Cinnamon Honey Butter

Cinnamon honey butter – it’s the perfect confection to make for neighbors, friends and family for the holidays!


It’s quick and easy to prepare, and everyone always loves it and asks me for the recipe!


This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.  Read my full disclosure policy here.


Just four simple ingredients – softened butter, confectioner’s sugar, honey and cinnamon. You can find the whole recipe at the end of this post but let me show you how easy it is to make!



Whip them all into a frenzy for a minute or so, then scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula to make sure you got all that yummy goodness at the bottom of the bowl.


4 oz. glass mason jars are perfect for your butter. I love the fancy diamond quilted ones for gift giving!


Use two spoons to scrape the butter into the jars. I find that 5 jars are perfect for an almost-full jar.



This makes a lovely gift for neighbors or friends, especially with baked goods! Buy fresh croissants at your local bakery or favorite grocery store, wrap them up in cellophane bags, and tuck the cinnamon butter in next to them.

If you’re going to be an overnight guest this Thanksgiving or Christmas, consider giving your hosts a breakfast basket complete with cinnamon honey butter, croissants or scones, and the fixings of breakfast beverages like coffee, tea and cocoa.


See how easy cinnamon honey butter is to make? And it is very happily received too! I hope you try it and save some for yourself. Give it a go on an ordinary Nutrigrain waffle, oh so good!

I have to hide the jars from my kids so they don't eat it all before I can gift them! :)
