This recipe is about as easy as it gets. The most crucial part is ensuring you work with softened room-temperature butter.
This is why I like making garlic butter directly in a butter dish. Let the Butter sit out overnight in the butter dish. By the next day, your Butter will be nice and soft, ready for added flavor.
Step 1: Prepare the chives and Italian Parsley by finely dicing them all.
Step 2: Add all the ingredients to the softened Butter and stir until everything is thoroughly combined.
