  • 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.
  • This copycat recipe recreates the Starbucks Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino using eight ingredients, including the homemade whipped cream. It makes a grande size (16 ounces) drink.
  • Starbucks Frappuccinos are made using a Frappuccino base syrup that gives the frozen drink a smooth and creamy texture. This recipe uses a homemade Frappuccino base syrup that should be made first, and can be stored in the refrigerator.

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: Can’t make a chocolate Frappuccino without chocolate. Use homemade or store-bought chocolate syrup or sauce. The syrup is also used to drizzle chocolate on top of the whipped cream.
  • Dark chocolate bar: Break off a bit of a dark chocolate bar to get little chocolate pieces in the Frappuccino. The darker the 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 and flavored with vanilla syrup. Use store-bought or homemade vanilla syrup. Homemade is super easy to make and it’s delicious.
  • Ice: Use filtered water to make ice, if possible, for a cleaner and better tasting Frappuccino.

Expert Tips

  • Add ingredients into the blender as it’s listed in the recipe. Make sure not to add the ice in first. You want liquids in first, then the ice.
  • 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 same texture.
  • To make whipped cream in seconds, use a handheld milk frother to whisk the heavy cream and vanilla syrup. It should take about 30-50 seconds to get medium peaks. Use a spoon to add the whipped cream on top of your drink.
  • I recommend using homemade vanilla syrup and homemade chocolate syrup since they’re both super quick and easy to make.
  • If you like more chocolate pieces in the drink, use a higher percentage of dark chocolate since it’ll be harder, leaving more bits intact as the drink is blended.
