Tastes nice but it curdled so I had to add extra icing sugar to bring it back on track.

I'm going to make this for Christmas but I was wondering whether you are really meant to use salted butter. Surely unsalted would taste better?

Delicious. Best I've ever made. I used the full 7 spoonfuls of brandy!! Everyone raved about it and it really made my Christmas pud and mince pies special.

The best brandy butter I have ever had. I did add extra brandy, but that's a personal thing...
