  • 1 tablespoon truffles 1 oz finely minced, or use truffle pate (see note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt optional


  • If needed, soften the butter by removing from the refrigerator 1-2 hours ahead of time. Alternatively, cut into ½-inch chunks and let sit on a cutting board for 10 minutes.
  • Combine the truffles and butter in a small bowl. Using a small spatula or spoon, blend until the truffles are evenly distributed.
  • Taste and adjust salt as needed.
  • Serve or use as directed in recipes. To store, cover and refrigerate for up to one week.


  • Truffles: You can use black truffles or pate for a nuttier flavor, or white truffles/pate for a muskier flavor.
  • Butter: Unsalted butter is recommended, and you can add salt to taste as needed. If you use salted butter, omit the salt.
