Crock Pot Cinnamon Brown Sugar Carrots is an easy side dish for any day, even for your holiday meal!
Crock Pot Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots are sweet & delicious.
And, the best part is, they are made in a slow cooker. So, all the prep work is done hours ahead of time. And, if you are serving this for a big holiday meal, it frees up your oven and stove top.
To make this recipe, pour a 2 pound bag of baby carrots into a slow cooker. Add 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Stir to coat the carrots in the butter and oil. Then, add 2 tablespoons of water to the crock pot. Give the crock pot a little shake to make sure that the water is completely covering the bottom. Put a lit on it. And, cook this on high for 3-4 hours until the carrots are tender.
Once the carrots have cooked, add 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Give it a good stir to coat the carrots and let the sugar start to dissolve. And, the carrots are done!
I don’t reccomend using the petite baby carrots for this, they’re too small. Use the fatter looking baby carrots.
I used a smaller 2 quart crock pot for this because for my big holiday meal, I’m using my large 6 quart crock pot for another side dish that I’ll be posting next week. But, if all you have is a large slow cooker, that will work too.
