Hot Honey Butter Skillet Corn

Ingredients Needed for Creamy Honey Butter Corn
All you need for this recipe are 6 simple and easy-to-find ingredients:
- Frozen corn kernels
- Cream cheese
- Salt and pepper
How to Make Creamy Honey Corn
In a medium-sized skillet, melt the butter and honey over medium-high heat. Add the frozen corn kernels and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked through.
Add the cream cheese chunks, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Once the cream cheese has melted into the honey butter sauce, serve immediately!
Use Canned Corn
Swap out the 16-ounce bag of frozen corn kernels with 2 15-ounce cans of drained sweet corn. Reduce the cooking time in Step 1 to 5 to 6 minutes.
How to Store Hot Honey Corn
I love having leftovers (it’s so good why not have it twice!?) and this recipe stores so well! I usually end up doubling this recipe to enjoy it again the next day.
Store any leftovers (if you have any!) in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to four days.
My favorite way to reheat this recipe is in the microwave (in a microwave-safe container, of course!). Honey Skillet Corn can also be reheated on the stove using a small saucepan- adding a splash of milk if needed.
