Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots

I LOVE finding super easy but delicious side dishes. This next recipe is one of those. In fact, it has to be one of my all-time favorite side dishes ever!! My kids love them, the hubby and I love them, and they are so easy to do. I’m sure most of you have tried them, but the last time I made them they turned out super perfect, and I wanted to make sure I shared with you how I did them. The Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots recipe I used came from Simply Scratch. I modified it just a bit, and they turned out perfect!!

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 carrots makes them so stinking good!

YUMMY Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots... LOVE this recipe. So good and so easy! { }

I could seriously eat a whole bowl of this right now!! It’s definitely my go-to side dish!! :D

Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots


  • 1 Bag of baby carrots
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 TB butter
  • 1 1/2 TB brown sugar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. Bring carrots, water, butter and brown sugar to a boil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Turn to low and simmer for approximately 6 minutes.
  3. Turn back to high and cook until all the water is evaporated and carrots are tender. It took me another 5-6 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat. Salt and Pepper, and enjoy!

    Haha, I made carrots just yesterday and was aiming for the same effect, but wasn’t sure how to get to that result and used honey instead… Not bad either, but I think the next time I will go with brown sugar ;)
    Thanks for that! Take care :)

    Do you think these could be done in a small slow cooker?

      Hi Erin! I would think a slow cooker would work, but not sure of the temp and the length to cook. If you try it out and find a good version for it, let me know. :)

    Butter and carrots are such a natural combination, yum! And this is a great pull-it-out of the fridge recipe since no peeling is needed, great for when you need a quick veggie on the table!
