Cinnamon Honey Butter- Gifts in a Jar

Food gifts are always a favorite of mine.  These Cinnamon Honey Butter jars make a pretty presentation when you add a little bling to the jars, and pair with homemade bread,  pound cake, biscuit mix or even bagels!

I’ve made several batches already, and we wont mention how much my family has devoured!

Warning…… may want to double or triple the recipe because everyone is going to want some!

    What a fun idea!! Can’t wait for the pound cake recipe too – so much better than another boring store gift!!

  2. 93

    I just made the butter (a quadruple batch) to give with mini banana bread loaves. It is delicious and so easy!

  3. 94

    These look awesome..just wondering on their shelf life ( assuming that everyone doesnt eat them up in the first week?) Thanks

  4. 98

    do you have to seal it like youre canning it or just put the lid on it?

  5. 100

    Hi this may be a silly question but the powdered sugar is that icing sugar?

  6. 101

    Could i he margarine in place of butter?

  7. 102

    Could I use margarine I place if butter?

  8. 103

    I love this idea. I am going to use local raw honey and organic butter to boost the health benefits this holiday season. Thanks for sharing it. And for everyone questioning using margarine, grass fed organic butter is sooo much better for you than margarine. Butter contains butyric acid which feeds the cells in your colon. Margarine often contains trans fat or hydrogenated fats which are shown to be inflammatory. Inflammation is a key player in poor heart health. Choose whipped butter if you are looking for less cholesterol and saturated fat. Remember too, it’s about moderation. You probably won’t be eating this whole jar in one sitting… although it may be tempting.

    Sounds great! How many jars will this make???

  10. 106

    I hope you don’t mind, but I just gave you a shout out on my blog:

    Those jars are beyond adorable – thanks for the idea :)

  11. 107

    Hello! So I gathered up all the stuff to make these except 2 items! Where did you find the holly ribbon and the canning jars? I have been everywhere and can’t find them!

  12. 108

    how do you set up the 1.6 circle template in word?

  13. 109

    So I made this delicious recipe last night- love it! We’ll be shipping out our Christmas packages tomorrow. My question is- after I made the cinnamon honey butter, I put it all in 1/2 pint jars and I threw them in the fridge, just seemed appropriate. So is it fine to just ship them without any ice or anything? Will they still be good when they get to their destination?

  14. 110

    I made this today with the pound cake to deliver to friends for christmas tomorrow. I’m glad I made extra because both are ridiculously amazing. I used pure honey so it didn’t come out very smooth but it melts juat fine into warm bread. I found the jars easily too. Target has them and Hobby Lobby had them 40% off in the glass aisle.

    Thanks for the recipes and the adorable decor ideas!

    This recipe was great. Where can I purchase the exact jar shown with the recipe? They make the perfect gift.

  16. 112

    What would happen if you eliminated the sugar? Thanks!

  17. 113

    Who wouldn’t want to receive this??

  18. 114

    I am totally doing this for Christmas gifts! THANK YOU for sharing! The only question I have is, the bread recipe (original one) says to form the bread into a circle. The ones you have packaged in your photo look rectangular. Did you make pound cake instead? Or, did you make your bread as loafs? THANKS! :)

    • 115

      not sure what bread recipe you are referring to, but I have in the post “Add your homemade bread or pound cake,” – both are linked to recipes. My photos are with the pound cake

  19. 116

    1 cup honey & 1 cup sugar!!! Oh my! Isn’t it too sweet???

    Jennifer D. says:

    Wow, sounds great but also super sweet. Have you tried making it without the sugar?

  22. 119

    They look good enough to eat. Oh, wait, I can eat them! Thanks so much for sharing at our mason jar holiday party!
