Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 bag (2 lb) fresh carrots, cut into 2 1/2-inch pieces

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Place 15x10x1-inch pan in oven 10 minutes to preheat. Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix all ingredients except carrots until blended. Add carrots; toss to coat.
  • 2
    Spray hot pan with cooking spray. Place carrots in single layer in pan.
  • 3
    Roast uncovered 30 minutes, stirring once, until golden brown. Immediately remove carrots from pan.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Preheating the pan while you’re mixing the other ingredients gives your candied carrots a jump start on roasting.
  • tip 2
    It’s handy to keep a kitchen ruler nearby, so you can make sure what you’re cutting is uniform in size and cooks evenly.
  • tip 3
    We use a 15x10-inch pan with a rim so the carrots will be in a single layer and will roast rather than steam. A shallow roasting pan also works well for this candied carrots recipe.
