Caramelized Brown Sugar Buttery Carrots

You Will Need

2 Pounds Carrots (quartered and peeled)

(you can also use baby carrots)

4 TBS Butter

1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar

1 cup Chicken Broth


I love making super easy but delicious side dishes. 

I honestly think I could eat these every day, and it’s not because they’re carrots… it’s because adding butter and brown sugar to the carrots makes them so amazingly good! Brown sugar and butter compliment the carrots.

The butter and brown sugar really bring out the flavor.  And even though they’re buttery, they’re not heavy at all, which makes them easy to pair with just about any main dish!

I love vegetables, but my favorite is carrots, this is just a great "different" way to enjoy them. They taste a little of candied yams, but not near as heavy. 

These are the same as caramelized carrots or candied carrots. Mild and delicious!
