  • In a bowl, using a hand mixer (or by hand with a fork) beat together the butter and ingredients for your chosen flavored butter.
  • Transfer the butter onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Then roll up to form a cylinder. Twist both end tight and refrigerate for at least one hour. The butter is ready to serve when cold and solid.
  • Butter will last in the refrigerator for about five days.
