This Easy Honey Butter Tastes Amazing And Makes A Great Gift

If I had to choose one food to eat for the rest of my life, I'd choose this honey butter spread over a warm, homemade dinner roll.

The recipe I’ll be sharing today is technically a honey butter recipe—but it’s not your grandma’s honey butter! After I made this delightful concoction for the first time, I immediately decided that simply calling it “honey butter” didn’t really do it justice. I eventually settled on the name “Honey Butter Ambrosia,” because this decadent spread truly feels like a food that’s fit for the gods! 🙂

It tastes incredible on toast, dinner rolls, tortillas, and any type of bread really. Not only is this honey butter recipe quick and easy to make, but it also makes a lot of it! You can keep a jar for yourself and still have plenty left to give away as Christmas gifts! I like to pair it with a freshly baked loaf of my mom’s English Muffin Bread to give to friends and neighbors. It’s a gift that is almost guaranteed to earn you friends and admirers! 😉

“Honey Butter Ambrosia” Spread

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3/4 lb (3 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Combine the sugar, cream, and honey in a saucepan, then place over medium-high heat on your stovetop.

Cook the mixture, stirring regularly, until it comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat.

Place the softened butter in your blender or food processor. Pour the hot sugar and cream mixture over the butter, then blend or pulse until well-mixed.

Add the vanilla extract, then blend again.

Pour the finished honey butter spread into airtight containers. (The amount fills two pint-sized mason jars plus one half-pint jar almost exactly.)

Keep refrigerated. The honey butter will stay fresh in the fridge for about 6 weeks, or a few months if stored in the freezer.

“Honey Butter Ambrosia” Gift Labels

Gifting this honey butter is as simple as adding a label and a bit of ribbon or twine! I’ve included a couple of useful files of pre-made honey butter tags that you can download for free! The first file is a PDF, which you can download and print at home. They fit perfectly on top of jar lids, so all you have to do is cut them out and stick them on your jar lids with a bit of tape!

Do you give any homemade treats as gifts during the holidays?
