I recently needed to bring snacks to a reception following an event my children were involved with.

Instead of making sugar-laden cookies, I decided to bring some bitesize pieces of bread and flavored butter.

Orange Honey Butter

2 sticks softened butter

juice & zest of one orange

2 T. honey (adjust to taste)

Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl, food processor, or blender.

Mix until the liquid is incorporated,

scraping down the sides with a spatula as needed,  and the butter is light and creamy.

Make a cute little tag and stick it on a skewer cut in half.  Insert it in the butter and place on a fun tray or platter.

I used about a loaf each of my Whole Wheat Oatmeal bread and Crunchy “Birdseed” Bread.

With an electric knife, I made slices, then stacked them and cut them into quarters.

I stored the bread in plastic bags until just before serving time.

It was a hit – not a crumb left to bring home!

    I’m sure it was a hit, because your breads are so delicious! The orange honey butter sounds good, too.
