Make Ahead Honey Glazed Baby Carrots with Brown Sugar
If you’re in a rush for time, you can easily prepare these slow cooker honey glazed carrots ahead of time. Just prep all of the ingredients the day before and dump into your Crockpot the next day. This recipe couldn’t be easier!
I use both honey and brown sugar to give these carrots the ultimate candy flavor. Carrots are naturally sweet, but adding these two ingredients really takes it up a notch! You can use whole carrots that you will need to peel and chop, but for this recipe we are going to keep it simple with bagged baby carrots. It’s up to you which type of carrot you want to use!
These honey and brown sugar glazed carrots are great for vegetarians and any picky eaters. Kids love them!
