Nothing says holiday food quite like HONEY BUTTER. Although this is such a simple recipe, it really enhances any special meal and will always remind me of Thanksgiving dinner at my great aunt Ina’s house when I was growing up.

In this post, I’m not only sharing how to make honey butter (including a simple ratio so you can make any batch your next party needs), but we’ll also be talking about butter boards. Did you see this trend? As an avid butter lover, I am INTERESTED.
Ingredients for Honey Butter:
How to Make Honey Butter:
In a mixing bowl (or the bowl of a stand mixer), combine all the ingredients and beat until combined. It is really that easy!
Honey to butter ratio:
Honey butter is made with a 2:1 ratio of butter to honey.
For example, you could use 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter to 1/4 cup honey. Or 1 cup butter (2 sticks) to 1/2 cup honey. Based on this ratio, you can make larger or smaller batches.
You should also adjust any other blending ingredients you use, like cinnamon or nutmeg.
What is a butter board?
A butter board is a cutting board on which softened butter is spread with other ingredients either mixed into the butter or sprinkled on top.
You can use a knife to scoop out some butter and spread it on bread or crackers, or you can dip right into the board. I like to think of it as the buttery version of a cheeseboard – it makes a great appetizer or side to a meal.
There are so many different ways to create a butter board! I decided to take some of the honey butter from this recipe and add a few drops of food coloring to make this artist palette inspired butter board.

What is the best method for softening butter?
The easiest way to soften butter is to take it out of the fridge the night before you plan to use it, so it can come to room temperature.
If you need to soften butter quickly, you can microwave it in short increments (15 seconds on high, then check before another 15 seconds) so it doesn’t melt.
How do you make a butter board?
Spread softened butter on the surface of a serving tray or cutting board, then sprinkle with sea salt or other toppings (like anything that flavors bagels) for a fun party tray.
Does honey butter need to be refrigerated?
no But if you want to keep honey butter longer than a day, I would refrigerate it and then bring it to room temperature before serving.
Can honey butter be frozen?
Yes, honey butter can be frozen for at least two months or more. Thaw in the fridge and bring to room temperature before serving.
Instead of mixing all of the ingredients for this recipe with honey butter, you can instead spread out the butter and then lightly drizzle with honey and sea salt to create a honey butter board.
You can serve any type of toasted bread or crackers with a buttered board. Some things I like are: toasted bagels, naan bread and croissants.
