One of the BEST things to put on a fresh, warm slice of homeade bread, in my opinion, is honey butter. I love how it melts into the bread and tastes so sweet and buttery. Mmmmmmmm!! You just can't beat that!
The recipe for today has a secret ingredient that makes the honey butter stay so beautiful and fluffy, and it won't separate. It's really pretty great!
Here's what you'll need:
1 lb (4 cubes) butter
3/4 C. honey
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow cream
Set the butter on the counter for 20 minutes to slightly soften it. You won't want it at room temperature, otherwise it won't whip up as fluffy as it should be. But you don't want to use it right out of the fridge either. Then you'll end up with chunks of butter. So 20 minutes on the counter will be just right!
Whip together butter and honey, then add marshmallow cream.
Store in covered container in refrigerator.
Try this out with my yummy potato bread - right out of the oven! You won't be dissapointed!!
