Delicious Candied Carrots Recipe | Perfect as an Easter Dinner Side Dish

Easter is in just two days! Will you be hosting or visiting family this year? Whether you are hosting, or need a side dish to bring to dinner, we have a really easy yet delicious side dish you can make/bring! This Candied Carrots recipe is from my Grandma (Hey Grandma!) and I remember it being at every Holiday meal at her house growing up, and we still make it today! It's not the healthiest per say, but it is so stinkin good!!

2 lbs Carrots
1 Cup Sugar
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Cups of Water
1 tsp Salt

Slice up your carrots long ways, not too thick, not too thin. Cut butter into quarter inch slices. Mix sugar, salt and water together with raw carrots. Place in a 9x9 or 9x13 baking dish, then add butter slices on top of carrots. Cover dish with tin foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.

  2. Certainly easy enough. I'd add some cinnamon.
