This thread was started almost 10 years ago...and still alive and kicking, My goodness! As I read the first post by Diana, I can't help but wanting to also know the recipe for Cho Cho ice cream. So does the recipe still exist? I hope someone could point me to the post# for the recipe...if it exists.

Thanks so much.

I tried the Richcreator receipe,followed it exactly,used Greyer ice cream,That may be the taste some of you remember of the round pops you talk of but its not the rich,sweet taste of the toffee coated bars we got in Pa.Actually a Wendy's frosty is better.

I also loved the Cho Chos when I was growing up in Montana.  Years later in the 70's I was thrilled to find them in Santa Monica.  They were manufactured in Los Angeles, I noticed, but I never saw them again.  Today I experimented with a Chocolate Malted Milk recipe and it tastes as I remember!!!  So good.

Had to come back and share my memory. Now I remember what made them special beside the malt flavor. The crumbles on the outer chocolate layer were toffee.
Thats what put the magic in them.

I was born in 1934, remember cho cho bars well. Remember eating them in 1944 at the corner store. Last time I had one was in the mid 70's at a little place in McKean,Pa.Erie County.Made the 15 mile trip often as that was the last place left that sold them. They were a ice cream bar tan colored inside,heavy on malt flavor and covered with chocolate with crunchy bits on the outside.
They had a very distinctive taste kinda like a Wendy frosty but better. much better. I also recall the very first soft serve I ever ate I was about 5 at the time and they called them frosted malteds. This was in Erie ,Pa.
Was having a Wendy frosty with my Grandchild just last night and told her the story of how good Frosted malteds and cho cho bars were.That prompted a google search that brought me here. Do you remember the taste of Circus soft serve? The kind you bought at the circus under the big top. That had a distinctive taste also.

I was amazed to find this site and the other people who loved the cho cho's!  I lived in Billings, Montana and across the street from us was a meat locker plant.  They are the only ones in town that sold them!
I was probably 6 or so.  My sis and I have wondered if there was anywhere we could find them.  But, we never have.  
So, even in Montana we knew the wonders of cho cho's!!!
Thanks for the happy memories!
Cherri
