Decorative Butter for Your Thanksgiving Table

Decorative pats of butter add a festive touch to the Thanksgiving table. They are so easy to make using inexpensive candy molds .

Simply let the butter soften for about 30 minutes. Then, using a butter knife or small spatula, fill the molds. Check the underside to be sure there are no air bubbles.

Set the mold in the freezer for a short time to let the butter harden (it will be easier to get out of the mold if you do this). By applying a small amount of pressure to the underside of the mold, the butter should just pop out. Be careful not to dent the butter.

There are many great options available. Try the Wilton Silicone Mini Leaf and Pumpkin Mold and the Freshware 8-Cavity Maple Leaves Chocolate and Candy Silicone Mold .
