Combine the softened butter, garlic, and parsley in a bowl. Mix together well.
Use immediately, or chill before using. Can be rolled into a log, covered with plastic wrap, and then chill in the refrigerator.
Refrigerate for up to five days, or freeze up to three months.
Make sure you soften the butter on the counter for one hour prior to making this garlic butter recipe. If you try to soften it in the microwave it end up melting some of the butter which we don't want.
