chocolate chips in the drink.

The Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino is this same drink but made with coffee.

Starbucks Frappuccinos are made using a Frappuccino base syrup that gives the frozen drink a smooth and creamy texture. This copycat recipe uses a homemade Frappuccino base syrup that should be made first.

Recipe Highlights

  • This copycat recipe recreates the Starbucks Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino using 8 ingredients, including the homemade whipped cream.
  • There’s no coffee in this drink but there is a little caffeine from the chocolate.
  • The recipe makes a grande size (16 ounces) drink.

Ingredient Notes

Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino ingredients.
  • Homemade Frappuccino base syrup: To make Frappuccinos just like Starbucks, you’ll need this secret ingredient. Make this first.
  • Chocolate syrup or sauce: Use store-bought or homemade chocolate syrup or sauce. The syrup is in the drink and drizzled on top of the whipped cream.
  • Dark chocolate: Break off a bit of a dark chocolate bar to get little chocolate pieces in the Frappuccino. The higher percentage of chocolate, the more bits of chocolate you’ll get in the drink since it’s harder to break down. You can also use chocolate chips.
  • Milk: Whole milk is what Starbucks uses to make their Frappuccinos since it makes the drink rich and creamy but you can use any milk you like.
  • Heavy cream: This is to make the whipped cream.
  • Vanilla syrup: The whipped cream is sweetened with vanilla syrup. Use store-bought or homemade vanilla syrup.
  • Ice: Use filtered water to make ice for a better tasting Frappuccino.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Whisk heavy cream and vanilla syrup using a handheld milk frother to make whipped cream. Set aside.

Expert Tips

  • There is a proper way to add ingredients into a blender to prevent air pockets. Liquids first and ice should be added last.
  • The Frappuccino base syrup should be made first. It can be stored in the refrigerator, ready to be used anytime you want to make a Frappuccino.
  • If you want to skip the Frappuccino base syrup, replace it with the same amount of simple syrup. Using simple syrup will make the drink taste the same but it won’t have the classic Frappuccino texture.
  • I recommend using homemade vanilla syrup and homemade chocolate syrup since they’re easier (and tastier) to make than you think.
