Hollandaise sauce can be tricky to make as the ingredients need to be cooked just right to avoid separation. One way to boost your chances of a successful sauce is to use clarified butter. Clarified butter—butter that is liquefied and then strained until it's clear—helps stabilize the sauce so that it doesn't curdle. It is pure fat, whereas whole butter is 16 to 17 percent water, which can weaken the emulsion. Another trick to assuring your Hollandaise comes together properly is to have the ingredients at room temperature before starting to cook; they will emulsify better if they are warm.
