Ingredients
baby carrots
1 lb. (453g) (I used Chantenay carrots, for their small size and naturally sweet taste)
Unsalted butter
3 tablespoons
Brown sugar
3 tablespoons
salt or to taste
Scant 1/4 teaspoon
Ground black pepper
3 dashes
Chopped Parsley
1 teaspoon

If you’re looking for an easy-to-make but tasty side dish for your Easter feast (or at any time of the year), then look no further than these candied carrots.

Baby carrots are made tender through boiling, so no having to wait around for them to roast in the oven. They are then covered in a brown sugar and butter glaze, and sprinkled with fresh parsley. Divine!

Instructions

Prepare the baby carrots by washing in cold water, and remove the part where the stalk meets the carrot.
