How to keep butter based mixture from becoming solid?

Hey folks! I'm new here, bit this looks like an active community. I'm looking foreword to getting involved.

So here's my question. I'm trying to figure out that best way to keep a butter based mixture from becoming stiff in the refrigerator. Kind of like how spreadable butter, even when cold, is not too thick to spread. Another good example might be the Papa Johns garlic butter sauce that always stays runny.

I've tried a few things, none of which worked. So I'm getting tired of wasting butter and time and thought it'd be wise to just ask for some other opinions.

Any ideas?

There is a butter-flavored oil product used in restaurants called Whirl - it does not become solid. I've never really looked for a butter-flavored oil in a store but they may be out there.

I take my butter out in the morning and leave it on the counter - when I go to bed - in the fridge it goes. Bad or not I have done it for years !
This old lady is mighty fine !!

Read this.. You really don't have to worry about leaving butter out.

My family leaves the butter out on the counter. Isn't there any other danger other than rancidity? It doesn't last long, but it just seems really scary to me to leave an animal product out without refrigeration and say it's OK?

I had an aunt who always left the butter out.

Butter has been around a lot longer than the refrigerator.

If you are using it regularly would guess it is safe.

We've had a butter bell for almost 10 years and have had great luck with our butter. Because it holds only 1 stick, it gets used up pretty quickly, so there's little risk of the butter getting moldy or becoming rancid. It's a great way to always have soft butter.
