  2. Remove pan immediately from heat. Pour butter into a bowl. Cover and chill 1 hour or until butter is cool and begins to solidify.
  3. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; add Swerve alternately with milk and vanilla. Beat at low speed until well blended after each addition. Beat on medium high for 10 minutes to combine flavors.
