Why You Should Try This Recipe 

You can find a lot of recipes for great honey-butters online, but this one is truly one-of-a-kind. There may only be three ingredients, but the combination is so uniquely delicious you’ll want to keep plenty of it in your fridge so you’ll always have some on hand.

Honey Butter Ingredients

For this whipped honey butter recipe, you’ll need:

  • Butter
  • Honey
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk

You want to use good full-fat salted butter here. The richness of the fat and the salt keep the whipped honey butter from getting too cloying. Use unsalted butter only if you are on a low-sodium diet or want to control the amount of salt in the butter (use a pinch of sea salt).

  3. Pulse the butter mixture several times until the ingredients combine thoroughly, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Then blend for a few seconds until the honey butter becomes airy and has a light cream color. 
  4. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the honey butter mixture to a container.
