Molasses butter is a super simple, but CRAZY delicious addition to your flavor library. You can whip it up in literally 2 minutes and slather it on anything that you want to give a hint of gingersnap flavor. Goes great with scones, buttermilk biscuits, or even just spread onto toast. LOVE IT. I like a stronger molasses flavor so I add more molasses to my butter, but I've created this recipe to be a little more conservative, allowing you to taste and then add more if your taste prefers it.

Variation - Gingersnap Molasses Butter: If you want to make gingersnap butter, add 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger and a small pinch of ground cinnamon to the butter along with the molasses. Taste after mixing, and add more ginger or cinnamon if you want a stronger flavor. So good! If you're feeling sassy, you can even add the tiniest pinch of ground cloves. (Be careful -- a little goes a loooooong way!)This content was originally posted on FearlessFresh.com.
