Commodity butter is made with 80% fat content, while European-style butter has 82% fat content. Amish-style clocks in at 85% fat content. “The more fat, the more flavor you have,” Adam said. This simple recipe for butter balls packs in all the delicious fat and flavor into one sweet bite-sized snack.
