Brandy butter is creamy, sweet and slightly boozy. It is simple to make, you'll only have to whisk 3 ingredients together. Click here for the recipe!


Units Scale
  • 170g (1 1/4 cups) butter, room temperature
  • 170g (1 1/2 cups) icing sugar
  • 105ml (7 tbsp) brandy


  1. In a bowl, whisk your butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Continue whisking the butter while adding the icing sugar a tablespoon at a time until everything is fully incorporated.
  3. Once the icing sugar has dissolved, add the brandy a tablespoon at a time until it’s fully combined. 
  4. Serve with your favourite Christmas dessert. We served it with a Mincemeat Slice. Enjoy!


  • The amount of brandy may vary due to the fat content of the butter you use; use your judgment. 
  • If the mixture looks as if it has split then add a little icing sugar and a little more butter to bring it back together.
