Add a little honey butter to your life. You deserve it.

If you want to make it super fancy, you can make your own butter. All you need is heavy cream.

Why Our Recipe

  • Keeping our fluff in the butter, not in the post.

A knife scooping out some homemade honey butter from the bowl.

Ingredient Notes

An overhead view of two sticks of butter and a bowl of honey.
  • Butter: always use softened butter or your arm will get a good workout. If the butter is not softened enough, it can look a little lumpy. Make it smoother by continuing to stir.
  • Honey: use whatever flavor of honey you prefer. You could use maple syrup for a maple butter twist.

Fork or Hand Mixer

We tested all the different ways to stir this together. A fork was our favorite for easy honey butter.

You could also use a hand mixer for a lighter whipped honey butter that is effortless to spread.

Storage Instructions

Store at room temperature in an airtight container like a mason jar for up to 3 days.

Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

Freeze wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and an additional layer of aluminum foil for up to 6 months.

Honey butter goes great on…
