Spray the inside of a 1/4th measuring  cup With cooking spray. Measure out your honey and pour it into the butter bowl. Add a pinch of kosher salt. Mix this thoroughly then scoop into a small serving bowl. Cover with saran wrap and keep refrigerated . Take it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving.

Directions:

Take out the wrapper from your butter and place it in a bowl. Soften your butter by leaving it on the counter for at least one hour.
