Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Pinch ground black pepper
Directions
  • Put the softened butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Whip the butter until it's fluffy. Add the blue cheese, chopped chives, red pepper flakes and ground pepper. Mix until totally combined, scraping the sides as needed.

  • Lay out a long piece of plastic wrap on top of a piece of aluminum foil and scoop the butter mixture in a long strip down the middle of it. Carefully pull one side of the plastic wrap and foil over the butter, squeezing it gently to form it into a log. Continue to roll the log of butter into a roll. When it's all rolled up, twist the ends (like a piece of candy) until they become very taut (this means the butter is pressing together inside the plastic and foil to form a cohesive roll). Place the roll of butter into the fridge so it will harden, at least 1 hour, or into the freezer if you need to speed along the process.
