Cinnamon Honey Butter

Printable Recipe

1 stick of butter (room temp)
1/4 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 cups of honey
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Whip butter with whisk or whisk attachment in mixer.  Add powdered sugar, honey and cinnamon and mix well, until smooth.

Holly's Note:
We recently discovered Texas Road House and love it.  The rolls and cinnamon honey butter are fantastic.  For Christmas this year, when a girlfriend dropped off a treat of homemade french bread and cinnamon honey butter, I had to have the recipe.  There are a lot of variations out there, but we like this one. The original recipe called for 1 t. of cinnamon, but The Doctor thought it needed more, so this recipe reflects our preference of 1 1/2 t. cinnamon.

2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup unsalted peanuts
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Holly's Note:

This is a staple of my dear mother's Christmas Goodie plates.  I believe that she received the recipe many years ago from a neighbor.  These are easy to make, delicious to eat and very, very rich.
