When you’re in a rush, there are always things to buy and sell.
Frost banks are a perfect example.
They are like a grocery store with an array of foods to choose from.
You can buy anything you need to get through the day.
But what you’ll need to do if you have a cold is buy frost banks.
It’s a quick and easy way to stock up.
We’ve put together a guide to make a few frost banks to stock your freezer.
How to Make a Frost Bank If you’re looking to stock a fridge and freezer, this is a great way to get started.
There are three ways to make frost banks: making one, making two and making three.
Making one Frost Bank First, make your frost bank out of a mixture of water, flour and milk.
Add enough water to make the dough sticky, but not too much.
The dough will come together when it’s kneaded, but will be soft and gooey once it’s baked.
Mix your frost banks in a mixing bowl.
Divide your dough into three equal pieces and flatten each into a circle of about 1cm square.
Bake the circles in a 350C oven for about 20 minutes.
If you need a larger oven for this, it’s best to add a small amount of water to the dough after it’s risen.
Cool on a rack and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
Making two Frost Banks Another way to make two frost banks is to make one and mix the other two together.
Make a large bowl and add enough flour to make it a soft, smooth dough.
Put a small piece of dough in and mix with the water and flour.
Roll out the dough in two circular motions, using the dough ball to help.
Make sure to knead the dough before rolling.
Bake in a 300C oven or on a baking tray in a 250C oven until the dough is slightly firm and the top is golden.
Cool for at most five minutes on a wire rack before transferring to a cooling rack.
Making three Frost Banks If you want to make three, make one batch of each recipe and then use the remaining dough for a second batch.
You’ll need a large mixing bowl, a spoon and a cutting board.
Make one batch and add the remaining flour and water, mix and bake for about 15 minutes.
The top will be golden.
Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Make the frost banks again and bake them for another 15 minutes until the top becomes crisp and the filling is set.
Serve warm with a drizzle of chocolate or frosting.
How To Make a Frozen Fudge Frosting If you’d like to make fudge with this recipe, make the frosting before you start.
Add the fudge to a blender with a splash of water.
Blend until smooth and then add the chocolate chips.
You should have a fudge that’s slightly fudgey and soft.
If not, add a little more water or a little milk to get the fudges a little bit fudgeier.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the fudging is done.
The frosting will set for about an hour.
The fudge will be firm enough to stick to the surface of the cake.
Frosting Tips To make fudgies that look like ice cream cones, add some melted chocolate chips to the fudi when it comes to making the icing.
Make these ice cream fudgs and you’ll be able to eat them straight out of the oven.
They’ll be a hit at any holiday party.
