Ingredients You Need
Carrots – I prefer whole carrots that you peel and dice into coins for the recipe. I find it cooks up really nicely. Baby carrots can be used as well in replace of the whole diced peeled carrots.
Honey – So I used honey for the sweetening component to this recipe. If you want to add even more sweet go for a little brown sugar as well.
Butter – I recommend using real butter for this recipe. Unsalted or salted butter work great.
Rosemary – You can use fresh or dried rosemary for this perfect side dish! Toss the carrots well and it will help to blend all the sweet and savory flavors together.
Salt – This is optional. I find seasoning with salt after it is done, you will find elevates all the flavors. Salt and pepper are what we prefer.
Variations To Recipe
- Add in some garlic powder for a savory component.
- Use rainbow carrots instead of classic carrots.
- Maple syrup or brown sugar can replace the honey in recipe.

Step Three: Add your rosemary and sprinkle all over. If you don’t want rosemary you can then use parsley or skip this step.
Step Four: Place butter on top, and bake in the oven as directed.
Pro Tip: Depending on thickness of the carrots, the cook time will vary. So pull from the oven when the carrots reach your desired doneness.
Tips For Honey Carrots Recipe
- Evenly cut up the carrots for an even cook.
- You can prep the carrots 2-3 days in advance. Just store them in the fridge, until ready to toss in baking dish.
- Use less honey to lessen the sweetness of this dish.
- Feel free to add a little brown sugar as well for a brown sugar and honey glazed carrot.
Make Ahead Option
Peel and dice up your whole carrots and store in a sealed container in the fridge. You can do this 2-3 days in advance of when you plan to cook. This is a good prep option for say the holidays when you want to simplify cooking the day off.
Then right before cooking add honey and rosemary, pour into pan, drizzle over butter and bake as directed.
Store your leftover candied carrots in an airtight container for 1-3 days. You will find the carrots will be softer in texture once you reheat them from being cold. But, they will still taste delicious.
