Learning how to make honey butter is super easy and so quick! Keep a stash in your fridge at all times so you can have it whenever you feel like it!
Have you ever had honey and butter on a fresh-baked biscuit or warm slice of toast? Did you realize that making your own honey butter can keep you from waiting for that cold, slow-paced honey from the bear to make its way out of the pour spout?
Not only can honey butter help to save you a significant amount of time, but it can give you that perfect ratio of honey to butter in every bite.
Honey butter has become such a popular condiment that many stores now sell a premade version in their fridge sections, but homemade honey butter is better.
That could be a little biased in way of thinking, but you can use your favorite butter (unsalted or not) and your favorite honey (clover, lavender, etc.) there are over 300 different honey varieties out there and even more when you include the vegan options.
This honey butter recipe only needs two ingredients (and I bet you can guess which two they are!) Yup, honey and butter! Another awesome fact is that the recipe is finished in 3 steps, making it as easy as possible.
