Candied Carrots – tender and delicious candied carrots that takes only 10 mins on skillet. Easy candied carrots recipe that is great anytime of the year.
We are leaving for Europe, but I have the perfect Easter recipe for you. These candied carrots are so tender, sweet and delicious, a perfect side dish to serve for Easter. Actually, this candied carrots recipe is great all year round: festive holidays or regular weeknight or weekend dinner.
The recipe takes only 10 minutes. You glaze the carrots in a skillet, so there is no need to preheat the oven and roast the carrots. First, you boil the carrots until they are tender, which usually takes about 5 minutes for tiny baby carrots as pictured here. Don’t overcook the carrots as they will continue to cook on the skillet.
In the skillet, you make the glaze by combining melted butter, brown sugar and season with salt and black pepper. Toss the carrots with the glaze and you have the most amazing, tender, buttery, and sweetest candied carrots that you just won’t stop eating. Have a great Easter weekend!
