When it comes to the one by Spoon University, all you need to do is take melted butter, and mix it with crushed garlic in a bowl. Pour this mixture into a cup and add a wick. Let this sit in the fridge and cool for a while. After a while, remove the butter from the cup mould and voila, you have a garlic butter candle.
Light the candle and dip a crusty bread and watch indulge it with the melting hot garlic bread. It’s simply mouthwatering and a great conversation starter at parties. I mean come on, wouldn’t it be amazing to sit around a table with friends, chat the night away, dip pieces of bread in the butter candle and devour it hot?
