Flavored Butter Recipes + Free Printable

It’s always fun to jazz up a basic staple, like butter, with unique sweet and savory flavors. You can spread these tasty butters on toast, bagels, pancakes, banana bread and baguette slices for a weekday breakfast or Sunday brunch or serve them as a nibbler when friends come over. These butters also make a great gift (the holidays are coming up!) or make a variety of different flavors and bring them to a pot luck party or give as a hostess gift. It would also make a great appetizer for Thanksgiving.

This recipe is so simple. It really only takes literally a few minutes to make and is inexpensive yet gives an air of sophistication, especially when you offer a variety of flavors. (It’s a perfect nibbler to make when you’re trying to impress someone – like your in-laws or boss.)

For this blog post, I focused on sweet butters (my favorite), like blueberry, strawberry and honey. Here are some examples of flavors that you may enjoy, including savory and spicy that you can experiment with:

  • Garlic and herb
  • Lemon and herb
  • Roasted red pepper
  • Curry
  • Basil pesto
  • Lemon and dill
  • Bacon and cheese
  • Jalapeno and lime
  • Walnut and blue cheese
  • Cinnamon and chili
  • Cinnamon and sugar
  • Maple and pecan
  • Cranberry
  • Honey
  • Fig
  • Apricot
  • Peach
  • Strawberry
  • Blueberry
  • Grape


  • ½ cup of butter
  • ¼ cup of berry jam or fillings

(*The amount really depends on the size of your jar or container.)

Supplies needed:


Step 1: Mix ½ cup of butter and ¼ of berry jam or other filling until whipped.

Step 2:Place in a mini jar (if you’re creating a sampler or a larger jar if you’re giving as a gift).

Step 3:  Print out labels from home printer.

Step 4: Place labels on the jar.

Step 5:Place the jars in the refrigerator so the butter hardens.
